Coaching

The Coach plays a significant role in amateur boxing. They are the men and women who work with the boxer in teaching the techniques and improving skills. They educate the boxer about the rules and regulations of the sport. They provide ongoing support and encouragement.

The Coach is in the athlete’s corner during the bout. All coaches must be members of the Canadian Amateur Boxing Association.

Many coaches involvement stems from personal experience as a former competitor. The continued interest comes from their love of the sport. Ongoing educational opportunities for coaching are offered by the Coaching Association of Saskatchewan and the Coaching Association of Canada.

Boxing organizations in Canada recognize these educational organizations and encourage coaches to upgrade their skills in order to provide quality coaching for boxers.
