Boxing coach and Sky Sports Analyst, Coldwell, announced through his social media channels, that he would be launching ‘Kixx Hyde’, during the early 2021, with academies opening across Hyde and surrounding areas in Manchester.
Coldwell is more well known in the sport of boxing than in football, training athletes like Tony Bellew, Derek Chisora, Jordan Gill, Hopey Price and British & Commonwealth Champion, Lerrone Richards.
However, this isn’t an immediate sport’s switch for Coldwell, as he has been a dedicated father, mentor and coach to his own sons football journey which started five years ago when son, Theo, joined the ‘Kixx Rotherham’ academies.
At just 4 years of age, this was Theo’s first introduction to football and where the true love for football began. Both David and Theo felt the positive impact of the Kixx coaching, which 5 years on has led to David launching his very own Kixx franchise.
David Coldwell commented:
“When Theo was four, he’d never previously shown much of an interest in football but out of the blue he’d said he wanted to give a go.
“My family had heard good things about Kixx at the time, so we decided to take him to Kixx Rotherham, and we were just blown away.
“It wasn’t just about learning new football skills. In just a few weeks Theo’s confidence increased and the shyness he displayed in public situations started to fade away.
“We both fell in love with coming to the football academies, seeing all the children with smiles on their faces and simply enjoying what they are doing. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, the learning and trying process slows down massively.
“Everything Kixx does is set up to engage and inspire children and this is something that I wanted to be a part of, alongside my son Theo, who to me, is my biggest inspiration in life.
“Our team can’t wait to launch the academies and start making a positive impact on the live’s of children in Hyde and surrounding communities”
Boxing fans and athletes don’t need to fear a sudden career switch, as he won’t be becoming a full-time football coach anytime soon.
Coldwell added: “My full time work will of course remain in boxing, but this is a project that is very personal to me and my family.
“My Family are everything to me and the impact that Kixx had on my son is one of the biggest reasons I am investing and starting my own Kixx Academies. I want to inspire more young children to get active and enjoy the journey like Theo did. Kixx Hyde gives me a fantastic opportunity to do just that.”
“I share the same values to help change children’s lives through coaching and sport. We are assembling a fantastic team who will share my passion, the Kixx values and our mission to positively impact as many children as possible.”
We can’t wait to see Kixx Hyde in action and look forward to sharing more exciting news from David Coldwell and his team as we build up to the launch.
