Right Stuff – Boxing
The Right Stuff Boxing
The Right Stuff ABC (Amateur Boxing Club) was opened in July 2009 in response to requests from local young people and Stafford residents to have a project to engage young people and tackle youth crime and anti-social behaviour.
Around 75 to 100 young people attend the club each week. The club has a boxing ring as well as punch bags and is well equipped with a variety of fitness equipment. It also has a good inventory of equipment to carry out community projects, such as litter picking and gardening etc.
The club is fully registered with the National Governing Body England Staffordshire. The project has 3 Full England Boxing Coaches and numerous Boxing Tutors/ Young Leaders.
The club has strong links with the local Policing Team and also with the British Army particularly the 22 Signal Regiment based at Beacon Barracks. Young people from the club attend army community exercise days at the barracks several times a year.
The Right Stuff ABC has carried out numerous community projects and raised thousands of pounds for charity. It has also produced two Staffordshire Boxing Champions and Stafford’s only ever competitive female boxer.
