Page 128 HOW SAFE IS OLYMPIC STYLE BOXING? Olympic Style boxing is a contact sport, and as with all contact sports there is a certain amount of risk involved. Below are standards set by USA Boxing (USAB) and the International Boxing Association (AIBA) followed by its members for the safety of its participants. In the Gym All registered clubs have insurance, as part of USAB, and a registered coach staff with a primary safety concern for all registered athletes All coaches that oversee sparring (practice matches and drills) and competitions are required to be registered with USAB, and have passed the coaching certification clinic test within the past two (2) years All athletes involved are required to be registered before they can participate in contact drills, sparring and/or competition Safety equipment (proper shoes, groin protector for males, headgear, mouthpiece, training gloves) must be worn during any contact drills and sparring During Competition Prior to competition a boxer must register with USAB, and have a pre-bout physical evaluation by a USAB doctor. There will also be a post-bout clearance from the ringside physician before the boxer is allowed to leave the Field of Play (FoP) USAB doctors utilize a Medical Handbook to use as a reference guide and educational tool specific to Olympic style boxing The referee is registered and certified with USAB, and has the duty and responsibility to govern the match, keeping order by enforcing the rules, and securing the safety and wellbeing of both boxers Olympic style boxers are judged on clean points scored on the opponent’s target area, competitive attitude, sportsmanship, and controlling the ring. Boxers are matched in competition by four (4) criteria; age, weight, gender and experience Competition gear (groin protector, mouthpiece, headgear, gloves) must meet USAB standards Interesting Articles: Please contact the Grassroots Task Force at [email protected] with any other safety questions.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
