The competitive team is the cornerstone of Quinit Boxing. We actively compete in clubs shows, tournaments, and at the provincial and national levels.
With a large competitive team, we have sparring opportunities for all weight classes.
We are all a team where iron sharpens iron. Sparring is a time for everyone to learn and this philosophy is heavily enforced. Come expecting a safe and welcoming sparring environment.
Accepted team members can expect weekly sparring and training. Cohorts are set up based on skill level and weight classes. Sparring cohort time slots include skill building, situational sparring, and open sparring.
We actively pursue fight opportunities for our competitive athletes. As heavily involved Boxing BC board members, we are up to date on events and news to get you matched up for bouts.
There is an application process to enter the competitive team in order to ensure those participating are able to engage in sparring safely.
Competitive team members must meet and commit to these requirements in order to be considered:
You will be evaluated based on the following:
Cohorts are grouped by weights and experience. Please ensure you can regularly attend your appropriate cohort before applying.
Cohort A: <145 lbs
Cohort B: 145-160 lbs
Cohort C: 165-175 lbs
Cohort D: 180+ lbs
Please complete all steps below.
If you are unsure if you are eligible to spar yet, please reach out.
A solid understanding of boxing fundamentals is mandatory to ensure you can properly defend yourself in the ring. Our group fitness classes are designed to progress you to sparring, if interested. Check out our 'Pathway to Competing' for more information. If you have ambitions to spar in future, please let us know so we can give you specific advice.
Once regularly sparring, head coach Jon will assess whether you are able to compete. Then we will begin to submit your names for matchmaking in bouts. QB amateur athletes compete in Boxing BC sanctioned bouts only.
Sparring is for members only unless you are part of a Boxing BC chartered club. If you are part of a Boxing BC chartered club, please have your coach reach out to us and we'd be happy to organize a day!
Professional athletes require amateur experience to be approved by the athletic commission. This often means becoming an open fighter (10 fights as an amateur athlete).
