Since the beginning of the Boxing Program at the New York Athletic Club, we have seen Golden Gloves, Metro and National Champions. It is the goal of the program not only to produce local and national champions, but also future Olympic boxers.

We are willing to invest the time, coaching and support to help develop the next great boxer. We have a an array of coaches who have proven track records both themselves as boxers and as coaches, training champions. We are willing to train and partner with the right athletes to achieve a common goal of achieving local, national and ultimately Olympic recognition.
