Box Champions


Box Champions is an intervention designed to empower young people aged 8 to 25 with the skills and inspiration needed to make positive changes in their lives. The programme combines non-contact boxing training with psychology-informed mentoring to create purposeful sessions designed to meet the individual needs of the young person.

Box Champions is delivered on a one-to one basis (or small group where appropriate) by coach/mentors with background in boxing, mental health services and education. They have participated in extensive training in Trauma, ADHD awareness , Autism , Mental Health and cognitive behaviour therapy. However their greatest asset is their extensive experience of with young people.

Throughout Box Champions, young people learn evidence-based personal development principles including how the brain works, to allow them to understand feelings they may be experiencing. This equips them with the skills to manage emotions, behaviours, and situations.

“Since she went in to care, she’s found it hard to trust adults. She will push everyone’s buttons to see how far they will go in an act of self-sabotage. But she trusts you, she knows you will be there every week and whilst she might not show it, the sessions with you are the highlight of her week."
