The mission of the Aquinas Boxing Program is to provide a positive influence in the physical and emotional development of each student participating in the program, in a way that is safe, fun and encourages academic achievement.
The Aquinas Mission Bouts is not to be confused with professional boxing. Instead, we at Aquinas follow the rules of amateur boxing and apply additional rules to make the program safer. Participants are provided with headgear, gloves, hand wraps, custom fit mouthpieces, and foul protectors. Controlled spars, and matching boxers based on skill level, style, and weight, are other ways in which Aquinas protects its boxers.
The season stresses training and conditioning, which is essential to the sport of boxing. Our training will provide the students with a means to gain strength, flexibility, and endurance. Boxing at Aquinas is used to educate the student and help them prepare for future years by building their self-confidence, teaching them to control their emotions inside and outside of the ring, and how hard work pays off.
