2013 District Sports Festival Finals

The Grand Final of the District Sports Festival (DSF) for the year 2013 took place on Sunday, March 16, 2014 at the Benjamin’s Park.

Persons representing the communities of Dubique, Marigot, Morne Prosper, Lagoon, St. Joseph, Castle Bruce and Pointe Michel converged in the town Portsmouth for participation in cricket, football, basketball, netball, track, rounders and volleyball.

The teams represented the champions of the eight (8) DSFs which were held earlier in 2013, however, only seven (7) communities participated in Sunday’s activity since La Plaine – the South East District Champion, failed to show up.

Following Sunday’s activities, which saw involvement of more than two hundred (200) participants, Marigot emerged as the overall winner, with a total of 35 points and 1st placed finishes in cricket, football, basketball and volleyball.  Marigot was followed by Morne Prosper with 25 points with second placed finishes in track, rounders and netball.

The 2012 champion village, Dubique, placed 3rd with 23 points and first placed finishes in rounders and track.

Trophies were presented to the winners of the seven (7) sporting disciplines, in addition, to the championship trophies which were presented to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed teams.

The Champion village will receive the award for the “Best Sporting Village of 2013” at the National Sports Awards to be held on May 7, 2014 and is also expected to receive a cash incentive from the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports – Hon. Justina Charles.

The DSF is one of the strategies that the Sports Division is utilizing to rejuvenate sports at the community level while bringing people together for recreation and socialization.
