***2015 MIDDLE ATLANTIC JUNIOR OLYMPIC TOURNAMENT***
To all Members: As you all should be aware, we had registrations for the 2015 MAA Jr. Olympic Tournament in an unprecedented fashion. Boxers and Coaches were able to register on two different dates at four different locations for geographical ease to the members. There was a great deal of volunteer time by many members and gyms. The registration went great and we have many extremely competent athletes preparing to compete in this prestigious event which advances to NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS!!! (Complete details forthcoming.)
I would like to personally thank Vice President and J.O. Chair Pastor Dave Price, Tournament Director Johnny Rivera, Chief of Officials Jamil Ali and Coach Marshall Kauffman for their assistance and allowing us to use their facilities for registration. We should all thank Buddy Osborn (Rock Ministry) for volunteering the use of his gym for our Tournament; as well as Bill Kane (Wardogs Boxing) for donating the use of his ring. You two gentlemen are to be commended for your selfless efforts in assisting our LBC, specifically our youth boxers.
Every single registered Middle Atlantic Association member was emailed a copy of the bracket sheets for this Tournament. If you did not receive the email, your email address is incorrect in the USA Boxing database and you need to address that by logging in and changing the address. The brackets were completed using a computer program designed specifically for Random Tournament Draws and Bracketing. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY REGISTERED, YOU CANNOT ENTER THE TOURNAMENT. The Tournament dates are Friday, May 1st and Saturday, May 2nd. Semi-finals and Match bouts will be on Friday; Championships and Match bouts will be on Saturday. Walkover Champions will receive their awards on Saturday.
