Over the weekend training sessions for the national U-16and Junior Squad for the Caribbean Schoolboys and Juniors tournament set for the National Sports Hall on August 16-18, continued weekend work in the fifth week.
The Camp, which began on June 1, is at the halfway stage the end of a ten-week training period.
This past weekend training had four sessions, instead of the normal three sessions per week this is due to the closure of schools. The focus of these sessions were mainly on the technical skills (School boxing/shadow boxing) and the Lower side on endurance.
Sixteen Boxers were a part of this week camp; Abiola Jackman, Ryan Benjamin, Patrick Harvey, Malachi Jones, Jerron McKenzie, Dayne Baptist, Emmanuel Pampy, Alex Butcher, Sherlond Stephen, Mark Crawford, Richard Howard, Jaqwan Milo, Wayne Castillo, Travis Inverary, Keyshawn Fraser and Fitz Heywood.
They were put through their training sessions by Coaches; Sebert Blake, Lennox Daniels and Clive Atwell.
According to Coaches Commission Chairman, Sebert Blake, the boxers have shown a great level of interest in the work at hand and an improvement in discipline.
He recommended that the proposed equipment be supplied because we will be heading into the special preparation phase where we will be doing lots of school combat and sparring.
“GBA should encourage the other gyms to have their boxers to attend the camp. We are having the camp start Thursday afternoon so we have the boxers doing some running early Friday morning,” Coach Blake added.
He thanked the coaching team of Mr. Winston Pompey and Joseph Murray for their support at their respective gyms Young Achievers and the Forgotten Youth Foundation and the others who supporting the team behind the scene. (Sean Devers)
