Pre-school Kiddies Athletics

The Pre-school Kiddies Athletics program is one of the department’s most lauded initiatives. After conducting some research and consulting with key stakeholders, we recognized a need to introduce fun physical activities with a focus on basic skills to children 3-5 years old.

Football Programme

The world’s most popular sport continues to grow at youth level here in Nevis. Despite our modest population size there has been steadily increasing during the last four years in the number of boys and girls participating in football. The Department of Youth & Sports facilitates several development programs, and also work with all the National Youth teams for Nevis from U13-U20.

Netball Programme

The department of Sports netball program is one that focuses on fundamentals and laying the foundation to produce national team players long term. The program incorporates skill activities, minor games, and modified matches that are tailored towards our development goals. Currently our program targets high school age girls, but in 2015 a new initiative for primary school girls called “Let’s Play” will be rolled out.
