2011 Hooks for Books Boxing Schedule

2011 Schedule...As we prepare the  2011 schedule there are a number of factors we must consider and we need your help.  These events are expensive and we are not meeting our goal of raising scholarship funds due to a lack of fan interest and in some cases a lock of student/boxer participation.  Students/boxers must start helping with publicity by talking to your fellow students, teachers and relatives about the events in your area in order to attract larger crowds and getting more students to participate.  I am going to post a survey form on this website entitled "Where Do You Want to Box" and  I sincerely hope you will complete it.  All events are open to school students ages 13 to 19 and college students.   Remember, this program is designed for you and we need your help.  Again, please lease complete the survey form.  Also, complete the form only if you are willing to box.  At the last event in Charleston, several people that signed up on line did not show up to box.  Likewise, at the last event at the Baileysville Community Center, we only had 6 boxing matches.  This makes it very difficult to sell to the public.

Mark, Hooks for Books Boxing hopes to hold an event in Logan sometime in January 2011. We will need some community help in organizing the event as this is a new territory for us. We wish to thank you for your interest and comment.

Cody, if we are able to do a Hooks for Books Boxing event in Logan, it will have to be after basketball season as the principal of LHS told me in a brief email, "During basketball season the fieldhouse is not available for rent."

Zack, Hooks for Books Boxing will pay the $45 USA Boxing membership fee if you cannot do so at this time. The membership is good for the rest of the year. We look forward to you competing in the championships at the Civic Center and wish you the best of luck.
