Young Champions Boot Camp- Preliminary Awards 1

Congratulations to all members of the Young Champions Boot Camp in Greenwich on passing their GB Boxing Awards ‘Preliminary’ Assessment.

Congratulations to the eight young carers in Greenwich who completed their Preliminary Boxing Awards as part of the Young Champions Boot Camp powered by Champions 4 Change and St Peter’s Amateur Boxing Club www.stpetersabc.com

The Young Champions Boot Camp is the brainchild of Scott O’Connor who set up the YCBC in partnership with Royal Borough of Greenwich and St Peter’s Amateur Boxing Club in Charlton.

“I set up the YCBC to give young carers a safe environment to get active, make friends, build self confidence/ self esteem and manage their emotions in a positive way”

Scott started working with working with young carers in Greenwich over 6 years ago and quickly realised that he could use his boxing skills to help the community.  “In my own life, I have always used boxing as a tool for positive change to maintain a healthy mental and physical wellbeing.  I knew I wanted to teach young carers how to do the same”.  He approached the Early Help Children’s Services at Royal Borough of Greenwich who were delighted to support Scott and encouraged him to set up and run this service.

In order to provide a structured and certified programme, Scott did the GB Boxing Tutor Course  http://boxingawards.co.uk/course-dates/ .  “As soon as I read about this course, I instantly knew that Q Shillingford’s course was the perfect structure to introduce to the Young Champions Boot Camp.  The group loved it because the course is ASDAN recognised and it can on their CV and may help becoming more employable in the future”

The group were over joyed in getting the certificates and they have all signed up to start the Standard Award within the next few weeks. One young carer has plans to book onto the Boxing Tutor course and is inspired to become a coach and help other young carers , the same way Scott has helped him.

“Amazing results for the eight young carers and thank you to Boxing Awards, Royal Borough of Greenwich and St Peter’s ABC for their support”
