St Louis All City Boxing
There are many boxing gyms focused solely on teaching boxing skills. We believe that boxing is a mechanism to reach urban at-risk youth, in an effort to provide them with the resources, discipline, and support they need in order to build a life for themselves. We have no intention of being just another boxing gym.
Our program isn't just about building champions in the ring. We aim to provide a comprehensive program, academic support, a nutrition program, community building through volunteerism and mentoring so our boxers can be champions outside the ring as well. Spending time with these athletes, giving them a safe place to learn and grow, providing them with the opportunity to see what is outside of this city when traveling to national tournaments - are all components of our program. Our involvement doesn't end when the gloves come off as so many programs do. Help our kids beat the odds!
We help our kids with homework everyday. The kids in our program also get a healthy snack at the gym. Building a team atmosphere in a positive healthy environment is our goal.
Practicing the skills the athletes learn in the gym.
Building fitness is a priority at our gym.

Our boxing program teaches discipline, respect in a structured environment through which we train, teach, and instruct youths and young people of all ages, sexes and nationality to perform to their highest potential in all aspects of life.

Thank you for your time and efforts to support the young men and women we work with.

In the City of St Louis, most kids don't own their own safety equipment. It belongs to the gym or recreation center where they box. It is our mission to outfit as many of the boxers in St Louis with their own gear. This allows them to travel to other gyms to spar with equipment that belongs to them. It allows them to be protected with top quality gear and give them a sense of pride for being able to have something new that they can be responsible for themselves.
We have almost completed our goal of being able to outfit 30 boxers with Rival Boxing Gear as the prizes for participation in our next boxing show. We have one thing left that will allow us to complete our mission to provide custom mouthguards that are dental quality from Impact Mouthguards.
Our June 4th show is approaching. If you've got it to give, help us out. Thank you to our incredible supporters who have made this mission possible.
We had five boxers qualify for the Region 5 Silver Gloves Championships in Fremont, NE this month. We sold All City hoodies and t-shirts to fund the trip to Nebraska. (If you ordered one - they are in the mail!) The boys were excited to visit a new state this year! Our team did well in the tournament! We had three boxers advance to the National Silver Gloves Championships in Independence, MO February 3-7, 2016!
We have also been working with the Metro Theater Company as a partner in the Cassius Clay Project. Our kids are really excited about being part of this incredible production and the project that surrounds it. See the video for more on our involvement with the Cassius Project.
We are hoping to roll out our full nutrition program this year in addition to adding a computer station and internet access to our gym for educational purposes. Most of the kids in our program have no internet access at home. This is often a barrier to completing homework projects, learning about our city, our sport and participating in other educational opportunities that internet affords. For example, we use the Khan Academy site ( https://www.khanacademy.org/ ) a bunch when we work on math homework. Right now we are limited to pulling up the site on one of our phones.
As always, thank you for your support!
