Sports Development in the OECS 

The OECS Sports Desk was established in 1985 to develop a harmonized sports policy framework in recognition of the significant contribution sport can play in facilitating health outcomes, cohesive societies and driving investment in new sectors such as sports tourism.  Governments of the OECS region have confirmed their increased commitment to the sports sector, through investments in sports facilities and the growth in the number of National Sports Federations in Member States.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has ten members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Martinique.
