Our Parx Boxing Club for junior members is for children aged from 4 to 16 and the classes are divided into 3 age groups. It teaches children the art and science of pugilism, focussing on self-confidence, discipline, fitness and hand-eye co-ordination. This well-respected and modern sporting activity is fun, highly enjoyable and welcomes children of all abilities.
With hard work and dedication, who knows... we might find the hidden talent and secret prospects within your children.
The Box London presents GB Boxing Awards to The Park Club!
The Awards are an introduction to the sport of amateur boxing as a game of skill, discipline, respect and self-control. It teaches the importance of a healthy lifestyle and has been designed as a fun recreational programme for all participants at all levels, ages and abilities.
Recently, on Thursday 21st July - 10 students had successfully passed and obtained the Preliminary Award.
• Preliminary Award
• Standard Award
• Bronze Award
• Silver Award
• Gold Award
• Platinum Award
The first 3 Awards (Preliminary, Standard and Bronze) are all non-contact and can be used in Boxing Clubs for new members and also any non-specialist facility such as a community hall or school gym. The non-contact part of the awards may be taught by stand-alone GB Boxing Tutor (School Teacher, Youth worker, Sports Development Officers). As these cover the basics of boxing.
The remaining 3 Awards (Silver, Gold and Platinum) Awards involve technique development in modified conditioned sparring and need to be coached in a boxing club with a boxing ring and qualified ABA coach.
Now with the GB National Boxing Awards we will have the opportunity to pass on the benefits from amateur boxing training without the hurting or being hurt and to provide a healthy channel for youthful energy and natural aggression.
The GB National Boxing Awards provides all participants the opportunity not only to learn a new activity/sport but also develop educationally, as the ABA National Boxing Awards gain credits towards the ABA of England National Boxing Educational Qualification (ASDAN Certificate of Personnel Effectiveness CoPE level 2 which is equivalent to GCSE Grade B).
The GB National Boxing Awards are very flexible and can be delivered in a after school club, term time, PE Curriculum time, and extended schools package (governments 5 hour offer) or is ideal for a School Holiday Programme.
Remember… “Don’t think you can, know you can”
