Morrison Boxing Club Newsletter 5/17/16

Juniors: We prefer that Juniors train alongside other Juniors. However many of our younger members will attend day camps this summer. Transportation schedules may prove difficult to coordinate. Therefore when school lets out we will allow the Junior Boxers to train alongside the Senior Boxers (weekdays except Friday, 6:00 pm- 8:00 pm) if that is more convenient. There will not be any increase in dues if you elect to switch to the later hours for the duration of the summer.

All Boxers: USA Boxing has instituted a new policy regarding annual physicals which takes effect on June 1, 2016. Everyone must submit the results of a Physician administered physical examination and the physician must certify the athlete is fit to box using the USA Boxing supplied forms. These forms are available in the gym. Completed form should be sent to Ray Rodgers, LBC Registration Chair.

All Boxers: We are considering offering an additional training time on Saturdays at no additional cost. This will be a strength, agility and conditioning session designed specifically for boxing. The proposed time is 11:00 AM. Each session will consist of plyometric exercises, isometric exercises and calisthenics along with light progressive resistance exercise using free weights and agility drills. As we envision this session it will last approximately one hour (60 minutes). Juniors will be offered a nutritionally balanced snack between the close of the JO session and the start of the strength session. If you or your child is interested in attending please speak to any of the coaches and let us know of your interest. If there is not sufficient interest we may not proceed with the new session.
