Case Study: Craig
Craig first attended our club through the Summer Boxing Camp throughout July and August 2019. He was referred to us as a young person dealing with complex issues. At first, Craig struggled with social interaction with staff and other camp members. As the days progressed, he slowly became more confident and vocal, expressing his joyfulness for boxing to the coaches leading the programme. His social skills improved; he learned the skill of pad work working with other participants from the camp. Craig became one of our most popular members, who attended 19 out of 20 sessions during the programme.
Craig stated ‘’I think I would be out hanging on the streets with my friends during summer if it wasn’t for Pat Benson’s’’.
From this, Craig is now a full-time member of Pat Benson Boxing academy, who has just passed his medical which will allow him to spar and progress further into the sport of boxing.
