Become one of the 100 boxers on the DiSE programme for 2022-23

May 19, 2022 | by Matt Halfpenny


The England Boxing-endorsed Level 3 Diploma in Sporting Excellence (DiSE) qualification has been awarded 100 places for the 2022-23 academic year by Sport England.

The course supports talented and committed young athletes who have realistic potential to be high achievers by combining boxing and full-time education.

As well as having a value of 64 UCAS points, it helps give participants the skills, knowledge and competence to pursue sporting excellence and a future career away from the ring.

Open to those aged 16 to 19, you can take the DiSE course over two years alongside your school or college main study programme and is delivered by highly-qualified and experienced England Boxing coaches.
