St. Martin's Boxing Club was founded in 1964
out of concern for inner city youth during a period of social
unrest. They are dedicated to reducing juvenile social problems
and improving the life prospects of economically disadvantaged
youth in Rochester by taking them away from the destructive
activities of the streets and exposing them to positive role
models. It is their goal to instill the traits of
self-confidence, a good work ethic, respect for others, good
sportsmanship, self-motivation, discipline and self-control.
These traits will serve them well the rest of their lives.
St. Martin's has sponsored the NYS Silver
Gloves Tournament since 1982. They also sponsor the Region I
Championship, comprised of boxers from NY, NJ, CT, and all of
New England. The Rochester winners are transported to the
National tournament which is held in Lenexa, KA. The cost of the
tournament, including travel, is approximately $3900.
VVA Chapter 20 has contributed $500 to this
organization in 2004 and approximately $5000 in total.
