High Performance TEam


The High Performance Team works actively with the board, our coaches, members, and athletes to raise the overall level of boxing in the province. This will be accomplished through seminars, physical testing, training camps and the implementation of High Performance training protocols. In this way we will insure that our BC athletes enjoy a smooth and successful transition to National and International level competition.


Team BC is made up of the top athletes in the province and represents Boxing BC at the National Championships as well as various other International and out of province competitions. Team membership is determined annually following the Provincial Championships and is based on competition results, activity, and the adherence to High Performance Training guidelines.


The High Performance team is responsible for selecting athletes for Team BC. 



The first of 2 spots will be awarded to the Gold Medalist at the BC Provincial
Championships (walkovers will not automatically be on the team and selection will be subject to the same criteria as below).


The second spot will be appointed by the Provincial Coaching Staff using the following criteria:

  • Activity of the Athlete (goal of 10 bouts per year)
  • Attendance at Provincial Training Camps
  • Technical ability
  • Potential to excel at National level
  • Box-offs can be ordered to facilitate decision making but will not be mandatory


Boxers will accumulate points during the season for activity and be seeded going into the following years Provincial Championships.

The purpose of this system is to motivate and encourage our BC athletes to maintain the activity and level of competition consistent with success at a national level.


Athletes successful in the Provincial Championships will receive:

  • GOLD: 5000 points
  • SILVER: 3000 points
  • BRONZE: 1000 point

Provincial Medallists will start the new season with these respective points totals.

All athletes who do not medal at the previous year’s provincials will start the new season with zero points.


Athletes will be awarded points throughout the season as follows:

  • WIN: 1000 points
  • LOSS or EXHIBITION: 250 points


  • WIN: 1000 points for each win 
  • TOURNAMENT WINNER: 1000 points
  • LOSS OR EXHIBITION: 250 points for each match


Using the total points accumulated through the season, athletes will then be seeded into Provincial Championships.

1st place seeded athlete will box last place seeded athlete. 2nd place seeded athlete will box second to last seeded athlete and so on.

Points totals and rankings will be tracked on the Boxing BC website and be available for reference to all members. Rankings will be updated promptly following each competition.
