Boxers who win titles at the England Boxing National Youth Championships 2021 will be invited to an England Talent Youth Champions Day, it can be confirmed.
It will take place for Male and Female boxers on Sunday 12th December at West Ham Boxing Club (E13 0DN).
Winners will receive a formal invitation, in recognition of their success, to attend one of the sessions.
Both male and female sessions will run from 11am to 4pm and it should be noted that these days apply only to the open class and not development boxers.
Any boxers who are a sole entry at their weight will also be invited to Champions Day.
The Champions Days will be led by the England Talent coaching team and will include a welcome, practical boxing training, including sparring, and educational elements.
England Development Coach Amanda Coulson said: “As with the Schools and Junior boxers, while we are unable to offer the chance to formally be on the England Talent Pathway this year, because of the issues caused by Covid-19, we are delighted that we can provide this alternative opportunity.
“It will give National Youth Championship winners in open categories a taste of what it is like to be on the pathway and what it involves ahead of the expectation that the Talent Pathway will be back in place in full in 2022.”
Further information about the Youth Champions Days will be given to winning boxers at the England Boxing National Youth Championships 2021.
