Are there plans to take them to international level , to become Pro or just teach them about life.
Grange Amateur Club has a beginners program that gives kids and first timers a good start and focuses on strong basics. From there they can progress into the amateur classes. Beginners a encouraged and focused on as much as any fighter.
The amateur classes have a good mix of fighters and non-fighters. Everyone trains together, there is a strong sense of team, and there is no "me" syndrome. Ages range from 12-40. A big part of the fighters group is aged 13-22, and 10-12 amateur fighters are active at any one time.
We welcome other clubs to train with us, and we have regular sparring on tuesdays, as well as arranged sparring with other gyms. Daniel and Zeb look after these boys really well, giving them a solid platform to establish a career in boxing.
