The youth high performance camp of 2020 is set to begin on Wednesday at the United States Olympic and Paralympic Training Center (USOPTC) in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Under the guidance of USA Boxing National Junior and Youth Head Coach Augie Sanchez (Las Vegas, Nev.), as well as high performance coaches Adonis Frazier (Minneapolis, Minn.), Timothy Nolan (Rochester, N.Y.), Edward Ochoa (Gilbert, Ariz.) and Nora Trujillo (Richmond, Texas), the 18 boxers attending camp will participate in multiple training sessions throughout the day until Feb. 21. 

This year’s youth high performance team has a mix of returning boxers, with many making the transition from last year’s junior high performance, as well as a few boxers making their first high performance team. A full camp roster can be seen below.
