USA Boxing Alumni Association To Provide Study Hall for Boxers Participating in Western Qualifier
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (March 3, 2019) — The USA Boxing Alumni Association will provide a study hall for boxers participating at the 2019 Western Elite Qualifier & Regional Open Championships in Reno, Nevada, March 23-30.
Boxers will be offered a quiet space, which will be open 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, in the Grand Sierra Resort to complete school work they may be missing while attending the tournament.
“In the last couple of years, USA Boxing has offered an increased number of national tournaments to give our boxers more opportunities for competition,” stated Taryn Cass, USA Boxing Events and Boxing Operations Coordinator. “With many of these tournaments taking place during the school year, we have realized a need to provide opportunities for our boxers to see success outside the ring as well. Partnering with the Alumni Association, we came up with the new study hall.”
The room will be set up, classroom style with desks and school materials to complete any work they may need to do. A sign-in and sign-out sheet will be used to help keep track of hours. To incentivize the use of the Study Hall, boxers who spend a minimum of two hours in the space will be entered in a daily drawing for prizes.
