See here for information on accessibility.

Location

We are sorry to say that the premises of Boxclub Olympia Leipzig 05 are not accessible in a wheelchair. You have to enter via the stairs and there is no lift.

Guests

We do not tolerate people with racist or fascist ideology in our gym.
Cis° men are not allowed to take part in any of the classes and are not admitted entrance during training sessions either.
The term “cis” (“this side”) characterises people who live a gender identity that matches the sex they were assigned at birth.

Fees

We have regular fees. If you are not able to pay the full amount please address us for a reduction. You do not have to disclose your reasons, we trust in your truthfulness and believe in the principles of solidarity. Trainees with refugee status may attend all classes free of cost.

Languages

The course language is German. If you are having trouble understanding we will be happy to translate the most important parts into English. We ask all trainees (if possible) to help translate (as quietly as possible). Please address us if you are having difficulty understanding.

Changing rooms

There are two communal changing rooms. If you would prefer to change alone feel free to use the bathroom. Please consider there is only one bathroom in the gym itself, but that there are two others situated in the building.

Children

Currently we are only able to offer childcare during the technical class on Fridays (4 pm – 5.30 pm). Please e-mail or call us at the latest three days beforehand, by 2 pm on the Tuesday of the week you would like us to organise it for you.

Safe space

We aim to offer a safe space in which people treat each other with respect, care and awareness and everybody can relax. It is the joined responsibility of all trainees to make this work… in a combined effort we can make this happen!

If you encounter discrimination of any kind at Sidekick, please talk to your fellow members or coaches, or entrust another person with the task of doing so for you. Together, we are sure to find a solution. Please bear in mind that we are all very different people and have all had different experiences in life. Some of us may have experience in dealing with all kinds of different challenging situations, whilst others may not have had as much experience with diversity and how to handle negative encounters as you have. Live in solidarity with each other!
