Beyond our support for sports at the school level, LUCELEC’s Power of Caring encompasses sport at the club and national levels. LUCELEC was a proud partner in Saint Lucia’s hosting of the 2009 CARIFTA games, two preliminary rounds of the regional tournaments of the 2010 World Volleyball Championships, and the 2009 OECS Cycling Championships as part of our continuing support for the St. Lucia Athletics Association, the St. Lucia Volleyball Association and the St. Lucia Cycling Association.
We also provided support to the St. Lucia Amateur Bodybuilding Association towards St. Lucia’s participation in the Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Championship in Grenada, the St. Lucia National Netball Association to send a team to the OECS Under 23 Championships in Nevis, the St. Lucia Amateur Swimming Association to facilitate St. Lucia’s participation in the 19th Annual OECS Swim Meet in Grenada, and the St. Lucia Rugby Football Union towards participation in the North America and Caribbean Rugby Association 7-A Side Championship.
At the club level, we assisted the Vempers Sports Athletic Dramatic Club (VSADC) in staging the Michael Fedee Memorial Invitational Football Tournament. We contributed to the Morne Stars Athletic Club’s participation in the 34th Hampton Games in Trinidad & Tobago and provided bronze level sponsorship to the Annual Inter-Club Invitational Swim Meet at the Rodney Heights Aquatic Centre.
And through the Ministry of Education & Culture we contributed towards District II’s Inter-School Football Competition and the Annual Sports Meet for District IV.
