Boxing

Total investment 2015-16: $904,000 (high performance: $850,000; participation $54,000)

ASC funding as a percentage of total income: 84% 

Boxing’s high performance program is rated as progressing. Competition results for key female athletes were strong in 2015 however performances at the 2015 men’s world championships were below target.

In 2015 there has been further engagement of the Boxing Australia national coaches who largely operate in decentralised training environments, to successfully integrate them with AIS training camps. The utilisation of the AIS and continued exposure to international training partners has enhanced the daily performance environment for some key athletes. The quality control of categorised athletes in decentralised environments remains a challenge. Boxing Australia is implementing strategies to address this issue including the introduction of the National Talent Identification and Development Coach Network.

Governance

Boxing Australia has continued to work towards adopting the MSGP and performs well in most areas when benchmarked against Australia’s Winning Edge sports. The organisation is performing well on its integrity measures and has committed to being a leader in the field across all metrics. A key priority for Boxing Australia over the next 12 months will be the implementation of annual board evaluations with external insights as part of their ongoing commitment to good governance.
