The basis of this camp is character building through the sport of Olympic Style Amateur Boxing. Our program is designed to introduce kids to the rigors of hard training, proper nutrition and self discipline. Remember, a confident child is better prepared to turn away from delinquent behavior.
Olympic Style Amateur Boxing helps combat childhood obesity by promoting physical fitness, emotional steadiness and self-confidence. Our boxing program teaches young people the importance of being self-reliant so they can go on to become Champions in Life!
Ourprogram is broken into 3 phases: RED, WHITE & BLUE. The RED phase is run over an 7-week period. The RED phase is comprised of 14 sessions, 2 classes per week during the 7-week camp (Tues & Thurs 5pm - 6pm). Each 7-week 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 9 to 16. There is one time $275 registration fee. This one time fee covers the student’s instruction and student's equipment (gloves, hand wraps, water bottle,and a BCBA tee shirt and 1 FREE month of Gym dues | $150 value).
On the first day of camp "Orientation", kids are given their gear and a promotional packet that contains:
During the 7-week period that makes up the RED phase 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 with The Pledge of Allegiance and an interactive discussion with coaches about what they learned in the previous lesson. We solicit their feedback, while encouraging them to succeed. Then there is a pre-warmup and stretching routin which includes an ab & leg workout designed to get their blood pumping and mind focused for that day's lesson.
All RED camp days end with a physical challenge as well. 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.
Once a month RED students are asked to assist with our local food drive. This task is mandatory as it helps them understand the importance of helping those less fortunate in their communities.
After successfully completing the RED phase students receive a Certificate of Completion and can move onto the WHITE phase of the program. WHITE phase students meet with coaches on Tue & Thur from 6pm - 7pm. Under their guidance, the WHITE phase is intended to bring together the boxing knowledge students have gained from the RED phase and further their skill development in the event a student desires to compete.
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 able to continue training at BCBA anytime during extended operating hours.
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:

Assisting with food drives or helping a local merchant or resident with graffiti or snow removal etc.
