Saudi Boxing Federation Wraps Up Coaching Training for Women

The Saudi Boxing Federation, supported by the International Boxing Association (IBA), organized a week-long coaching training exclusively for women in Riyadh. The program saw the participation of 38 female boxing trainers from Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Tunisia, Morocco, Eritrea, the UAE, Jordan, and Palestine.

Led by Egyptian Nadia Abdelhameed Mohamed, vice-president of the IBA coaches committee, the course included theoretical lessons and practical exercises. Successful participants earned the IBA 1-star coach certification.

The training comes as more women in the Kingdom have taken up boxing as a sport. In the past years the country welcomed its first certified female boxing trainer Rasha Alkhamis, who also currently serves as the vice-president of the Saudi Boxing Federation.
