After what was our most successful Novice Championships to date, we received some valuable and constructive feedback from our member clubs. With that in mind we set about how to improve the experience for Clubs, Boxers and spectators. These changes will take immediate effect and will be put to the test at the National Intermediate Championships being held on 25/26 January and 1 February inclusive. Please note 1 February is an overspill day and may not be used.
We will conduct the draw early so that clubs, boxers and spectators can arrange travel, accommodation and plan ahead. In order to do this, we have taken away the ability for boxers to Double Enter and only Single Entries will be accepted. This means that a boxer will only be entered at the weight indicated on the entry form and there will be NO CHANGES.
This means that we are in line with our current National Performance Programme. It is the responsibility of the boxer and the coach to manage weight and expectations around competition entries.
We have made changes to the weigh in process, boxers will only have to weigh in on the day they are boxing.
In order to give the boxer and coach time to prepare, we are committed to have the completed draw for the National Intermediate Championships posted on our website and social media platforms on the Wednesday before the championship weekend at the very latest.
The entry fee covers the boxer’s entry into the championship on the day they box, should they wish to spectate and support their teammates on a day where they are not scheduled to box there will be a concession fee of £5.00 per entry, per day.
