We DO encourage folks who are interested in sparring and the possibility to compete to do so! If you’d like to sparr or compete, you MUST Be a USA Boxing Registered/current athlete. The registration process is to ensure safety and liability coverage for all of our athletes. If there is anything that we take seriously at the gym, this is it. The 1st step in registration is to sign up online through USA Boxing. Blacksburg Boxing and Fitness is a USA Boxing Certified and recognized gym, so please feel free to select us as the gym you are affiliated with during the online sign-up process! Registration is $60 per athlete per CALENDAR year. So it automatically expires on December 31st, and you will have to renew each year on January 1st. Please follow the link below to get started! There will be 4 additional steps that USA Boxing will instruct you to do after completion of the online Registration. (These are not our steps/rules as a gym, but we MUST follow them in accordance with USA Boxing, again in order to ensure safety and liability coverage.) YOU CAN BRING THESE 4 items listed below to the gym and we can expedite the process for you (as opposed to sending it via snail mail to the local Boxing Committee chair!)
The 4 additional steps will be listed online, so please print them off. For your convenience, they are also listed below.
They include: 1)Printing out a Confirmation Receipt of Payment 2)Supplying 2 passport sized photos (just little picture/head shots) 3)Supplying a copy of your Passport or Birth Certificate 4) Printing out and having a DR/Medical Professional give you a physical. DR/Medical Professional must clear you to participate in order to be eligible to box.
