The aim of the Boxercise for Kids course is to help existing instructors learn about kid's fitness and how to adapt what has been taught on the Boxercise course to make it safe and fun for children. The course explains the many adaptations necessary to teach a Boxercise Class to children, or to integrate children into your class. On the course instructors gain information on child protection considerations, children's anatomy and physiology, class adaptations for different Key Stages and most importantly how to make it FUN! with Boxercise Games. Most Adults also enjoy the fun element of the games too, allowing both to work together in the same class with a suitably trained Boxercise Instructor.
The course is available as an online course or as a 1day 'live' training course. The content is the same on both the courses and those that pass the online course can attend the Boxercise for kids live course free of charge as a refresher and those that attend the training course will still have access to the online resource.
To access the Boxercise for Kids course you must first pass the Boxercise course.
THE ONLINE BOXERCISE FOR KIDS COURSE AND 1 DAY LIVE TRAINING COURSE HAVE THE SAME COURSE CONTENT
Through out the course child specific Boxercise games and warm up/ cool down ideas are provided. The online course resource also provides an extensive video library of further ideas.
As with all our other courses the Boxercise Instructor course is the foundation course that must be taken before any other, even though this course is based around teaching adults, the punches, padholding, coaching and safety requirements that are taught are all applicable for teaching adult and kids.
The Boxercise for Kids course then covers kids games, warm up ideas and fun tasks together with learning about kids fitness requirements, legalities of teaching kids, anatomy and physiology of growth, injuries and boxing equipment. We therefore recommend instructors take both the Boxercise and Boxercise Kids course before teaching children.
Yet for instructors that already have a recognised kids fitness qualification e.g PE teachers and who are able to adapt what has been taught on the Boxercise course to make it safe for kids then they together with their insurance company’s requirements can decide whether it is essential for them to take the Kids Boxercise course too or not.
No previous boxing experience is required as the course is taught from a beginners point of view. However all attendees require a minimum of a level 2 in fitness/coaching, sports related degree e.g PE teachers. Primary school teachers whose qualification incorporates PE are also eligible to attend the course.
The Kids Boxercise Course was the best thing I’d done. After coaching football teams for many years, I took a change of direction and not looked back since. Love being able to teach and educate the future the Boxercise fitness ways.

This year I have done my Kids Boxercise Course and Advanced Skills Boxercise Course. The content of both courses is excellent and has really helped me improve my coaching and expand my business. I did the kids course online and I thought the content was amazing! Thanks again Andy and Boxercise for some top training!

The kids Boxercise course gave me insight into delivering fun and engaging sessions and was the foundation to me starting my company. Now 6 years on it's still a huge part of my growing business and still recommend that course to anyone working with young people.

I am a disabled instructor and was looking for something I could teach to both disabled & non disabled people ESP as I work in a mainstream school advising on how to adapt the PE to include our 20 physically impaired students!
I love seeing all of my students achieve something and seeing them with a smile on there faces! Many have profound disabilities in wheelchairs and seeing them enjoy themselves hitting the pads is the best feeling going!
