Funding and support for aspiring local amateur boxing talent. Teaching boxing technique while developing a resilient community.
We are a not-for-profit organisation using the art of boxing to develop Central Otago youth and add value to the wider community by developing commitment, courage and self-control in young people and support the development of champions in the sport.
Queenstown hosted the National Boxing Championships for the first time in New Zealand’s amateur boxing history in 2014. But it was only the beginning of our record breaking influence on the boxing scene.
More records were broken when Otago received the ‘Treston Challenge Shield’ at these championships for being the association with the most wins. This was a first for the Otago Association in over 55 years. In 2016 one of our athletes won amateur boxing’s highest accolade, the 'Jameson Belt' for being voted the most scientific boxer at the entire national tournament. The Jameson Belt again hadn’t been won by a Highlander in over 50 years.
We aim to continue our mission to lead by example with our scientific perspective on boxing. We want our athletes to continue their journey with an international standard of fighting and perform to their highest level possible.
We strive to stay consistent and keep developing our local talent to achieve through hard work and determination.
We are excited to continue to connect with youth to promote discipline and self-control. We believe that the skills and lessons learnt inside the ring make you a champion outside the ring.
Our boxers require funds to keep individual fees low and enable specialist testing, professional medical care, training equipment, training camps and travel expenses (national & international)
Everything has only been made possible thanks to local support and funding. Please help us to continue to offer skills and opportunity for our community.
We appreciate every bit of assistance, thank you for supporting our mission.
