BOXING TRAINING IN THE HEART OF SOUTHSEA

Have you always wanted to get into boxing? A great recreational and fitness activity, boxing allows you to let loose and stay active. At the Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Academy, you can get involved in boxing training regardless of your level. Get started with boxing training at our facilities in Southsea, Portsmouth or find out more about our nationwide Boxing Awards courses. 

HOP Boxing Academy

The Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Academy was founded in September 2008. Based in the Heart of the City of Portsmouth (3 min walk from central station) it is ideally placed for what it was set up for; keeping youth off the street and engaging them in physical activity.

HOP prides itself on being a place that people of all genders, abilities, ages and fitness levels can attend to find a feeling of achievement and self worth. HOP works closely with a range of other organisations who all work hard in directing and supporting the youth of Portsmouth:
• The City Council
• Community Improvement Partnership
• Portsmouth Respect Programme
• The Motiv8 youth group

In partnership with Charter Academy

HOP Boxing Academy is in partnership with Charter Academy, formerly St Luke’s School. The new look Charter Academy is leading the way for boxing in schools across the country by putting Boxing Awards training into the academy curriculum. 

Every year group has the option to complete the GB National Boxing Awards and the year 9’s, 10’s and 11’s are able to complete the ASDAN CoPE Boxing GCSE Educational Qualification (Grade B GCSE). Charter Academy, working in partnership with the HOP Boxing Academy coaches, is the first school in the country to deliver and qualify their students with the ASDAN CoPE GCSE in Boxing. At HOP, training commences at 7am for early morning activities (EMA’s), then Charter students do boxing training in their PE lessons, GCSE qualification or the after school club. At 4pm, there are junior and senior sessions for the community. HOP is a great opportunity to get fit, lose weight, have fun and make new friends.
