New boxing academy to open

Following the success of the AASE Boxing Academy at SGS College, a new developmental academy is being launched to run alongside the existing elite set-up.

All SGS students are welcome to join, from beginners to advanced. With top quality coaching on offer from former SGS AASE graduate Toby Hacker.

Toby, an England boxing coach and former national level boxer, is keen to stress that competition is not necessarily the main focus.

He comments: "Students who would like to keep fit and take part in boxercise are more than welcome.  If it’s cross training for other sports or a general interest in boxing exercise you require you’ll be welcome."

Head of Boxing Craig Turner said: "I am thrilled that we have the developmental academy in place.  It re-enforces that SGS is the top educational centre for the sport in the West of England, and a former graduate leading the project is proof positive of the programme’s success."
