The CARIFTA GAMES originally slated for the Easter weekend – April 3-5, 2021 have been postponed until July.

The region’s biggest junior track and field event will now take place from July 2-4 in Hamilton Bermuda.

The decision was made by the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association (NACAC), following a council meeting last night.

NACAC president Mike Sands said the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic was the major contributor to the change in CARIFTA dates.

“Time is running out, and the situation is not improving globally. The NACAC family, the Carifta family is affected. We took a decision at the Council level to do a survey with membership to determine the best course of action. There were several options for a date change, and we ultimately decided on July 2nd to 4th,” Sands said.

Last year, COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the 2020 Carifta Games, in Bermuda. (AGB)
