We at Gateway A.B.C are always looking for ways to move the club forward. We also feel that it's important to offer our members a structured approach to training sessions and with this in mind the club decided to adopt the GB National Boxing Awards in 2014. The programme, with its definitive week to week coaching guide is the perfect tool to offer our youngsters set goals to aim for & achieve. Week to week lesson plans, along with the flexibility to move off course whenever necessary, ensure that candidates remain interested in the sport and coaching is completed in a unified manner. With six progressive awards to achieve, culminating in a no winner/no loser contest, each candidate is provided with an opportunity to develop their individual styles over a course of lessons designed to teach the skills required to compete in amateur boxing. We at Gateway A.B.C feel that by implementing the GB National Boxing Awards Programme, the club and it's youngsters are all moving in the right direction.

There are six certification levels to achieve which are summarised below. A more comprehensive breakdown of each award can be found on our GB Boxing Awards Levels page.
