|Boxing Club was opened in September 2011 elders came to support our efforts|
Click link below to see video of the boxing program:
We started out with a bang, at least 25 kids showed up, but as time wore on and a few got hit in the nose and they quit, some found the training and discipline not to their liking. Some did not want to give up alcohol or weed and/or were getting into trouble and were asked to leave. We now have six fighters that come pretty steady and are serious about training. We get a walk in from time to time as we are always open for anyone if they want to try to compete and follow the rules.
We are trying our best to offer them a way out and a way up in life. They are good kids that just need a break and some words of encouragement. We require them to sign a letter of agreement to stay in school, stay out of trouble and not to use alcohol/drugs, be willing to pray. We pay for their sanctioning fees, club fees, all training equipment, any travel and meals when on the road, all they have to do is show up and try their best to follow the rules.We want them to be winners in life not just in the ring.
