Our Olympic Style Amateur Boxing Camp is designed to help kids turn away from delinquent behavior by encouraging them to D.R.I.F.T. towards success! The basis of this program is character building.
D.R.I.F.T. teaches the natural virtues of Devotion, Respect, Integrity, Fairness and Temperance, while Olympic Style Amateur Boxing helps combat childhood obesity by promoting physical fitness, emotional steadiness and self-confidence. In addition our boxing program teaches young people the importance of being self-reliant so they can go on to become Champions in Life!
Our D.R.I.F.T. program is broken into 3 phases: RED, WHITE & BLUE. The RED phase of D.R.I.F.T. is run over a 7-week period. The RED phase is comprised of 14 sessions, 2 classes per week during the 7-week period (Tues & Thurs 5pm - 6pm). Each 14 lesson session is limited to 10 - 12 students to insure students get the quality instruction they need and the attention they deserve.
Our program is offered to local youth age 10 to 17. There is one time $395 registration fee. This one time fee covers the student’s instruction, 1st year’s gym dues (a $600 value), student's equipment (gloves, hand wraps, water bottle and BCBA tee shirt a $50 value). On the first day of camp "Orientation", kids are given a promotional packet that contains:
BCBA Bumper Sticker
Student Commitment To Excellence Contract
Program Rules & Regulations
Student Workout Charts
During the 7-week period that makes up the RED phase of D.R.I.F.T. students are challenged both physically and mentally. The RED phase is all about learning the basics and fundamentals of Olympic Style Amateur Boxing. Each class begins and ends with an interactive discussion between coaches and students. During these sessions coaches review previous lessons and solicit feedback from students while encouraging them to succeed.
Occasionally students are given a homework assignment. Assignments are based on the principals of D.R.I.F.T. and are designed to reinforce the natural virtues of Devotion, Respect, Integrity, Fairness and Temperance! Assignments may be as simple as using the meanings of the words that spell D.R.I.F.T. in a short paragraph, to donating an extra hour of their time to help someone in need.
Coaches ascertain whether a student completed their homework assignment during the review session of the following class. Though character-building homework assignments are simple in nature (when given), they must be completed if a student is to successfully complete the D.R.I.F.T. program. All D.R.I.F.T. sessions will end with a physical challenge and lesson quiz. These challenges are designed to chart a student's progress as it pertains to their fitness level and how they are grasping the boxing fundamentals they are being taught.
After successfully completing the RED phase of D.R.I.F.T. students receive a Certificate of Completion and then move onto the WHITE phase of the program. WHITE phase students meet Mon - Wed - Fri from 4pm - 6pm and Sat 11am – 1pm. The WHITE phase of D.R.I.F.T. is intended to bring together the boxing knowledge students have gained from the RED phase. On Wednesday & Saturday there is a team workout at the beginning of class after which kids are free to play Basketball, Dodge Ball or open gym workouts.
Only students that successfully complete the RED phase of D.R.I.F.T. can move onto the WHITE phase (FREE GYM USE FOR THEIR 1st YEAR). NO ONE can obtain FREE gym use during the WHITE phase without first successfully completing the RED phase of D.R.I.F.T.!
After a student's first year in the WHITE phase a student becomes eligible to move onto the BLUE phase. Sparring and competition is available in the BLUE phase but a student MUST PROVE to the coaches they have grasped the boxing techniques and teachings learned during the WHITE phase. Coach's will be looking at as student's attendance, attitude and ability when making an athlete's assessment. Students must also show a desire and a willingness to engage/compete. When a student makes it to the BLUE phase the athlete is prepped for competition through sparring and advanced training (but student desire, parent's consent and coach's assessment is required).
Making it to the BLUE phase comes with a host of benefits including:
The ability to compete for Team BCBA after Registering with USA Boxing
As a BLUE student you are offered advanced boxing instruction by Team BCBA's advanced boxing staff.
BLUE students are eligible to join Team BCBA on trips to outside Sporting Events and Boxing matches (included when funding is available)
Graduating to the BLUE phase comes with an added level of responsibility as well. At BCBA a BLUE Student is considered a leader. He/she must conduct himself/herself in a manner equal to that of a champion!
No horsing around or foul language will be tolerated.
BLUE Student must show a willingness to help others whether at BCBA or away from our gym.
BLUE Students must donate a small amount of their time each month to participate in BCBA Outreach. These events include:
Helping serve those less fortunate be it at a local shelter or church.
Helping clean up a local public park or monument.
Assisting a local merchant or resident with graffiti or snow removal etc.
This is just an overview of our D.R.I.F.T. program, an intense and highly structured course designed to empower youth with the tools they’ll need to turn away from gangs, drugs and delinquency while battling the epidemic that is childhood obesity.
