This conference will contribute to the development of research and scholarship on sport which can support programmes of sport in tertiary and higher education institutions.  Such knowledge would also support the needs of athletes, sporting and fitness professionals, organizations and practitioners at all levels of society, bringing into focus a new evidence-based approach to sport. We in the Caribbean recognize the importance and potential of sport as a vehicle that has allowed our citizens to reach the highest levels of human achievement. In short, sport has already proven its merit for our societies and as such its impact and potential within these societies needs to be studied.

Panels will be based on quantitative or qualitative studies and include, but are not limited to the following sub-themes:

●        The Role of the State

●        The History of Sport in the Caribbean

●        Literary Discourses on Sport 

●        Sport for All- Development of the Whole Person

●        Sexualities and Gender Identities in Sport

●        Women and Sport: Issues and Challenges

●        Physical Education

●        Sporting Facilities

●        Sport and Persons with Disabilities
