Youth Boxing in Calgary for Ages 8 – 15

Grizzly Cage youth boxing classes encourage overall physical fitness, focus, reaction time, explosiveness, spatial awareness, balance, and social skills development. We highly value the significance of learning sport based fundamental movements during the formative years, and of course have a great deal of fun getting there! Our trainers emphasize the critical importance of respecting the instructor through active listening and of equal importance honouring classmates/training partners.

The Grizzly Cage youth program now includes testing with age/gender based standards for kids to work towards while attending sessions. Tests were chosen for 3 categories: fitness, power & speed, physical literacy and flexibility. Youth sessions will have activities tailored towards those categories. Standards were created and validated by research studies on thousands of youth across Canada and the US, ensuring accurate and purposeful tests to help kids improve their confidence and competence in performing various physical activities.  The purpose of testing is to allow children to set goals, evaluate their physical activity, and stay motivated by earning prizes for reaching certain milestones.  Progress will be measured on a quarterly basis throughout the year.

Our Boxing Skills Based Programs are designed to introduce participants to the sport on a non-contact level giving them a fun learning environment. Safety, discipline and positive character development are of the utmost importance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I require any prior martial arts, boxing or sports experience to participate?  No

What should I bring with me to class?  Please wear comfortable flexible workout wear, indoor runners are required – no exceptions.  Please bring along a full water bottle.  We are no longer able to lend or share equipment due to COVID – 19 safety measures.  If you join you will need boxing gloves, jump rope and hand wraps we can assist with these items.  Should you pursue sparring as you develop, at that time we would prepare you for a protective equipment upgrade.  Some people practice skills mastery and take in the fitness advantages but have no desire to spar or to compete, it is up to each individual and there is no pressure.

Is there free parking?  Yes

Are there locker rooms?  Yes, BUT with COVID – 19 safety measures implemented unfortunately the locker rooms are closed to participants temporarily.  PLEASE arrive in your workout wear or you may use one of the washrooms.
