How the DiSE programme is shaping me: Bailey Green

February 20, 2021 | by Matt Halfpenny


In the third of our series featuring DiSE boxers past and present, first year student at SGS College, Bailey Green, explains how the programme and its attendees are helping to bring out the best in him.

“Whilst I have been at DiSE, I have had very tough training sessions which has tested me mentally and physically.

“These training sessions have shown me that what ever is thrown your way you can always come through it on top as long as you persevere.

“I have made many new friends and training partners who never hesitate to push me to the limit and will always motivate me to achieve my dreams.

“The coaches at DiSE are some of the best I have had. They’re always making the sessions fun and enjoyable whilst also making us train harder than we have ever before.

“We can always have a good laugh at DISE and it’s a very good opportunity to get some knowledge and better skills under your belt.”

Bailey started boxing at the age of 15 and, now aged 17, has made rapid progress.

When he finishes college, he is keen to pursue a career as a personal trainer or get into sports coaching.
