The Barbados Boxing Association

The Barbados Boxing Association is an organisation, registered as a charity under the Charities Act, aimed to encourage, promote and regulate the sport of Boxing in Barbados and to join with other associations and organisations to do so. It is currently composed of individual, Honorary and Life members, and gyms, but recognises the importance of including and aims to include clubs, colleges, schools, & universities, as listed in its constitution. The Association has recently become engaged in a number of projects geared toward the
enrichment of its members, particularly its coaches and technical officials, with the objective of elevating the performance of its athletes many of whom are enrolled from at-risk communities. A pilot project, Gloves over Guns, will launch very soon. It features boxing and life-skills programmes offered to young men and women in selected at-risk communities as well. These intense and community-oriented programmes require the co-ordinated input from resources that, outside of a charity organisation, would be extremely costly. Our members are from diverse backgrounds and we encourage persons of all ages, gender, abilities or disabilities, ethnicities, and social origins to join us in our mandate to improve ourselves and the communities in which we live.
