We believe our coaches' positivity, motivation and patience draws kids and young adults to the club, and as a result, a magnetic culture has been created where our members train with a smile, laugh, have fun, whilst trying to be the best they can.
The physiological benefits of boxing have been widely reported. These benefits include:
Enhanced cardiovascular health

Boxing has been proven to benefit children with social, emotional and behaviour problems. These benefits include:
Increased focus and listening
Improved ability to work as a team and have positive social interactions.
Provide an understanding and ability of self-discipline and to take responsibility.
Improved memory and retention skills.
Dramatically increase self-esteem and self-confidence
Teaches respect, which then helps their behaviour to improve in other situations like at school or home.
Creates an anti-bullying ethos.

We have 6 competitions/shows on island every year in which our boxers compete against visiting teams from UK.
There is a pathway to progress further in boxing, but this would require travelling to the UK for competitions.
At the moment we do not have any programmes for people with disabilities, but this could be looked at on a case-by-case basis.
We are always looking for quality coaches, referees, judges, etc.
Anyone looking to volunteer to help with our boxers should in the first instance contact the Boxing Development Officer.
Our volunteers who wish to progress into becoming a coach, tend to start assisting with our juniors first in order to understand the basics of training.
A DBS is required prior to any volunteering.
Anyone looking to help with refereeing or judging on our shows should contact our Boxing Development Officer to discuss and depending on their experience, we would consider putting them on a training course.
Our website is in the process of being re-developed. We will update you as soon as this has been completed.
