Hull College has officially launched a brand new elite boxing academy in partnership with the Luke Campbell Foundation. From September 2015, students will have the opportunity to specialise in Boxing as part of a Level 2 Sports Studies programme with the College.
Based within the Learning Zone at KC Stadium, students will spend two half-days per week with the Luke Campbell Boxing Academy, receiving elite coaching and benefitting from the wealth of expertise within the Foundation.
Luke said: “Inspiring and motivating young people is really important to me. I want to pass on my experiences to youngsters and help grow the next generation of talent in the city. I still have goals that I want to achieve and I’m working hard to reach them – I think it’s vital that young people develop their ambition to achieve and build their confidence in the process”.
The partnership represents an innovative new educational model whereby young people with sporting ambitions can be supported with high quality academic teaching alongside their studies in Sport.
Hull College Principal Graham Towse said: “This is a fantastic opportunity, not only for the College to work with Luke, but for young people to learn from the passion that Luke brings to the Foundation. It really is a once in a lifetime chance and I’m looking forward to seeing the next generation of Hull born and bred talent emerging as a result of this programme”.
