Lennox Lewis at Ces
Leeds will be the home of a new boxing academy, opening this week in the Yorkshire city and to be fronted by Britains former undisputed heavyweight world champion Lennox Lewis.
Lewis, an Olympic gold medallist and world champion was seen as the perfect figurehead for the new initiative.
It will help young people aged 12 to 16-years-old who are not in education, employment or training
As well as boxing training, the academy will provide them with education, training and a qualification.
The 12-week programme will introduce young people to boxing techniques, coaching methods, physical fitness and nutrition leading to a professional qualification that means they can coach future courses.
Professional boxer Patrick Maxwell will be working as part of the academy team where those completing the course will receive a None Contact Preliminary Award ASDAN Sports and Fitness Award.
Former world heavyweight champion Lewis is happy to be fronting the project:
“I am proud to give my name to the Lennox Lewis Positive Futures Leeds project. It’s a fantastic to be associated with the scheme as I believe sport has a huge role to play in developing young people socially.”
Positive Futures is a national sports and activities-based social inclusion programme for young people aged between 9 and 19.
The Positive Futures Programme started in 2000 and was officially launched in 2001. There are 118 Positive Futures projects in total across England and Wales.
Sessions are free and start on Friday 24 September 2010, running every Friday for 12 weeks from 9.30am to 11am at Leeds Martial Arts Centre, 2 Grant Avenue, Sheepscar.
