Boxing for young people in Warwick!



Support Sport are organising boxing lessons for young people aged between 13 & 19 at The Gap Centre, Oakwood Drive, Warwick.

The idea of the project is to keep young people off the streets, giving them the opportunities that they need to build discipline, values and skills and apply it to their lives outside of the ring.

Director Joe Graham said:

"We ran a project for local young people to become young sports leaders, which was brilliant for the young people involved and some of them have made life changing progress since the beginning of the project, however, this doesn't suit everyone, and i feel that boxing could really help some of our youth channel some of their issues and learn to control some of their aggression. Whats brilliant about it is some of the leaders that attended our first project and begun the changing process, will be mentors on this programme."

Allthough the opportunity is open to the wider community, we are prioritising people within these age brackets from Percy, Woodloes and Packmores estates. The first session will take place this Friday 2nd March @ The GAP Centre, Oakwood Drive, Warwick. The project will then run each friday, plus some midweek days.
