Team Jamaica Bickle, Inc. (TJB) is a not-for-profit corporation based in New York State. The organization was formed in 1994 and was later designated a 501(c)(3) organization.

 

TJB is the leading organization in sports, providing support services for Caribbean athletes, particularly Jamaicans who compete at the annual Penn Relays Carnival, held at the University of Pennsylvania, (UPENN) in Philadelphia, PA.

 

Its founder is the current CEO Irwine G. Clare Snr. The affiliated TJB-Philadelphia Organizing Committee was simultaneously formed. The Friends of Team Jamaica Bickle, also based in Philadelphia, PA, is headed by Blane Stoddard.  TJB's mission is embodied in the motto, 'Our Athletes, Our Ambassadors'.  TJB’s services currently extend to a delegation of approximately six hundred & fifty (650) students and coaches from Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, Guyana and St. Vincent & The Grenadines.

 

Over the years TJB has extended its services to delegations of students and coaches from the United States Virgin Islands (USVI), and Barbados; and will continue to expand its services in continuous service to our athletes as we anticipate more requests from other Caribbean nations.

 

Team Jamaica Bickle, provides the following during the course of these relays:

 

  • Meals and other refreshments;

  • Physical therapy, chiropractic and medical services;

  • Transportation: daily shuttle to and from the stadium; 

  • Airport transportation: arrival & departure;

  • Subsidized hotel rate;

  •  Subsidized air fare.

 

In 1999, Team Jamaica Bickle became the first Jamaican organization to be a participating sponsor at the Penn Relays. As a result the Jamaican flag became the first foreign flag to be flown at the Penn Relays, a distinction unmatched. Over the years, TJB has received numerous proclamations and awards from several local and national entities.
