Final Schools Academy of 2019 this weekend

November 27, 2019 | by Matt Halfpenny


The third and final session of England Boxing’s Schools Academy takes place this Sunday (1st December) at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.

It gives England Talent an opportunity to work with all Cadet, Class A and Class B finalists (male and female) from this year’s England Boxing National Schools Championships.

In addition, this weekend’s session – which follows sessions in July and October – will also see one coach from each of the clubs invited to join in and assist with the day’s coaching.

Relevant coaches wishing to do this can just turn up on the day with their boxer but MUST bring their 2019/2020 lanyard to enable them to stay on and join in.

England Boxing Development Coach Amanda Coulson, who will be the lead coach on the day, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming the academy boxers and their club coaches back to EIS Sheffield once again to hone their skills.

“This time the focus will be on maximising opportunities at long range and working on defensive skills.”
