Cashback Coordinator Craig McEvoy visited Drumchapel High School on Friday 20th January 2012 to demonstrate a typical Amateur Boxing Academy session to Year 5 pupils during a PE session. The aim of the visit was to promote the ABS Cashback for Communities Amateur Boxing Academy throughout the school and to hopefully recruit some interested 10-19 year old young people for the local ABS clubs delivering the program.
The pupils in attendance were given a quick insight to the Academy, before being put through their paces with a typical Academy warm-up working on reaction and co-ordination. This was then followed by a series of skill demonstrations where the pupils were coached on the basics of footwork and balance, followed by some partner games to put into practice what they had been taught. The session finished off with a fun but boxing specific group game, the response from the pupils was positive and hopefully the visit will have created more interest for the Academy in the Drumchapel area.
