Wayne Smith

Olympia Boxing CIC Director and Coach

Experience: Coach Educator, Level 3 England Boxing, AIBA 1 Star qualified Coach. BBBofC Licensed Professional Trainer. Currently coach at St Mary’s ABC.

About Me: I have a passion for helping people achieve their goals and have followed boxing ever since I can remember. I have been in boxing over 15 years, I competitively boxed for 5 years until a non boxing related injury forced me to hang up the gloves. I then did my coaching qualifications and never looked back, going on to represent England at international competition.

I coach people from complete beginners to international level athletes. Bringing the best out in people is a great reward for my work.

Coaching is a really rewarding job seeing the kids enjoying their selves doing something positive. If I could get 1 in 5 kids I meet into sport, I have achieved my goal.

Tommy Tanner

Olympia Boxing CIC Coach

Experience: England Boxing Level 1 Coach, GB Boxing Tutor, BOX Instructor and a Diploma in Sports Coaching Fitness Development.

About Me: I have always been interested in the sport of boxing as it gives so much to young people. It not just a sport, it gives young people a chance to work towards something, gain self confidence and learn a lot about themselves!

I started my boxing journey by attending the Olympia Boxing Boxing Youth community sessions and found the enjoyment and love for the sport. The main reason I become a coach is because I really enjoy seeing how happy the young people are when they come to all sessions. It makes me feel like I am doing my job properly in making them feel welcome and having an enjoyable session.

If all the young people I coach are happy in what they are doing in the sessions and then some go on further into the sport I would know I have done good for the young person and myself.

Boxing all over the country against top lads until I first got called up to box Internationally at 15 years old. Travelling the world boxing has been a great experience and that’s why I have become a coach. My hope is to help people achieve their goals, and hopefully get young people into boxing. To give them focus, inspiration and the motivation to want to achieve the best out of themselves. Whatever their goals, I want to help them achieve it.

Anthony Grove

Olympia Boxing CIC Coach

Experience: England Boxing BOX Instructor, GB Boxing Tutor, Level 3 Teaching Qualification.

About Me: I have been a huge boxing fan for as long as I can remember. However, I started boxing at a later age due to poor life choices as a youth. I wish that programmes like Olympia Boxing’s was available when I was young. I think it is so important in providing a safe place for children to have fun and gain confidence.

I started as a Coach Mentee at Olympia Boxing working in various schools and community settings. I instantly fell in love with coaching because I enjoy helping others achieve individual goals and fulfil their full potential. My personal goal to further my career in coaching, is to gain as much experience as possible expanding my knowledge in the sport.

I believe boxing is a sport that can offer huge opportunity for kids from all walks of life, I am proud to be part of the Olympia Boxing Coaching Team.

Katie Grover

Olympia Boxing CIC Coach

Experience: England Boxing BOX Instructor, GB Boxing Tutor.

About Me: Boxing has been apart of my life since I was 7 and now being 18, it is all I have know for 11 years. Not only is it an amazing sport, it changes your life; whether you get in the ring or just train in the sport. It teaches you discipline, work ethic, self- control, self confidence and most importantly about yourself!

In my boxing career I have achieved so much, from winning two national titles to being put on the England talent pathway. To then actually going on and being chosen to represent England in the EUBC Junior European Boxing Championships in Romania, representing your country in a sport you love is truly the most amazing thing that could happen. That is why being part of Olympia Boxing is the place for me, I want to give to people my knowledge and what I have learnt over the years of boxing and let them enjoy it how I have!
