Boxing Officer

Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council in partnership with the IABA and the Department of Health & Children have appointed five ‘Boxing in the Community’ Officers to work in Dublin City Council’s five administrative areas.

The initiative has been created to build on the recent successes of boxing on the international stage and the keen interest young people are showing in the sport.

The main aim is to place boxing officers at the heart of communities to

  • Increase participation in boxing
  • Support the development of local clubs and expert coaching
  • Engage marginalised young people in positive activities and channel their energies into sport
  • Identify young talented athletes from Dublin’s urban localities
