St John's ABC attended Ormside Mill for pre season training during August. The mill is owned by Manchester and Lancashire Clubs for Young People and is a former water mill.
The aim of the weeks activities was to bring the boxers together,kickstart their fitness programmes,develop teamwork,and experience new challenges.
Over the week all boxers took part in the following activities; Early morning runs, Team building exercises, Circuit training, Boxing drills, Rock climbing, Abseiling, Kayaking and Ghyll scrambling.
The evenings were spent playing; Football, Dodge ball, Tennis, Fishing and for those who were still awake a game of Manhunt in the dark.
The week was both physically and mentally demanding, however all that attended agreed that it had been a enjoyable experience.
St. John's would like to thank the High Sheriff and Manchester Boys & Girls Clubs for the opportunity to use Ormside Mill. We would also like to thank Phil our outdoor pursuits instructor and manager at the mill for an excellent weeks activities and taking great care of us all.
