Open Talent Day for England Boxing Talent Programme

March 28, 2018 | by Gemma Field

The England Boxing Talent Programme is hosting an Open Talent Day (OTD) for Junior male and female boxers on Saturday 7th April 2018, following the conclusion of the National Championships.

The OTDs are designed to identify talented boxers that may not have been scouted during these national championships, with talented boxers possibly meeting in the early stages of the competition or unable to enter due to injury. This is the third year OTDs have been run by the Talent pathway, having identified a number of boxers that have gone on to compete internationally through this route.

Each boxer will be assessed on technical and tactical skills, using a rating system, and will receive feedback from the England Boxing coaches. Boxers will have the opportunity to spar and train alongside Talent Pathway boxers, allowing England coaches and the boxers to gauge what level they are at in relation to the international circuit.

Boxers who meet the required assessment levels will be invited on to the England Talent Programme.

Registration is open until 12.00pm on Wednesday 4th April 2018. No late entries will be considered.
