I am starting a sparring list of amateurs boxers. Only Coaches can add boxer's names to the list. Also, only coaches can arrange sparring sessions. If you are a boxer and want on the list, have your coach send me your info.
  I do not need the boxer's name. Not all boxers will be adults so we will not post names. It is not necessary anyway. You can cover details when you contact one another.

Here is what I need:  Coach's name and contact info, boxer's age, weight, number of bouts and your location. Sub-Novice, Novice and open divisions all welcome. No pros. After I get your info I'll add it to the list. The list will be visible to all members of the group. Coaches can contact each other from the list to arrange sparring sessions.

Coaches, send info to: or go to  and send message.

Boxing on Facebook

I encourage all officials, coaches and boxers to join the "Amateur Boxing" facebook page. This will be a great communication tool. Anytime you post a comment, all members get an auto email. So if you want to reach all the refs, coaches or whoever in one stroke, this is it. Or you can carry on a conversation among 15 or 20 officials at one time.  Any member can post a comment about anything boxing related. You also have the option of sending your comment to a member privately.
Just look to the right......   click on "boxing on facebook".

In order to become an amateur boxer you must be between the ages of 8 - 34. You must first register with your local boxing committee before you are eligible to compete. You will need two pictures, a copy of your birth certificate and $51 if you are in the southeastern LBC region. Other regions may have different fees. You will fill out a form and turn it back in to your gym. If you are under 18, you will need a parent or guardian signature on the form.

You will need a mouthpiece and a pair of hand wraps. You can usually get both for under $20 and if you take care of them they will last years. Most gyms have the necessary equipment for training and actual matches. You have the option of buying your own equipment such as a groin protector, headgear and boxing shoes. The protector and headgear MUST have the official USA boxing seal which signifies approval for competition.
You can buy your own training gloves for workouts but the gloves you use for actual matches will be supplied by the host of the boxing show.
You can train and compete in tennis shoes if you do not have boxing shoes.

On your first day, you will be assigned a trainer. Under his direction you will be on a workout schedule until he feels you are ready for your first match.

Good Luck
