Sport Development a Priority for GRENLEC

The Grenada Shotokan Karate Association (GSKA) is the national association to benefit most recently from GRENLEC’s Community Partnership Initiative (GCPI).

A seven-member GSKA team is currently attending the 10th IKD/CKC Caribbean Karate Championship & Camp in Barbados due to end this Sunday 14th July. The GSKA is the national karate association with membership to the National Olympic Committee and the World Karate Federation.

This collaboration with the GSKA closely follows partnerships with the Grenada Netball and Volleyball Associations. Grenada’s Under-23 Netball team benefitted from support to participate in the ongoing OECS/ECCB Tournament in Antigua. GRENLEC was also pleased to partner with the Grenada Volleyball Association, which recently hosted the second round of the Female World Qualifiers, in which our female national volleyball team participated.

Corporate Communications Manager of GRENLEC, Prudence Greenidge notes, “The GCPI has identified sport as one of its priorities, and it supports developmental activities and initiatives of umbrella sporting organisations. The Company’s commitment to sport this year is approaching half a million dollars”. Among the many other noteworthy ventures are the construction of a $300,000 multi-purpose hard court in Boca, the Grenada Football Association’s Grass Roots Programme, the St. Mark’s Football League and Mt. Airy Wind ball Cricket.

Sport is among a number of priorities that the GCPI addresses to increase opportunities for youth and community development. The other areas include education, social services, culture, science and technology and the environment.
