The 2018 Scottish Boxing season is upon us and the our biggest Scottish Boxing championship – the BSL Novice Championships – are first on the national tournament calendar.
The 2018 Scottish Novice Boxing Championships will take place over the weekends of 20 – 21 and 27-28 October 2018 in the World Class Ravenscraig Regional Sports Centre.
Specifically designed for Novice boxers with 0-6 bouts experience, this particular championship is where our progressive athlete pathway begins for all our boxers in terms of Scottish Championship experience. What better way to gain this than to do it in a tournament that set a new record last year attracting over 520 boxers and in excess of 200 bouts contested. This is the tournament in which the dreams and journey of future Scottish Boxing heroes begin.
We are always extremely keen to ensure all our Novice boxers have a fantastic experience during this tournament, but understand they may not always get a get a bout.
As a result, and in line with last years’s event, the 2007 and 2006 School age groups have been amalgamated into a category (B) as have the the 2005 and 2004 School age groups into a category (A).
Please note that BSL reserves the right to combine Youth female years of birth in order to encourage competitive bouts. This will be carried out in discussion with the relevant coaches/boxers involved before doing so.
Entry forms can be downloaded by clicking on the following link:
We wish to avoid having to remove any boxer from this year’s event because of undisclosed individual physical combat sport experience. As a result, the BSL individual physical combat guidance document is also attached to the 2018 Novice Entry Forms for information.
For the avoidance of doubt, Boxers proven not to have fully or truthfully disclosed previous Individual Physical Combat Sport experience can and will be withdrawn from the tournament at any time.
Only registered Boxers with a maximum of six (6) competitive bouts experience and no more than three (3) recorded Exhibition bouts can enter the BSL Novice Championships in line with the BSL Club & Domestic Guidelines. Entries will be accepted up to 5pm on Friday 05 October 2018.
