The England Performance Youth European squad will head to Knock, Ireland for a four-day training camp as they continue their preparations ahead of next month’s European Championships.

All 14 members of the squad, selected following assessments last month, will make the journey to Knock, in the County Mayo region of Ireland, on Wednesday 20th March ahead of a four-day training camp.

The Three Lions will face intense training consisting of squad work, individual focuses and three days of gym bouts which will help acclimatise them to the schedule of next month’s EUBC European Championships 2024 in Porec, Croatia.

They will be joined in Ireland by lead National Coach Amanda Coulson and coaches Amanda Groarke, Andy Marksby, Phil Knight and Dave Johnston.

England will return home on Monday 25th March, ending four consecutive weekends of preparation camps.
