MERLIN BOXING - OPEN DOOR UNDER 13’s / OVER 13’s
Leader Dave Randle
MERLIN OPEN DOOR BOXING
Merlin Boxing was established in 1963 and offers a safe environment for Young People from different backgrounds and various cultures to come together to improve their skills, fitness levels and also to have a lot of fun.
The Merlin Open Door Boxing (ODB) is for young people of various ages. The ODB offers an introduction to the sport of Boxing and allows members to develop a wide range of skills associated with the sport. The ODB offers much more than boxing, it inspires young people to build positive relationships with their peers, helps them to develop their well-being and encourages a healthy life-style which will increase their physical fitness and mental strength which in turn can improve their ability to focus at school, work and home.
For those members who do want to box for the club, the ODB is the first step to Boxing bouts. Many ODB members have successfully been promoted to the boxing group and gone to represent the club in competitive bouts.
All sessions are led by Merlin qualified coaches who are first aid trained and have been Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked.
The sessions delivered to the Young People will teach them the following.
- Boxing Skills
- Confidence Building
- Healthy Life-style
- Peer Coaching
- Circuit Training
- Team Games
