The Level 1 Coaching Refresher Training is for all Level 1 Coaches who have completed their Level 1 more than three years ago.

This ensures that England Boxing-affiliated coaches’ training remains relevant and up to date.

Proposed coaching courses restart

England Boxing hopes to restart face-to-face coaching courses from early June, subject to the easing of lockdown continuing as per the government roadmap.

Coaching courses are restarting later than safeguarding courses because the practical, contact elements in these courses (which safeguarding does not have) are currently not permitted under Covid-19 legislation among adult groups.

Details of dates are expected to be released on the website and advertised on social media at the end of April, but will remain subject to government go-ahead.

Can I still coach as a Level 1 Coach without completing the Level 1 Coaching Refresher Training?

There is a period of amnesty within the 2019-2020 season, during which all Level 1 Coaches that require a refresher are to complete the training.

Following this period, and prior to the new season, any coach that is out of the 3 year cycle, will not be allowed a lanyard until they have completed the mandated training.

When Level 1 Coaches need to complete refresher training by

During the amnesty period the Level 1 Coach should complete refresher training within 6 months prior his or her 3 year expiry and 3 months following the expiry.

Following this period, all Level 1 Coaches are to keep their training up to date.  The Refresher training lasts for 3 years.
