AIBA Passbook UpdateI have started to replace the white USA Boxing passbooks with blue AIBA-issued books. Boxers who are 15-40 will be receiving the new passbooks. JOs and Master boxers, as well as coaches/officials have not changed. I will return white passbooks in case boxers would like to keep them BUT only blue passbooks will be accepted for competition after they have been issued (returned books have been labeled "VOID"). Any questions please let me know!
STATE OF CONNECTICUT FORMS FOR CLUB RENEWALSThe first of the year is a busy time for paperwork. As well as renewing online with USA Boxing on the national website, usaboxing.org, there are State of CT forms due as well. The forms are available for download here.
The AMATEUR BOXING PROGRAM YEARLY REGISTRATION FORM is due in January of each year.
The FACILITY REGISTRATION FORM has a $100 fee and is used for those clubs that plan to hold a USAB sanctioned event in the club facility.
Det Mark Langlais, the Administrator of Boxing in the State of Connecticut, explains. As the regulatory agency, we here at DESPP oversee all regulatory issues for USA Boxing in Connecticut.
The FACILITY REGISTRATION FORM is required by any facility in which any USA Boxing registered club is going to hold an event in. This form is required to be signed off by the building inspector/official as well as the fire marshal indicating that they approve the facility for a boxing event. It is a yearly requirement but it is not necessary to renew or resubmit the form if you decide not to have a boxing event in the following year. I hope this helps and answers any questions you may have. If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to call or email me at the below listed contact numbers.

IMPORTANT MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION - CLUBS - 2014All clubs must register online with USA Boxing. This means the club representative must register/renew for 2014 before the club can be registered. The system will not accept a club registration unless the representative is registered. You will need a credit card in order to register your club.
Effective January 1, 2014: Only registered clubs will appear on the website as USA Boxing Member Gyms and only registered clubs will be announced at shows.
Thank you for your cooperation.
NEW FOR 2014 - GET YOUR FORGOTTEN PASSBOOK BACKPassbooks for the following boxers should be claimed by texting, calling or emailing Phyllis Roy and leaving the correct address for mailing.
You should do this immediately because there is no longer a priority/emergency on returning forgotten passbooks in time for a show. It will take several days to receive the passbook via snail-mail. The passbook may also be picked up at Phyllis' convenience.
NEW REQUIREMENT - ANNUAL ATHLETE PHYSICALSThe USA Boxing National Office/Membership Services sent a memo November 5th stating that all athletes must have an annual physical by July 1, 2014.
A copy of the completed physical (Medical Certificate) must be kept in the athlete's passbook and available at each competition.
The three forms that make up the Medical Certificate are available here.
