Sched​ule ​of Amateur Boxing Events​​​​

Hopefully you are all having a great summer!  Brad and I put together this summary update about the status of amateur boxing in the LBC.  Please reach out to Brad or Sue for more information.

Unfortunately, there still has been no clear guidance provided by New York State about gym openings.  Gyms in general were not included in the Phase 4 reopening plan and boxing gyms, with their small ring spaces and close contact, are likely to be at the end of any reopening list.  

USA Boxing continues to provide recommendations from their national perspective and some areas of the country are moving toward resuming team training and competition.  With COVID infection rates increasing in many states, however, it is likely there will be more changes with their plans coming up.  Recommendations from our state and local officials about Eastern Upstate New York will guide any decisions in the Adirondack LBC.  

A related reference to consider is high school sports.  The New York State Public High School Athletic Association has released guidelines for a number of plans covering different scenarios for the return of high school sports in the upcoming school year.  A return to a typical school sports schedule is unlikely, so it's worth looking at where they have high-risk sports like football and wrestling listed (one plan includes moving those to the Spring of 2021).  We will likely need to consider these types of recommendations when planning our return to regular competition.

Before a return to traditional competition, the LBC will be required to hold one or more "Test Events" to practice new protocols designed to ensure the safety of all participants.  These will include limitations on who can compete, follow guidelines for social distancing and the use of personal protective equipment and will include no spectators.  

We do have a couple goals to work for in advance of this, including building a list of active boxers available to compete in the Test Events, securing a venue, officials and a ringside physician, etc.  We want to involve all of our members in these plans so we can work together to make each and every Adirondack boxing event a success.  We will schedule another video meeting coming up to discuss.

This has been so difficult for many of us in boxing and the uncertainty remains a real tough pill to swallow.  The extended wait for specific guidelines that cover training and competition in our part of the world has been really tough. With New York's numbers improving steadily, we hope that more pertinent information will be available soon.  

Wishing you, your friends and family a safe and healthy Summer!
