Page 6 Positive Relations Inside the System It is no secret that the coach of a successful boxing club needs to have connections within the sport. In order to bring boxers into competition, to hold a boxing show, or to conduct your boxing gym you must communicate with other LBC coaches, officials, athletes, promoters, media, parents, sponsors, and many others. It is extremely important to your club’s continuation. As if this weren't enough responsibility to make coaching a full time job, now add to your Contact List the city officials, extraneous trainers (strength and conditioning, diet, etc.), land lords, bill collectors, and all the incoming callers!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
