Our programme is based on weekly sporting and educational initiatives, centred on the sport of amateur boxing, in a strictly non-contact format.  

We use the same protocols that an amateur boxer would take whilst training, with the total exception of any kind of sparring.


Our sessions are operated weekly over 39 (term time) weeks for anyone aged 7 - 15 years of age. The sessions are conducted by some of the very best coaches in the country, all of whom are fully qualified and experienced and hold Enhanced DBS clearance, as well as First Aid certificates.


Each session lasts 1 hour and instils discipline, respect, perseverance, fair-play and fitness, within a safe and controlled environment. 

All sessions comprise of 45 minutes of physical activity, combined with 15 minutes of educational content.

Every regular attendee able to take part in our award assessment - giving them a real sense of achievement.
