What are the new changes to ‘Champs’?

Changes to ChampsThis year’s Champs competition will see new changes as a result of 105 principals voting in favour of rules that would benefit student athletes. The implementation of the five-point proposal was recommended by the technical committee of Boys and Girls' Athletics Championships and is said to be in the best interest of the students.

In The Beginning – The Years Before ‘Champs’

From the ArchiveMost Jamaican athletics fans know that the Champs we know and love today began in 1910. However, most people are unaware of any high school competitions but prior to that. We take a trip down memory lane to those pre-Champs years. http://digjamaica.com/blog/2016/03/17/in-the-beginning-the-years-before-champs/
