August 2015 - Where do we begin? 

Let’s start by turning back the hands of time and setting the date to the November 2010 election. The paradigm shift began with the New Jersey Association of USA Boxing Executive board elections and continues to date. The membership voted into office a very diverse and passionate Board of Directors who immediately identified the need to raise the bar. Raising the bar started with the commitment to invest in our future – the youth. The board realized the lack of opportunities for athletes to compete at the Junior Olympic level. The team identified JO boxers registered for 5+ years with less than 4 bouts of experience. In tournaments these youth were facing opposition with 50+ bouts of experience. We must say THANK YOU to Vito Mielnicki Sr. and the 2010 JO chairperson, Alex Devia, for hosting over 15 JO shows in 2011. This was just the beginning yet a crucial time for our junior athletes. The following term others picked up the baton and ran with it. Today’s JO Chairperson, Rob Griffin and co-chair Ahman Elliott continue the elevation of our youth boxing program. The number of regional and National Champions is at an all-time high in New Jersey and we are all proud of this winning team. 

We salute our 2015 junior Olympic team and their most recent success, five Region 1 champions, Gabriel Gerena, Rajon Chance, KahShad Elliott, Ziyaad Hassan and Muadh Salaam. Gabriel Gerena and Rajon Chance were recognized as the regional intermediate outstanding boxers of the tournament. Today New Jersey can proudly salute JO boxers who have 50 and even 100 bouts of experience. Sound like Success?

The leadership team did not stop there! They saw the need to offer more opportunities for our youth, outside of the ring. Chairperson Rob Griffin partnered with Jacklyn Atkins to embrace the "Champions of Life Program”. In 2015 the team kicked off a series of training seminars combining Olympic style boxing and healthy life styles. The program not only educates our youth but includes the adults who play an important role in the lives of these athletes.

The NJ LBC sponsored youth boxers to compete in Tournaments all over the country. ....   {More}
