USA Boxing Back to Boxing Update

May 29, 2020, 2:13 p.m. (ET)

USA Boxing is committed to supporting our gyms reopening and our members training, as the country gradually proceeds to lift stay-at-home orders. Coming out of mitigation in a controlled way, with systems in place to reduce outbreaks are critical to navigating the next phase of this pandemic. Leaders at all levels, from USA Boxing, to LBCs, and gym coaches, will need to prepare their communities and continue containing the disease by systematically evaluating and making adjustments as we return to training and eventually competitions as safely as possible.

Moving forward our guiding principles will remain:

1. Safety of our members/boxers

2. Safety of our staff/coaches

3. Safety of our community, friends and families

USA Boxing has three tiers of returning to competition:

Tier 1: Return to the Gym

Preparation: Preparing your gym and coaching staff

Phase 1: Limited Participation

Phase 2: Moderate Participation

Phase 3: Responsible Participation

Tier 2: Return to Single Day Events (Club Shows)

Tier 3: Return to Multi-Day Events (Tournaments)

These documents deliver USA Boxing’s recommendations based on research done by USA Boxing staff, recommendations by the CDC, USA Boxing Physician and Coaches Commissions and of federal, state, and local governments. These recommendations are geared to reduce risks during Tier 1: Return to the Gym as stay-at-home orders are lifted and USA Boxing members begin to return to gyms. Please continue to follow your state and local guidelines.
