History[edit]

The Caledonia AIA Football Club was founded in May 1979 by a group of schoolboys from the Morvant, Laventille, San Juan and Barataria environs; one of whom includes prominent leader Jamaal Shabazz. What started out as a group seeking an avenue to provide disciplined recreation, it has developed into a household name in local and Caribbean football. The Club has a franchise in the TT Pro League and runs a full professional team; employing 28 players and 7 staff on a full-time basis. Apart from the professional team the Club runs a Youth Academy and Youth teams in Under 14, Under 16 and Under 18 age groups, catering for over just over one hundred kids at a recreational level.
