These junior boxing sessions are aimed at all beginners, introducing boys and girls, aged 10 to 14 yrs. to the sport of boxing, who have intentions of going on to compete when fully trained to do so. This is the main criteria in joining what is a competitive level class albeit at a beginner’s stage.
Everyone enters at a lower level to learn the basic skills and techniques that will enable them to be promoted to a higher level of competitive boxing sessions. This is done when the coach recognises you as being sufficiently competent, fit and dedicated. Sessions include technique, bag work, sparring, skipping, circuits etc. A good level of dedication is needed for boxing and you will be worked hard to gain this of fitness. Equipment is available for use but you will be encouraged to purchase your own if you are serious about the sport. All basic boxing equipment can be purchased from the club. Gum shields and hand wraps are a must have item of equipment for all Junior Boxing Members You will not be allowed to spar until the coach is confident that you have achieved the required standard to do so and have a suitable gum shield.
