England Boxing is looking forward to welcoming Youth and Elite boxers from all over the country for the third instalment of the Women’s Aspire Programme this Sunday (26th June), between 12.30pm and 4.30pm.

Those who will be there – with a number of coaches also in attendance to support the boxers – have been invited to do so by their respective regions and will convene at the English Institute of Sport (EIS) in Sheffield.

If you are attending, please read the following information on how to prepare for the day.
