 The Boss Boxing was born out of an identified need from within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Zillmere and surrounding suburbs for the need for a culturally safe space which allowed for meaningful connection, inclusivity and mentoring. Founder and Head Coach Sammy Leone, a former Australian Institute of Sport Scholarship holder and Australian Indigenous Boxing Champion, saw the opportunity to create positive change through the transaction of culture and connection through his sport of boxing. Boss Boxing provides benefits to participants far greater than just physical activity.

 

Since its opening in 2019, The Boss Boxing has been entirely run by volunteers and has grown to a 150-strong member base, offering a range of sponsorship opportunities to marginalised children and youth. Programs include Little Warriors, for those aged 5 to 10 years, Community Warriors for anyone aged 11 and above and a Competitive Boxers program for our elite level athletes. We offer a range of sponsorship opportunities for disadvantaged youth to ensure they have access to benefits of our programs, and aim to keep the cost of participation down for all of our athletes. This helps to overcome financial and social barriers and promotes equal access to a brighter future for all.

 

Throughout the year, the gym supports a range of additional activities including facilitating our Competitive Boxers attendance at elite level events across the country and running cultural engagement activities for our First Nations children and youth with local and surrounding communities and Elders. These initiatives create real opportunities for the futures of the next generation, whilst creating opportunities to connect with culture and promote positive health and wellbeing behaviours.

 

The Boss Boxing relies heavily on the generosity of our donors to continue this great work, and we appreciate your support today and into the future
