The Club de Boxe de l’Est has confirmed a partnership with Boxing Canada and l’Institut National du Sport (INS) to offer a joint program for the Édouard-Montpetit high school students starting September 2019. Students in the program will have the privilege to train two days per week in the INS facilities at the Olympic Stadium. They will have the opportunity to watch and train alongside the elite boxers of the national team but also the other top athletes and Olympians from other sports.
“This partnership starts a new era for the sports-study program at Club de Boxe de l’Est. The Club has achieved a status and a level of interest which allows us to be more selective and raise the bar in terms of talent development and intensity. By training alongside the best athletes in the country and get to work with the coaches of the national team, we are confident that our athletes will be more motivated than ever to reach their own full potential..” adds Patrick Côté, Président du Club de Boxe de l’Est.
