Jamaica: High school sports teams at war

Categories: Caribbean, Jamaica, Education, Women & Gender, Youth

From Leon Robinson, a rather dispassionate discourse [1] on the “war” being waged between rival Kingston high school teams in the “Champs”, the VMBS/ISSA Boys & Girls Athletic Championships. “We even have “territories”, places where rival schools are not welcome, at least not in frequency or numbers. . . . We share an uneasy truce since our schools are close to each other. . . . There are even “nesting grounds”, girls’ schools or co-ed schools that we get our females from.”
