PCYC partners Wangara Boxing Club to provide free boxing lessons

December 28, 2017 by  

A partnership between the WA police and Community Youth Centres (PCYC) and Nashy’s Boxing Club has given the young people in Wangara a chance to learn boxing for free. This partnership, with the main objective of keeping youth away from crime, was part of the WA PCYC North West Metropolitan Region program.

The free boxing lessons were given to young people between the ages of 12 and 17. Classes were held at the Prindiville Drive club each Friday at 3.30pm.

The boxing lessons were aimed at teaching the participants self-esteem, self-control and discipline. Another aim was to help young people explore the advantages of boxing.

Sean Nash, club owner of Nashy’s Boxing Club, said free boxing lessons are an excellent way for keeping young people busy after their school hours. He wishes the club can serve as a centre for high-risk youngsters, while also providing a venue for youth workers to come by to provide their services.

PCYC is a non-for-profit organisation who carry out developmental and recreational programs for the benefit of young people. Members of clubs such as this often carry out poster printing and display them to promote their diverse activities, especially during school holidays when young people have an abundance of free time.
