We are encouraging everyone who trained at a boxing club before the onset of the Coronavirus outbreak to keep up the hard work – just to do it at home instead, where you are safe.

In order to help you, England Boxing has pulled together some of the boxing-related activities and resources from around the country that you can get involved with to stay active while observing government social distancing instructions.

Like a host of other sports, we are backing Sport England’s Join The Movement campaign which encourages to people to #StayInWorkOut.

If you are happy to share details of your club’s your daily, weekly or ad hoc activity for others to benefit during these difficult times, please email brief details and a link to matt.halfpenny@englandboxing.org

Please note, this must be related to an amateur boxing club and be a free offering. No private companies or paid-for activities will be featured.

By using these activities and resources, boxers are doing this at their own risk and must ensure they have adequate and non-slip floor space in which to participate. They must also have no health concerns.

Also listed are some articles around mental health at what is a difficult time, especially if you are having to isolate, safeguarding guidance and resources for coach learning.

Detailed towards the end of the page are some of the ways boxing clubs are helping the battle against the Coronavirus in their respective communities. Again, please send an email to the address below if you feel your club’s story is worth telling.

Finally, we have included links to our Financial Assistance for Clubs and #KOCOVID19 campaign pages.

Please Stay Home and Stay Safe.
