Boxing Resource Center
Boxing Resource Center is a non-profit, tax-exempt, 501.c(3), organization dedicated to training youth and adults in the science and art of Olympic-style (amateur) boxing.
BRC was founded and granted nonprofit status in 2002, on the pillars of training, education outreach, research, and program design. The goal was to create an amateur boxing club that would encourage participants of any age, race, class, gender, or training goal — whether for competition or fitness — to reach their full potential.
Coach Halbert knew first-hand the benefits of boxing training, including the physical benefits of developing strength and fitness, the mental benefits of facing challenges in training and competition, and the social benefits of training in a diverse atmosphere in a sport traditionally attractive to the most marginalized and counted “out.”
In just a few years, Boxing Resource Center’s programs have brought together a growing group of volunteers who desire to make a difference in the lives of marginalized young people within the community, because research shows sport participation within diverse climates leads to improved fitness, self-esteem, mutual respect, and improved classroom outcomes.
We build community and make a positive difference in people’s lives.
