Work Hard, Have Fun, Support Eachother and Be Proud
East Brighton ABC have been running boxing camps since Summer 2019. The camps give local young people the opportunity to attend boxing sessions in the school holidays.
The sessions use the GB Boxing Awards to develop young people’s boxing skills and knowledge. The awards we deliver are Preliminary, Standard and Bronze.
Since Summer 2019 East Brighton ABC have run 3 boxing camps and will be running a Bronze Level Award in February 2020 Half-Term. As part of the camps young people created the Boxing Camp Slogan 'Work Hard, Have Fun, Support Each other and Be Proud'.
The camps are a great way to meet new friends and learn together in a supported, friendly environment.
As part of each session young people get a healthy lunch. Past sessions have included healthy Jacket Potato’s, Meatballs and Pasta, Humus with Carrot Sticks and plenty of fruit including bananas, apples, and melon.
"The boxing camp was great and the lunch’s were brilliant"
"The food was great and I would definitely do the camp again"
As part of the Boxing Camps young people get to learn about boxing and the rules of boxing. This includes learning about the target area and the correct technique for a scoring blow.
It also looks at how we keep those taking part in boxing safe, from protective equipment to being safe in and around the boxing ring. There is also a section on be safe around railways provided by British Rail.
