"A resource hub designed to equip Barbados Athletes and key stakeholders with the tools to LEARN and develop skills that can benefit their careers on and off the field of play."

One of the objectives of the Barbados Athletes’ Commission is to engage national athletes in activities and projects to support their development. We created this platform to educate athletes and to help facilitate their overall growth on and off the field.
