“What exactly is the Boys and Girls Championships? The only way to properly answer this question is to actually go to Kingston, Jamaica, at the end of March and witness the event that is affectionately and simply known as ‘Champs’. The biggest and the most popular athletics competition in Jamaica, ‘Champs’ is a nationwide team competition among high school teams, consisting of athletes aged 10 to 19. But it’s more than that. Most importantly, it’s five days of a general excitement.” – IAAF.
In 2019, the dates are March 26 – 30, 2019. And, if you plan to check out Champs – live and direct or viturally – here’s some helpful information.
