BOXING COACH COURSE
The Red Corner Gym is Coventry’s Award Winning Premier boxing gym. Since it opened it’s doors seven years ago the gym has enjoyed continued success as a family gym, winning awards for it’s continued input into the surrounding community. The gym has a predominant focus on boxing, with both amateur and professional boxers training here.
The Red Corner Team is lead by professional boxing coach and owner of the gym, Glenn Smith. Glenn boxed himself in his earlier years and once his boxing career was over he had a strong passion to help other people, young and old, and train them in the art of boxing technic. He also wanted to work alongside schools, youth clubs and colleges. Particularly schools for children that were excluded from mainstream schools because they misbehaved and the schools helped to encourage anti-bullying, anger management problems, confidence, team-work and healthy eating and stress release.
THE COURSE WITHIN SCHOOLS & COLLEGES
We are currently working with a number of organisations, such as All About Addicts, where we are helping former addicts (of drugs, drink and gambling) get back into shape and help them form healthy eating behaviours. Replacing bad habits with good ones. We also work with Railway Awareness, where the Red Corner team work alongside other organisations, entertaining and helping out while the Railway Awareness team discuss with children the dangers of playing on the railway tracks. Red Corner also works with large organisations such as Connexions, and colleges and schools throughout Coventry.
Our vision is to take our Boxing Coach Course into schools and coach young people in the art and technique of boxing. The course will benefit any student with an interest and passion for a future career within the fitness industry. The students will gain an insight as to what it’s like to become a fitness trainer, the organization skills needed and the technical requirements that are placed upon boxing coaches.
SO…WHAT WILL THEY GAIN FROM THE COURSE?
After completion of the course, the students will gain a RedCorner Boxing Coach Course Certificate, which is REP’s accredited and endorsed by SkillsActive.
They will also receive a copy of our concise, copyrighted instructor manual, enabling reference to all topics taught on the course.
The course is physically demanding and will require all students’ full commitment.
HOW LONG IS THE COURSE?
WHERE IS IT?
The course has been specifically designed to be able to be taken into any school/ college or youth club in and around the West midlands area. We have an experienced team already working in many schools and colleges within the Coventry area. For information about current booked venues please visit our homepage.
Here’s what some schools & college’s have had to say about our previous work:
“Boxing is a sport which requires good technique, work ethic, commitment and discipline, this philosophy is not only displayed when Glenn coaches young aspiring boxers but also in life and his workplace, he installs discipline and respect to the young people he works with. This only helps the young people to develop a character and a work ethic required to succeed in employment and in life.” – Daniel Elliot, Henley College, Coventry
“Red Corner Gym itself is an excellent facility. The ethos of the gym is to support one another and Glenn prides himself on the support he not only gives to the users of the gym but also the students Ernesford Grange sends to the gym. While being supervised by Glenn himself our students are encouraged by Red Corner Gym’s excellent coach, and teaching staff to learn as much as they can about a variety of fitness and personal health, combined with coaching and teaching, as well as the day to day running of an effective and efficient gym.” – Tyson Lane, Ernesford Grange Community School, Coventry
