StartBox/ High Performance Training Workshops

Fifteen Boxing coaches from five clubs attended two workshops organised by Waterford Sports Partnership, in collaboration with I.A.B.A Munster Council. Delivered by Michael Carruth and Ed Griffin (Community Boxing Development Officers in Dublin).

Workshop one focused on the delivery of the StartBox programme into primary schools. This initiative targets young people who would not normally engage in competitive sports or activity. The workshop began with a PowerPoint presentation of the StartBox programme, followed by some drills and exercises that Michael and Ed deliver when working in the schools.

Workshop two was delivered by Zuar Antia- Head Coach of the I.A.B.A High Performance Boxing Unit. Using eight Boxers for demonstrations, Zuar delivered an excellent and formative workshop, focusing on the importance of footwork and working with the coaches throughout the session. We would like to thank all the coaches and boxers for attending the workshops and particularly Gerry O' Mahoney- I.A.B.A Munster Council President for his help in organising this event. We would also like to thank Michael Carruth, Ed Griffin and Zaur Antia for delivering fantastic and intuitive workshops.
