Sample Handout Hello New Boxer, Welcome to ABC Boxing, where we are dedicated to teaching our neighborhood youth valuable life skills through boxing, so they can grow into the responsible leaders of tomorrow, by being positive community contributors today. Our members fall into four categories 1) Recreational: Boxing for fitness 2) Amateur: Boxing for sport; entry to elite/Olympic level 3) Professional: Prizefighting for experienced boxers who want to get paid to box 4) Volunteer: assist with gym duties and team support As a member of the ABC Boxing Team, you have the opportunity to belong to a strong, united community that not only trains hard and has fun together. Occasionally we plan field trips, special events, fight nights, end of season bar-b- q’s, and annual awards parties to celebrate our accomplishments. As an athlete on the competitive amateur team you will travel to compete against other teams in a variety of locations in our region and across the nation. Some of your former and present teammates have gone on to win the Golden Gloves, the National Police Athletic League (PAL), USA Boxing tournaments, and represented the ABC Boxing Club in a positive and enthusiastic manner. Even the XYZ Middleweight Champion, John “Pretty Boy” Smith, had his beginnings with the ABC Boxing Club, winning his amateur national championship under the tutelage of Coach Paul Shenanigan, our head trainer. Here’s a few words from Pretty Boy Smith, “The ABC Boxing Club was crucial to me becoming the responsible young man I am today. Now, as a professional fighter, and world champion, I am one person responsible to provide for my fight team, and my family. I am thankful that when I was young I made the decision to leave the streets and stay in the sanctuary of the ABC Boxing Club. Here I learned discipline, sportsmanship, and how to act as a confident grown adult. With the guidance from my mentors I was able to take these tools, finish high school, and go on to graduate college. I choose professional boxing because I love it, and not because I have to.

    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.
