With over 40 regular boxers attending sessions, 100 on our research database and nearing 100,000 pageviews, the Boxing Science program has really excelled over the past 15 months.

Our main social objective is to educate the boxing community of the principles of sport science. We want boxing sport science programs to be developed around the country to improve strength and fitness training at the root of boxing – junior, youth and senior amateur boxers.

So, we would like to share our five top tips in developing your own sport science program.

Step 1: Plan

Might seem pretty obvious, but to have a plan is extremely important in the early stages of developing a sport science program. What is the purpose? Who is our audience? How will we reach them and get them involved with our amazing program.

Below is a list of the stages we went through – BS stands for a Boxing Science example.

  • Define your purpose
    BS: To deliver world class sport science support to boxers
  • Audience
    BS: Amateur boxers in Sheffield
  • How will we reach them?
    BS: Taster sessions, visit the clubs, broaden your contacts
  • What is the next stage?
    BS: Weekly sessions, training clusters
  • Build your team
    BS: Sport scientists from various disciplines at Sheffield Hallam University
