Welcome to Boxing ACT – the home of Olympic Boxing in the Australian Capital Territory, seat of Australia’s national capital Canberra.
Boxing ACT was established in 1999 and became an affiliate of the national body, Boxing Australia Inc, in 2002.
Boxing ACT has full responsibility for all amateur boxing matters in the Capital Territory, including the training and accreditation of amateur boxing coaches, judges and referees, the registration of boxers, coaches and officials, and enforcement of strict safety standards in the sport.
Regular local tournaments are featured around the Canberra region, as well as an annual ACT Titles, which allows Boxing ACT to send an ACT team to the Australian Championships each year, and to major events such as the Arafura Games.
In its short history, Boxing ACT athletes have won gold and silver medals at every Australian Championships in which the region has been represented and local boxers have been part of the Australian team at the 2002 Commonwealth Games, the 2004 Olympic Games, the 2006 Commonwealth Games, the 2008 Olympic Games and the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
Several boxers have also won gold medals at Oceania Titles.
Boxing ACT is affiliated with Boxing Australia Inc., the ACT Olympic Council, and ACTSPORT and acknowledges the support received from the organisation’s sponsors.
