sport for life in action - west indies

Sport for Life International (SFLI) is an international community education and sports programme for 8-18 year olds currently running in Birmingham UK and in Barbados and St Lucia in the West Indies. Aimed particularly at those who have not been successful either at school or, very often, in society, it uses the power of sport, especially cricket, football and tennis, to improve the self-esteem of young people by helping to improve their educational and sporting skills.

  • International sport stadiums e.g. Kensington Oval, Barbados, Beausejour Cricket Ground, St Lucia, Queen’s Park Cricket Club, Trinidad & Tobago, Mirpur Cricket Stadium, Azad Kashmir, Pakistan
  • Sports centres, e.g. Sport for Life International Sports & Cricket Centre, Birmingham UK
