I know a lad who studys cricket and gets to train with all the Lancashire team with the hope of breaking into them, sounds class. I was looking to see if there was something similar for boxing but all I found was a 15 week course in Derby on how to package boxes correctly.

However, this thread could be used as a research tool. For example, if we all have a go at devising a 'curriculum' of sorts. Then we try to put together a list of resources for each 'elective'. Then having read through the materials we could give each other ideas for essays and then post them on here.

If anyone can be botherd...

I'll have a go at a curriculum when I get a minute.

You can in Cuba and Russia get a degree as a boxing coach, or boxing specialized sports scientists. All the top coaches in Russia have to have university level degrees in coaching and there are sports specialized universities with departments of boxing.
