Historical Rivalry between Kingston College and St. George’s highlights the North Street Cup, which now includes Wolmer’s and Holy Trinity.
In the spring of 2013, the first ever official High School lacrosse game in Jamaica was played between North Street rivals, Kingston College and St. George’s College. Holy Trinity hosted the game, which was played in a torrential downpour and saw Kingston College emerge with a 6-2 victory, in a game that will do down in the record books as the first ever official high school lacrosse game in Jamaica.
Since that time, lacrosse has continued to grow and develop in the downtown / North Street schools, with Wolmer’s and Holy Trinity forming teams this past year as well. Earlier this year, the first every Taino Cup HS Lacrosse championship competition was held with St. George’s topping Holy Trinity in the gold medal game, and Wolmer’s topping KC in the bronze medal game.
The boys at all four schools can’t get enough of the exciting new sport, and we are happy to bring back the North Street Cup competition to feed their passion for the game.
The JLA has hopes to expand the sport to more schools in the next year. For more information emails us at email@example.com and stay tuned for news on our free summer camp in July!
Notes & Details:
- All practices and games will be run and overseen by guest volunteer coach, Neil Davis.
- We will not have additional helmets to distribute until our summer camp, so you will need to have your own equipment already. We encourage new recruits to attend our summer camp.
- After two rounds of games we will rank the teams 1, 2, 3, 4 for the championship week. Team 1 will play 4, and 2 will play 3, in the semi-finals on Tuesday, April 26. The winners will advance to the Championship and the losers will play in the bronze medal game on Thursday, April 28.
- All games and practices will be held at STGC’s Emmet Park or Holy Trinity.
- Coach Davis will run joint team practices with 2 teams at a time. Captains are encouraged to organize additional team training on their own at their respective schools on days when they don’t have official practice. We cannot organize or mandate this, but encourage you to be leaders and to organize your team.
- All boys should be playing “Wall Ball” on their own to improve their skills.
- We will have a championship trophy and medals for the winnings teams.
