New Performance Pathway coaches appointed

February 6, 2023 | by Matt Halfpenny


A total of 12 coaches have been appointed as Development Coaches on the England Boxing Performance Pathway with immediate effect.

The Development Coaches will assist the existing Performance Coaches and National Coaches (Amanda Coulson and Mick Maguire) in delivering training sessions and camps.

The role is an important part of the performance pathway coaching structure, allowing boxers to receive the best coaching delivery as well as helping develop coaches throughout the pathway.

Eight more coaches have been identified as having the potential to become a future England Boxing Development Coach and will now take part in a six-month mentorship phase.

It will see them have regular online calls with existing England coaches, watch training sessions and camps being delivered and be given advice and guidance.

Should they successfully complete their mentorships, they will then become England Boxing Development Coaches.

This takes the total number of development coaches who support the Performance Pathway up to 38, with the potential of it becoming 46 upon completion of the mentorship phase.

“We’d like to congratulate all coaches who have become Development Coaches or are going to be mentored with a view to becoming one,” said England Boxing’s Head of Performance, Chris Connelly.

“The mentorships are part of England Boxing’s vision to continually develop the next generation of international coaches, as we appreciate that the development of our future Performance Coaches needs to be constant.”
