Like any sport, youth boxing creates a daily discipline of mental and physical fitness.
The kids develop a strong sense of themselves and learn how to rely on one another in a team environment.
Boxing teaches youth the importance of creating goals, while also allowing young athletes to acquire valuable skills that can be used throughout life. Elite SFN also provides kid's after school (aftercare) boxing classes.
KIDS BOXING CLASS BEGINS @ AGE SIX
Boxers learn to respect their bodies. The more a boxer respects his body through training and proper eating, the more enjoyable the training will be. Also, young boxers quickly learn to respect other boxers in the gym who train hard alongside them.
Boxing is a difficult sport that, when practiced and improved upon, can instill a great deal of self-confidence in young individuals.
Improvements can easily be seen in novice boxers. Sparring and competing in matches allows young athletes to improve for each upcoming challenge; they begin to understand that you can’t get better without practice.
HANDLING SUCCESS & FAILURE
You win some, you lose some. Kids often get upset when things don’t go their way. Boxing allows kids to feel the triumph of winning and the disappointment of losing.
Boxing provides coaches with the opportunity to instill sportsmanship in young boxers. It’s a one-on-one sport that prevents participants from blaming teammates for their own mistakes. Young boxers learn to take responsibility for their own actions.

"Elite SFN shows children ages five and up how to throw jabs and hooks, how to bob and weave, how to jump rope and hit punching bags. But more than teaching the fundamentals of fighting, boxing programs have proved to be a useful tool for keeping at-risk youth in school, out of detention centers, and away from the gangs that infest their neighborhoods."
