USA Boxing Athlete of the Month Guidelines

May 12, 2014, 6:14 p.m. (ET)

Champions aren´t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision.

 – Muhammad Ali

We don’t have to tell you about all the hard work it takes both in and out of the ring to be a winner.  Most of the time it’s easy to feel like your achievements goes unnoticed but they don’t. That is why USA Boxing is excited to announce our new monthly program highlighting the outstanding boxers and coaches that make up our organization. The best part? You, our members, will be picking the winners. 

Coaches: Do you have an athlete who win or lose maintains a positive attitude with their coaches, fellow teammates, and opponents? Do they strive to better themselves, their families, and their communities? 

Athletes: Do you have a coach who goes above and beyond to give you their all? Does their commitment to the sport and their athletes inspire you to work harder? 

We want your submissions! We want to hear your stories and share them with the entire USA Boxing community. Not only do these boxing leaders deserve to be commended for their efforts, we can all learn by their example. 

The staff in Colorado Springs will pick the top five submissions each month and post them on USABOXING.ORG. After that it will be up to our members, along with their friends and families, to vote for the winner. The winning athlete and coach will have their picture and biographies highlighted on our website and will each receive a $(TBD MONDAY) gift certificate to the USA BOXING Store. 

July will be our first month for the program. We will be accepting the first batch of nominees until June 15th; over the following week our staff in Colorado Springs will review the nominees and whittle the list down to 5. Voting will begin at on Monday, June 23 and end on Sunday June 29. The first Athlete and Coach of the Month will be announced on Monday June 30.
