We are now able to confirm more details regarding the 2023-24 Boxing Scotland School & Junior Golden Gloves Championships.
An administrative document has been produced and we would advise clubs to familiarise themselves with it ahead of the Championships getting underway.
The Championships will be held at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility, Motherwell on the weekends of Saturday 24th/Sunday 25th February and Saturday 2nd March.
Please note, the previously advertised date of Sunday 3rd March will not be used for this competition.
A link to the document can be found at the bottom of this post.
Some of the key information from the document includes;
Boxer Weigh-in times; (Boxers only weigh-in on days that they compete)
Saturday and Sunday: 0800 – 1000. Boxing will commence at 1100.
Please note, there will be NO weight allowance for all boxers for Golden Gloves/Open Class competitions from this season forward, including this tournament.
Additionally, Under-18 boxers do not need to weigh-in wearing a vest/shorts as they did last season.
Adult: 1 Day – £20, 2 Day – £35.
Children Under-16: 1 Day – £10, 2 Day – £15.
All coaches in the field of play and warm-up areas must be a registered 2023/24 Boxing Scotland coach.
Where a club is found to have bypassed these procedures by allowing unregistered coaches into the team warm up areas or access to the field of play the offending club will be fined £100 for their actions.
The Coach Band process will follow the same rules as the previous Championships ie the number of Coach Bands allocated to clubs on each day of the competition will be based on the number of Boxers that club has competing on that day, as well as the number of Boxing Scotland Registered Coaches your club has.
All personnel can only carry out a single role from the start of the competition. E.g., if you are a boxer in the competition, you are not permitted to perform any other role such as coach or official and vice versa. Breaches of this rule will mean that the individual will be asked to leave the field of play and will not be permitted to have any further involvement in the competition.
False declaration of previous combat experience;
Following incidents at previous Championships and clubs bringing information to our attention regarding boxers, where a boxer has entered the competition and is found to have knowingly made a false declaration to Boxing Scotland regarding previous combat experience on their SME1 the consequences will be a 6-month suspension from competition and a £50 fine.
We intend for bouts for these Championships to be live streamed on the Boxing Scotland Official YouTube channel. If there are technical issues in the venue, the bouts may be recorded and published at a later date instead.
