Our Amateur Olympic Style Boxing Program is designed to help kids turn away from crime, drugs and gang involvement 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 Amateur Olympic StyleBoxing helps combat childhood obesity by promoting physical fitness, emotional steadiness and self-confidence.
In addition, sports like boxing 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 first two phases of D.R.I.F.T. are run consecutively over a 7-week period. The RED & WHITE phases are 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 students to insure students get the quality instruction they need and the attention they deserve.
Only students that successfully complete the Red and White phase of D.R.I.F.T. move onto the Blue phase ( WHICH INCLUDES FREE WED & SAT GYM USE FOR THE FIRST YEAR). Again...NO ONE moves on to the BLUE phase without first successfully completing both the RED & WHITE phases of D.R.I.F.T.
Our program is offered to local youth age 10 to 17. There is one time $395 registration fee. This fee covers instruction, student's equipment (hand wraps and bag gloves) and a promotional packet which contains:
BCBA Bumper Sticker
Student Commitment To Excellence Contract
Program Rules & Regulations
BCBA Tee Shirt
Student Workout Chart - To Record A Students Progress
During the 7-week period that makes up the RED & WHITE phases of D.R.I.F.T. students are challenged both physically and mentally. 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 weekend 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 weekend assignment during the review session of the following class. Though weekend character-building assignments are simple in nature, they must be completed if a student is to successfully complete the D.R.I.F.T. program (when given). 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 both the RED & WHITE phases of D.R.I.F.T., students receive a Certificate of Completion and then move onto the BLUE phase of the program. Blue students meet Wed – 4pm - 6pm and Sat 11am – 1pm. The BLUE phase of D.R.I.F.T. is intended to bring together the knowledge students have gained from the RED & WHITE phases. The BLUE phase hones the boxing skills learned in the prior phases of D.R.I.F.T. and preps a student for competition and or sparring (if they express the desire to do so and their parents give permission).
Graduating to the BLUE phase comes with a host of benefits including:
The ability to compete (if they so desire) for Team BCBA. Registered Team Members receive extended gym hour privileges as well.
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 normal operating hours FREE of charge until they are 18 (see operating schedule for hours).
BLUE students are eligible to join Team BCBA on a host of outside activities. Field trips to Museums, Music Events, Science Fairs and Sporting Events are all offered to BLUE students.
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!
