International Men's Day 2022 | Men Leading by Example

 IMD The State of Men & Boys Forum 25 November, an opportunity to engage men through male-to-male candid discussions on topics that include mental health, relationships and gender. The overall objective is to inspire participants to become agents of change by increasing their understanding on the subject areas and learn to embrace masculinity in a healthy way. Additionally, this conference will launch new programming targeted to boys and young men who experience the world from a masculine perspective.



This year’s theme “Men Leading by Example” encourages men to teach boys in their lives the values, character and responsibilities of being a man.  We have organized various activities in observance of the theme among which is The State of Men & Boys Forum, Men & Boys Football Tournament, IMD Dress for a Cause, Men & Boys Basketball Tournament & Raising Resilient Boys parenting webinar. 

The sporting events organized for International Men’s Day are unique as they are aimed at encouraging healthy and fun interaction between men and boys. This year, we will be partnering with the Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) & the Cayman Islands Basketball Association (CIBA) to organize the football tournament and basketball tournaments. All teams will consist of a mixture of men and boys, which will encourage positive male interaction and role modelling.

As we continue to make changes in our lives to adjust to the reality of COVID-19 within in communities, we also continue to strengthen our support for men and boys. Our mission remains unchanged - creating a nurturing and empowering world for men and boys. It is in doing so that we are able to promote 'Better Relations between Men and Women'.

One of the six pillars of International Men's Day is to promote gender relations and promote gender equality not only for men but for women too. This pillar has influenced the 2021 IMD theme. International Men's Day is observed annually on November 19.

The competition takes place in two (2) divisions for juniors (U12) and open seniors for all other players. What is exciting about our basketball extravaganza is that there must be a minor on court at all times during the senior division. This gives an opportunity for both men and boys to play together in a healthy, competitive manner and build camaraderie. This staging includes live entertainment, a free throw and minute-to-win-it contests and a cash prize of $1000CI. Registration is FREE!
