We endeavour through the Olympic sport of amateur boxing to
promote fitness, discipline, friendship, fair play, respect and
confidence. Increase quality of life by providing a constructive
alternative to anti social behaviour such as drugs and alcohol
abuse, for the local youth living in Petone and surrounding
areas. Provide positive role models and social inclusion from
interaction with our coaching staff and other young boxers.
Welcome to the most exciting sport experience you've ever
encountered Boxing is without a doubt the most rewarding and
challenging sport available to youth today.
The combination of athleticism, physical and mental
conditioning, sportsmanship, and self worth that you will
develop from boxing are unequalled in any other sport.
Boxing will teach you to rely on yourself, to value the
input of others, and most importantly to respect both your own
skills and those of others.
You will develop a level of
self-confidence that you will carry with you for the rest of
your life, you will also find that this is one of the most
challenging things that you will ever do. So if you are looking
for a challenging, mentally stimulating, physically demanding
and just plain fun activity then you have found it.
A Note to Parents
Most people have a general impression that boxing both amateur
and professional, are very rough and somewhat brutal sport. If
they are improperly coached and supervised and equipped, then
this can generally be true.
It is the express goal of the Petone Sports & Boxing Club to
teach youngsters all the fundamentals of boxing, both offence
and defence in such a manner that makes it safe, and a fun
experience for every participant.
