Youth Boxing in Calgary for Ages 8 – 15

Grizzly youth boxing classes encourage overall physical fitness, focus, reaction time, explosiveness, spatial awareness, balance, and social skills development. We highly value the significance of learning sport based fundamental movements during the formative years, and of course have a great deal of fun getting there! Our trainers emphasize the critical importance of respecting the instructor through active listening and of equal importance honouring classmates/training partners.

The Grizzly youth program now includes testing with age/gender based standards for kids to work towards while attending sessions. Tests were chosen for 3 categories: fitness, power & speed, physical literacy and flexibility. Youth sessions will have activities tailored towards those categories. Standards were created and validated by research studies on thousands of youth across Canada and the US, ensuring accurate and purposeful tests to help kids improve their confidence and competence in performing various physical activities.  The purpose of testing is to allow children to set goals, evaluate their physical activity, and stay motivated by earning achievement awards for reaching certain milestones.  Progress will be measured on a quarterly basis throughout the year.

Our Boxing Skills Based Programs are designed to introduce participants to the sport on a non-contact level giving them a fun learning environment. Safety, discipline and positive character development are of the utmost importance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be in top physical condition to get started? No, we start where you are at with your individual fitness level upon arriving and encourage gradual growth. Our group classes are designed using intensity and time as the measure. This means you will be doing the same quality exercise as your classmates but you do not need to perform the same quantity. We want to see you learning proper form at the beginning then transition to expect higher quantity as you grow in your overall fitness.

Do I require any prior martial arts, boxing or sports experience to participate? No.

What should I bring with me to class? Please wear comfortable, flexible workout wear. Indoor runners are required – no exceptions. Please bring along a full water bottle. We are no longer able to lend or share equipment due to COVID – 19 safety measures. For your initial TRIAL INTRO to Boxing you do not need any boxing equipment. If you decide to join with a membership you will need boxing gloves, jump rope and hand wraps we can assist with these items. Should you optionally pursue sparring as you develop, we would prepare you for a protective boxing equipment upgrade.
