Teambuilding with CARIFTA Swim Championship Team 2018
Come join the water movement!” That was the slogan for the recent swim meet held in Jamaica over Easter, and New Generation is happy to say we joined the water movement!!
When New Generation first began offering team building training to groups, one of our target groups was the various sporting teams which represent Jamaica. Nobody knew us then, so nobody took up our offer. But 15 years and the word is getting out, and we were asked to train the CARFITA Swim team.
The CARIFTA games is an annual sporting competition between all the countries in the English speaking Caribbean, featuring high school students. The main championships is the one featuring athletics, but there is also a Swimming Championship which has been held since 1985. Last year Jamaica placed 6th, and with the championships being held in Jamaica this year, the push was on to finish in the top three.
Enter New Generation. A team of us put the young people through their paces, pushing them to work together as a team, eschewing their selfish individual goals for the good of the country. We believe we played a small part in the team moving from 6th place to 3rdplace this year, and they were just a couple points out of second.
Way to go Team Jamaica!!!
