We are a self-funding organization run by dedicated volunteers with the aim of promoting fitness, discipline, friendship, fair play, respect and confidence increasing the quality of life for local children and adults. We aim to make boxing and fitness activities affordable to all walks of life, including local schools and other local sports organizations.
The Sturminster Newton Boxing and Fitness Club was set up in 2001 by Shaun Weeks.
We endeavour through the Olympic sport of amateur boxing to promote fitness, discipline, friendship, fair play, respect and confidence, increasing quality of life by providing a constructive alternative to anti-social behaviour such as drug and alcohol abuse for the local youth living in Dorset. We also provide positive role models and social inclusion through interaction with our coaching staff and other young boxers.
So far the boxing club has produced 26 Western Counties Champions, 10 National semi-finalists, 4 National Finalists & 1 national minors champion.
We have a full committee and currently have four qualified coaches at the club all of whom have to attend certification courses every three years to maintain the highest degree of competency at every level. They all have to be qualified in first aid and CPR and of course, CRB cleared.
We operate child safety policies and have our own child welfare officer.
The club has recently moved to a dedicated business unit split over two floors. We rely purely on grants and donations from the public, keeping the membership fees and weekly cost to a minimum. Please get in touch through our contact us page if you would like to make a donation or have any fundraising suggestions.
