Since the opening of PCYC in 1937, Boxing was one of first sports that was developed for our centres. Over the years we are still going strong with state and Olympic champions. All our boxing classes cater for all fitness levels and ages.
PCYC Boxing is dedicated to the development of athletes through the sport of boxing, offering development in physical fitness, self-discipline and confidence. Boxing classes include fitness, strength and conditioning and competitive amateur boxing.
Umina PCYC is the home gym for the NSW PCYC Boxing Academy- a team of elite junior and senior male and female boxers that are selected from across PCYC’s in NSW to represent PCYC.
Multiple NSW State, National Golden Gloves and Australian Champions at Junior and Senior Male and Female Level have been developed under the program.
All have been coached by the Director of Boxing for NSW PCYC Joel Keegan and their home coaches.
The PCYC Boxing Academy regularly travels to tournaments intrastate, interstate and overseas to develop the Team members (including trips to China and England in 2015).
