Netball in St Lucia

 

Netball in St Lucia is the number one sport for women, with hundreds of players taking part across the island, and is played in the majority of schools, where it is the number one sport in terms of playing numbers.

 

There is frequent coverage of netball in the local and national newspapers in St Lucia. Funding for The St Lucia National Netball Association comes mostly from affiliation fees with the Government and sponsors contributing towards regional and national tournaments.

 

We have seen netball grow rapidly across the island since the introduction of our projects. We have introduced new sports camps, and donated kit to allow even more children and young girls access this fantastic sport.

In our youth and community projects our aim is not only to develop basic skills but also to increase the enthusiasm, participation and enjoyment of the game. Here the emphasis is on fun! Netball is a fantastic mechanism for change and we try to use it with our at-risk young females to help empower them and improve their self-esteem.
