SKNAAA Appoints Stewart Joseph to lead at World Indoors

Coach Joseph is one of three (3) CECS Level V coaches who currently reside in the Federation. With over two (2) decades of coaching, Joseph has represented the St. Kitts Nevis Amateur Athletic Association (SKNAAA) in a number of technical and administrative capacities, including the inaugural appearance at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Pune, India (2008), the World Youth Championship in Ostrava, Czech Republic (2007).

He has also been selected on multiple occasions as Team Manager, Technical Leader or Head Coach for top regional and international events such as the Carifta Games, Pan American Junior Championships, CAC Juniors and the Leeward Islands Youth and Junior Championships.

As a coach, his legacy is built around the grassroots aspect of athletics with a concentration on sprints and hurdling.

In related news, over 190 athletes competed, including national record holders Virgil Hodge and Delwayne Delaney in a Development meet on Sunday 12th February at the Silver Jubilee Stadium in Bird Rock.

However all attention was placed on the field events as Clairvon ‘Ces’ Kelly leapt to a height of 1.93m to attain the B standard in the Under 17 male high jump; a height that would have had comfortably secured him the silver medal had it been 2011.

Unsurprisingly, also qualifying with a B standard was Adrian Williams, the current Carifta Record holder in the male Under 17 Javelin. He is now competing in the U-20 category. His throw was some 47centimeters short of the A standard.

We however remain optimistic about his potential to meet the qualifying standard for this year’s championship.
