The basis of this camp is character building through the sport of Olympic Style Amateur Boxing. Our Camp is designed to introduce kids to the rigors of hard training and self discipline. Remember, a confident kid 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!
Our program is broken into 2 phases: The FIRST phase is run over a 7-week period. This phase is comprised of 14 sessions, 2 classes per week during the 7-week camp (meeting Tues & Thurs 6PM - 7PM). Each 7-week session is limited to 5 - 10 students. This insures students get the quality instruction they need while getting the attention they deserve.
Our program is offered to local youth ages 9 to 16. There is one time $375 registration fee. This fee covers the student’s instruction and student's equipment (gloves, hand wraps, water bottle and a BCBA tee shirt | $75 value).
On the first day of camp "Orientation", kids are given a promotional packet that contains:
Student Commitment To Excellence Contract
Program Rules & Regulations
Student Workout Chart
During the 7-week period that makes up the FIRST phase, students are challenged both physically and mentally. This 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. All camp sessions end with a physical challenge and lesson review. 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 FIRST phase, students receive a Certificate of Completion and can move onto the open gym phase of the program; Phase Two open gym sessions meet MWF from 6PM to 7PM. Here students meet with coaches for Offense Training & Review on Mondays, Defense Training & Review on Wednesdays, and light sparring and engagement on Fridays.
This the Open Gym phase is intended to bring together the boxing knowledge students have gained from the Camp phase and further their skill development in the event a student desires to compete. Only students that have successfully complete the First phase (Youth Boxing Camp) can move onto the Open Youth Boxing Gym (phase TWO).
The cost for Open Youth Boxing Gym is $75 per month or $150 for 3 months. Competition is available to any student who can show a coach they have grasped the techniques and teachings taught during both camp and gym classes. Coach's are also looking at as student's attendance, attitude and ability when making an athlete's assessment. Students must show a desire and a willingness to engage/compete.
