- About Us
High Performance is a concept within sport that is highly focused on a group of individuals or teams with the aim of achieving individual and overall goals to achieve success against our competition.
Boxing Australia has had a proud history with our High Performance programs. In 1997, the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) introduced Boxing as a scholarship sport. Its origins started out as a camp-based program, and by the early 2000?s, Boxing became a full-residential program at the AIS.
In 2005 Boxing was accepted as a program sport for the Australian Sports Commissions (ASC) National Talent Identification and Development (NTID) program which focused on identifying indigenous and heavyweight talent.
In 2011, after the removal as an AIS Residential program Boxing Australia established full-ownerships and management of our High Performance programs. The Boxing Australia Academy was established and conducted out of the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra (Centralised camps-based).
The Boxing Australia Centre of Excellence was developed as a decentralised program within each state and territory. The purpose of the program is to identify talented boxers that have the potential to represent their state or territory at future Australian Championships.
Boxing Australia receives significant support from the Australian Sports Commission and the Australian Institute of Sport to conducting the running of our High Performance programs.
