Last year, in conjunction with The Box Gathering we ran a free 10 week boxing course for girls ages 11-17.
These classes were led by a qualified female England Boxing Coach and were a unique opportunity for girls to try out the sport in a safe space. Participants had the opportunity to join our mixed amateur sessions to continue to box with us.
One of our current young boxers Abi says “Boxing has given me confidence and an escape from stress. The best thing is meeting other boxers and coaches who are always supportive and make me look forward to training.”
Boxing is a great sport to inspire, empower and build confidence. Here at Rathbone and Hawley Amateur Boxing Clubs we want to share our passion, so continue to offer girls a free trial session with our junior squad to see if they would like to explore boxing further. We regularly provide opportunities for our female boxers of all ages and pride ourselves on being a female led club.
