Following the announcement from the First Minister earlier today, we wanted to give you an update on the upcoming Boxing Scotland Novice Championships.
At present, we still intend to hold the Championships at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility in Motherwell as scheduled next month.
Restrictions on indoor events and venues remain in place until at least January 24th, when the Scottish Government hope to be able to lift these.
With this update expected to be confirmed next Tuesday (18th January) we have, however, made the decision to extend the closing date for entries to the Novice Championships to until 5pm on Wednesday 19th January.
At present we still intend for the Championships to include all age categories, including over-18’s, restrictions allowing.
We are aware there have been restrictions for this age group in terms of sparring indoors over the festive period, which has not been ideal for preparations, although outdoor contact for this age group is now allowed with immediate effect. Version 24 allows for Adult out door Contact.
However, we are keen to give all of those who have trained hard over the past few months an opportunity to compete, with restrictions on indoor contact for over 18’s expected to be lifted later this month.
Boxing Scotland will communicate any further updates regarding the Novice Championships as we have it available.
