Schools Academy is back!

October 1, 2019 | by Matt Halfpenny


The second round of England Boxing’s Schools Academy takes place this Sunday (6th October) 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 a successful first session in July – will also see one coach from each of the clubs invited to join in and assist with the day’s coaching. 

However, those coaches will first need to register by contacting England Boxing Development Coach Amanda via and MUST also bring their 2019-2020 lanyard.

“Session one back in July was a brilliant day which was well attended,” said Coulson.  “We are extremely excited to welcome this group of budding boxers back to Sheffield to work with the England coaches alongside some of the club coaches who have expressed an interest of being part of this academy and helping with the delivery on the day.”

Q Shillingford will be the lead coach on the day.
