The basis of this camp is character building through the sport of Olympic Style Amateur Boxing Camp. Our Camp is designed to introduce kids to the rigors of hard training 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 as an afterschool camp. The RED phase meets MWF 4pm - 5pm. This afterschool camp is limited to ONLY 20 students to insure students get the quality instruction they need and the attention they deserve.
Our program is offered to local youth age 10 thru 16. There is a $75 per month registration fee. A student's beginner equipment package is an additional $50 and includes bag gloves, hand wraps, water bottle and a BCBA tee shirt. ALL STUDENTS MUST WEAR THEIR BCBA TEE SHIRT TO THIS CAMP!
During the RED phase of our Boxing Program, 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.
All RED camp days 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 attending the RED phase for a few months, a student's progress is assessed by a coach. Coaches will determine which students can move onto the WHITE phase of the program. WHITE phase students meet with coaches on Tue & Thur from 8pm - 9:30pm. 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 preparation for sparring and team competition.
WHITE phase students can also use the gym on Mon & Wed for open training between 6pm -9pm. Again, only students that are successfully assessed during the RED phase, can move onto the WHITE phase (dues then drops to just$50 per month).
After a student's grasp of the WHITE phase, they become 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 mastered the boxing techniques and teachings learned during the WHITE phase. Coach's will be looking at a 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 competitive 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 boxing 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.
