Boxing sessions for Young People in Lichfield

A British boxing champion’s academy will be giving young people across Lichfield free boxing lessons from Friday 20 May 2016.
Positive Futures, which provides sporting and leisure opportunities for young people across Burntwood and Lichfield, is launching weekly boxing sessions, thanks to a grant awarded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Proceeds of Crime Fund.
The sessions will take place at Wade Street Church in Lichfield on Friday evenings, from 7.45pm to 8.45pm, starting on 20 May. They will be run by World Middleweight and British Boxing Champion Wayne ‘Mad Dog’ Elcock’s Box Clever Coaching Academy.
There is no need to book, if you are aged between 14 and 19, simply turn up and try out boxing. The sessions are free, however, they may go up to £1 in the future.
Positive Futures is hosted and funded by Lichfield District Council. It is also funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and Lichfield District Safer Community Partnership through the Locality Deal Fund.
