Kids make their de­but in the ring

Pilbara News - - Sport - Tom Zaun­mayr

The Raiders Box­ing Club hosted its first ju­nior spar­ring com­pe­ti­tion last week­end on the back of strong growth among its ju­nior ranks this year.

Raiders coach Shane McDon­ald said the box­ing com­pe­ti­tion gave the kids some­thing to work to­wards.

“You can’t just train all the time,” he said.

“This was a chance to re­ward their hard work and ef­fort.

“All the kids did very well but you can see the dif­fer­ence be­tween the kids who have just started and the ones who have been here a while.”

McDon­ald said the club would be host­ing an­other spar­ring com­pe­ti­tion at the Tam­brey soon.

Ju­nior box­ing classes are free to par­tic­i­pate in and run ev­ery Mon­day and Wednes­day evening at the Tam­brey Pav­il­ion.
