WEIGHT CLASSES
The weight classes shall be the approved weight classes of USA Boxing for all age groups (see www.usaboxing.org).   There will be a novice and open class for all age/weight classes.  We do reserve the right to adjust some weigh/age classes to ensure unopposed boxers get to box. 



AGE DETERMINATION DATE
February 16. 2018

MATCHMAKING
Matches will be made based on the weight you declare on the entry form on the Hometown Heroes Boxing website.  If you fail to make the weight you declare, you will be disqualified, however, we will make every effort to match you in the weight class you make.   
Matches will be posted on the website www.hometownheroesboxing.us by Feb. 12.  We follow this procedure so boxers do not have to arrive a day early for a weigh declaration and draw which will save on room and food expenses for teams.  If coaches prefer a draw at the event, we will comply with this at the 2019 championships.     

Please be aware that sometimes it is impossible to match everyone due to age and weight differences.  However, we will make every effort to match all boxers even if it requires that  we adjust some age/weight divisions.  Our purpose is to box and not eliminate boxers before the beginning of the competition.

AWARDS
•         Winners will receive a HHB logo championship belt and HHB logo gold medal.
•         Runners-up will receive a  HHB logo silver medal.

Unopposed boxers will not be awarded a championship belt but will be awarded a gold medal and refunded $25 from their entry fee provided they attend the event.  If they choose to not attend the event, they will be refunded their $30 entry fee.

OFFICIALS All officials (referees, judges, timekeepers, and clerks) must be currently registered with USA Boxing and certified.
