Finalised 2017 Novice Championship Entries
Dear Boxers, Coaches, Members
Thanks to you all for your comments following publication of the draft 2017 Novice Championship entries.
These have been taken on board and the changes made – we are officially looking at our biggest ever Novice Championships & up more than 100 entries than ever before – Our thanks once to again to everyone for their ongoing support of the event.
The finalised entries can viewed via the link below:
As highlighted before each Novice championship, everyone is aware that our primary concern is the welfare, health and safety of all boxers.
At this stage in years gone by, we have unfortunately discovered individuals entering our Novice Championships who have not fully disclosed the extent of their previous competitive boxing /physical combat sport experience on their entry forms. This has resulted in their disqualification from the competition.
Therefore, I am pleased to report that there have been no such occurences to date ahead of this year’s championships and those clubs confirming their boxers previous combat sport experience must be commended.
However, should any boxer be found to not have fully disclosed their previous combat sport experience, both pre and during the 2017 Novice Championships, they will be removed from the tournament with immediate effect.
A reminder to all boxers, coaches and supporters – Initial weigh-ins and medicals take place from 8:00am to 10:30am on Saturday 21 October 2017. We will endeavour to commence boxing as close to 12:30pm but this is more likely to be 1:00pm due to the sheer size of entries and the time it will take to finalise the draw.
Further logistical details will be posted in coming days with regards to our 2017 Novice Championships.
