England Boxing Championships Subcommittee Members
Salary: Expenses Paid
Location: England Institute of Sport Yorkshire
England Boxing is the National Governing Body for the one of the oldest sports in the world, one which has featured in the ancient and modern Olympic Games since 1904.
With its own heritage going back to the 1880s, including the first national competition in 1881, the organisation is responsible for promoting and developing the sport at all levels, from grass roots through to the England talent pathway and, in turn, passing prospective medallists on to GB Boxing. The organisation is a member of AIBA and EUBC, the World and European governing bodies respectively.
Clearly stated ambitions in England Boxing’s new strategy include the provision of enhanced support to the membership, in particular the unlocking of potential and as a result the delivery of appropriate competitions and events from entry through to elite levels for all of England Boxings membership.
The national competitions and specifically the finals need to reflect their proud heritage, be safely, successfully and efficiently delivered, be commercially viable and reflect they are producing the Champion boxers of England.
In order to achieve this, England Boxing is seeking to recruit volunteers to the Championships Subcommittee who have the appropriate skills, knowledge and experience combined with ambitions to support and drive the delivery of our national championships, associated competitions and events.
