Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a member of the Fredericton Boxing Club?
Stop by the club on a training night, or contact us.
What do I need to bring?
Just bring whatever you like to work out in, shorts, T-shirt and clean sneakers are fine. Hand wraps and bag gloves may be on your shopping list later but don't spend too much money until you know boxing is right for you. Also, be sure to bring lots of water to prevent dehydration during the class.
How do I become a competitive boxer?
Becoming a boxer takes a lot of hard work and determination, and even then some never compete. Most people who work hard to learn the skills and to get into great shape can expect to be ready to compete, usually before they have been training for one year. Becoming a competitor you must spar for at least a couple of months and prior to sparring you must be registered with Boxing Canada and have a medical form completed by your doctor. Boxers will only be allowed to compete when the coaches feel you are ready.
Are there many competitions?
Competitors travel between fifteen and twenty times per year to compete in various events throughout Canada as well as International tournaments in places such as Ireland and Madagascar. Generally only more experienced boxers compete at National and International tournaments but novice boxers can travel around the Maritimes several times per year.
