Local legend, Anthony Joshua, came to Wembley in style last April for a record- breaking World Championship bout. To mark this occasion SweetScience teamed up with The Wembley Learning Zone and offered local schools a free non-contact boxing workshop. The interest and participation was so phenomenal that we are now continuing our work at Wembley Stadium.
There are no physical fights at these classes, but participants train with coaches through instruction, pad work and a range of drills. Sessions are primarily about fitness and technique, especially for adults, however they are designed to facilitate character development in young people (self-control, self-esteem, respect, discipline, perseverance, sportsmanship etc.)
School workshops are available on Tuesdays for selected schools to attend and adult sessions are also available for school staff, Wembley University students, Wembley Stadium and FA employees.
It was a dream come true for SweetScience to be working in our National Stadium at Wembley in the build up to the biggest British fight of all time: victorious Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko in front of a 90,000 sell-out crowd. And we're still living the dream by continuing our work at Wembley for all the young aspiring Anthony Joshua's out there...
All SweetScience coaches are dedicated professionals with Enhanced DBS Checks.

Non-Contact Boxing Workshops
We have selected schools coming in to our programme at Wembley on a regular basis, completing a non-contact boxing session with us and then having a tour of Wembley Stadium itself – getting an inside look to where the Joshua fight took place, through to where the Champions got changed and prepared themselves for the big night on 29th April 2017. The capacity is limited and the Learning Zone operates a ‘first-come first-served’ policy. If you are a school, register your interest today to avoid disappointment.
