Boxing Leader Course Information


The Boxing Leader Programme
The first steps in the pathway to becoming a boxing coach

The Boxing Leader course is a non-contact Olympic-style boxing programme. It is delivered over one day and is the recognised first step onto the pathway to becoming a boxing coach.

This innovative course addresses all basic levels required to achieve a successful course outcome and does not demand previous experience.

Within Schools:

The Boxing Leader course is ideal for student and teacher alike and importantly, teachers who qualify are then authorised, registered and insured to deliver the Contender Am-Box programme to their students both as a curricular or non-curricular activity.

School students who complete the course can be considered to assist the teacher in his / her delivery of the Contender Am-Box programme this in itself, provides an innovative way of engaging students constructively in assisting both the teacher and their peer-group alike.

Any coaches with a Level 2 qualification in another sport who qualifies at this course may freely deliver the Contender Am-Box programme in any setting.


The cost of the course is £95 which covers all course resources and a year of ALL the benefits listed below. In comparison to other sport based courses which are recognised by their National Governing Body, this course cannot be beaten for cost or benefits.
