The Guyana Hockey Board has selected 16 females and 17 males to participate in the upcoming qualifiers for the Central American & Caribbean Games 2018 being held in Kingston Jamaica. The qualifiers are being held at the Mona Complex in Kingston from 5th to 12th November and will feature both male and female competitions simultaneously.
As a result of their absence from international outdoor competition recently, Guyana finds both its teams vying for the final two places in the CAC Games with those spots going to the top two finishers of the qualifiers. The men’s team last competed in international competition when they narrowly missed silver medals in the Pan Am Challenge held in Peru in 2015. In this qualifier, they will face challenges from hosts Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Guatemala and Panama.
The women last competed in the CAC games of 2014 in Vera Cruz Mexico where they finished 6th of eight teams. Qualifier hosts Jamaica, will be looking to avenge their penalty shootout loss to Guyana at the last games while Bermuda, Guatemala, Panama and Puerto Rico have also entered the competition.
The teams travel to Jamaica tomorrow (Sat 4th Nov) on Fly Jamaica and the airline has provided part sponsorship through a special discounted package offer to the teams.
