Teams Ireland & Ukraine hold 1st camp joint training session.

Team Ireland and Team Ukraine have held their first joint training session as part of their camp, kindly hosted in Castlerea BC, Co. Roscommon.

Ukraine has brought a full squad of Olympic weight boxers to contest against Ireland in a Round Robin on April 5th. These will follow a series of collective squad training sessions with Ireland, and test matches from April 2nd to 4th. The training camp, and the International, is kindly hosted by Castlerea Boxing Club and Connacht Provincial Council.

Ukraine is returning to Ireland after taking part a High Performance Super Camp in Sport Institute Ireland, the home of the HPU, in September. The High Performance Unit has, in the last 6 months, hosted Spain, France and Turkey in camps in Dublin and Belfast.

Yesterday, High Performance hosted a Coach Coaching Seminar at Castlerea BC. This is the second such seminar hosted by High Performance in 2024, following the holding of an Ulster Coaching Seminar at the Ulster High Performance Unit at the University of Ulster, Jordanstown, in January. Up to 30 coaches took part in that workshop.
