Boxing training was one of the first sports developed at PCYC in 1937, since then boxing training is still going strong with some State and Olympic champions getting their start at PCYC NSW. All boxing classes are designed for all fitness levels and ages.
PCYC boxing training classes are designed for amateur and junior athletes with these classes offering development in confidence, self-discipline and physical fitness, as well as strength, fitness and conditioning.
