GC Foster College – Spanish Town, Jamaica
Jamaican Sports College
While staying with friends in Spanish Town last month I had the opportunity to go on a mini-tour of GC Foster college. Since my friends only live minutes from it they offered to walk me over to see it. I’ve since read that this is one of the premier sporting colleges in the Caribbean!

This afternoon was blazing hot but if there’s something to see in Jamaica I have to go! This is how the college looks from GC Foster road, walking towards the front gate.
I’m not 100% sure that just anyone could walk through the security gates or not since I was with local friends who seemed to know the gate staff. As we walked through there’s a long walkway up to the college, passing a swimming pool that looks like it hasn’t been used in decades! Mind you, if this was full of clean water I probably would have jumped in I was so hot!
We entered the main building and unfortunately I didn’t whip out my camera and start taking pictures. There were classes in session and people in the halls. I’ll only go so far to look like a tourist LOL!! It was SOO nice and cool inside with the A/C and right inside the main lobby I saw an ATM. That was handy since I needed money anyways.
Here are a couple more pics from the college grounds.
I don’t know a whole lot about GC Foster College but have browsed their website since returning. I did learn that world famous Asafa Powell and Usain Bolt have both competed in track and field events here. Cool…walking on the same ground as them.
Here’s the GC FOSTER WEBSITE if you’re interested in learning more!
