after-school Boxing Programs

Bring Out the Inner Champion in Every Kid!


To provide youth with high-quality physical literacy fundamentals.  To empower kids to lead healthy and active lifestyles.  To develop students’ self-confidence through sport which they can apply to all areas of their lives. To inspire students to be the best form of themselves that they can be.


Invite Focused Fitness to your community for an after-school introduction to boxing session.  Boxing has all the components to develop complete physical literacy:

     - balance and coordination

     - developing both locomotor and non-locomotor movements
     - strength and agility
     - fast footwork
     - cardiovascular endurance
     - high-intensity bursts
     - teamwork and communication

     - respect

Kids will learn the appropriate stance and footwork, proper punching techniques, punching combinations, and defensive maneuvers, all in a safe and supervised environment.  No sparring or direct physical contact will occur. Students will develop their punching and slipping techniques through agility exercises, cooperative games and relays, individual shadow boxing, and pad work with the instructor.  

All participants will experience success and a sense of accomplishment for learning a new sport, building capacity to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle.


Cost: $15 per participant, minimum group size of 6, maximum of 22.

Location: We rent a community centre or school gym in your neighbourhood

Duration: One hour
