Boxing Ontario Talent ID Camp – Elite Female & Male [Register by Sept. 15]
Boxing Canada has informed us of their intent to host evaluation training camps this fall. The purpose of these camps is to identify Canadian boxers who have the potential to be developed and provide them with an opportunity to participate in an International Training Camp later this year or early 2022.
Boxing Ontario will be hosting an Elite Male & Elite Female assessment camp on September 18 at Kombat Arts to determine selection for the Boxing Canada camps. Check-in time for the camps is 12:30pm EST.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 15 [REGISTRATION FORM BELOW]
Due to COVID protocols, Boxing Canada has reduced the number of athletes who can qualify per province. Ontario will now send 4 boxers per category (Elite Male, Elite Female, Youth/Junior). Note: *We are only accepting Open boxers for the Elite categories.

Boxers will be evaluated using Boxing Canada’s Winning Style of Play (WSP) and Gold Medal Profile (GMP). The components of the WSP and GMP are being turned into a 10-point scale scoring rubric. Details of the scoring criteria can be found below:
- The RBC Training Ground testing protocols will serve as our tool to measure a boxer’s basic fitness level. The tests were chosen because they offer us a fair and transparent way to assess conditioning. Elite boxers must complete the RBC tests in their home gym and submit the results to Boxing Ontario by September 17.
- Technical evaluations will be conducted in-person at the camps. The testing will require boxers to complete a series of boxing related skills. Footwork, stance, quickness, and a boxer’s ability to listen and perform specific actions are being assessed in this section.
- For the sparring component, boxers will be paired with another boxer. Note: every accommodation will be made to match boxers with a suitable sparring partner, and that may include bringing in a partner from outside the camp. Boxers will be given three rounds to demonstrate their skills in the ring. The first round will be an open format round, and for the second and third rounds, boxers will be asked to incorporate specific tactics. Boxers are being evaluated on their demonstration of skills as well as their ability to follow specific coaching instructions.
- Personal data points will also be considered. A boxer’s age, weight, height, and a review of their record from January 2018 until now will be considered.
