Jameel Stuart started playing cricket at the tender age of five for the St Giles Primary School after falling in love with the sport after watching it multiple times on television. He was youngest player to play for the School in their history. His highlight for the school came in 2005 when he led the School to the Herman Griffith title as captain by gaining the most runs and wickets in the Competition.

These performances led to him being selected for the National Sports Council Under-13 team. In his final year for the team he won the Most Valuable Player award in the St Kitts and Nevis 13 and Under invitational tournament. He amassed the most runs in the tournament (300), the most wickets (20) and also the most catches (10). It was clear he played an integral role in regaining the title for the NSC Under-13 team.

He moved on to the St Michael School where he was coached by former West Indies fast bowler and now West Indies Women Assistant Coach, Ezra Moseley, who played a major role in the his development.

During his time at the famous school, Stuart, affectionately called "Salty", amassed eight centuries. He captained the Barbados Under-15 team where he was the top scorer in the team and the second highest overall in the tournament with 280 runs at an average of 52. He went on to captain the Barbados Under-17 and Under-19 teams. Stuart also captained the Guardian General Barbados Youth team in the domestic Elite division competition.

Stuart moved on to represent one of the most famous clubs in Barbados, Spartan, for one season where he scored 383 runs at an average of 31. He then joined the Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme where he was immediately named captain of the team. In the 2015 domestic season, he scored 525 runs including three centuries in the Elite division Championship and was the highest run scorer in the Sagicor General Super Cup Championship with 445 runs at an average of 49.44.
