On the membership page, you will find information on registration for athletes and non-athletes, important forms and information on filing grievances.

On the calendar page, you can see a schedule of upcoming events, as well as detailed information for each event (address, point of contact, etc.).  An added feature of the calendar page is the new prematching system.  Before taking advantage of that events prematching page, we suggest that you visit the general prematching information page for instructions on the process.  Note: Please avoid posting multiple comments with the same information.  Duplicate comments will be removed during moderation.

On the results page, you will find a list of bouts, winners, scores for previous matches.

On the news page, there will be updated/important information pertinent to the association.  This might include dates/times of an event, changes to a location, featured boxers, etc.  We encourage comments for each news posting.

On the contact us page, you will have the ability to contact a specific board of director via email or phone.  Bio’s for each director will be coming soon.  All content submissions should be sent to the webmaster, including pictures, videos, and questions regarding the site.

Welcome new board of directors, and congratulations on your positions. We would like to remind everyone about the upcoming Board of Directors meeting on March 16th.  Please see calendar for details.
