? The “THE FIVE BOUT RULE” is in effect in order for a boxer to proceed, a Boxer must have five bouts “ENTERING” the State Tournament to proceed to the Region One Championships. A Boxer who enters with four bouts and has their fifth during the tournament cannot proceed, this unfortunately is a national rule.

There will be “NO BOX-OFF” with Mass this year, boxers with five bouts or more who win or walk over their divisions will proceed straight to Lake Placid for the Region One Championships representing the CT J.O. Championship Team the Weekend of June 7-9.

Coaches please Text and or E-Mail me your J.O. Boxers (who have five or more bouts) names, ages & weighs immediately at: 860-918-2844 and or johnnycallas@cobaboxing.net as the Region One Director needs to start making arrangements for Lake Placid and most of our Open J.O.s will be un-contested

? Boxers will be divided into Open (five bouts or more) and Novice (zero to four bouts classes) for this tournament.

As many special J.O. bouts as possible will be made to give our J.O. Boxers much needed experience.

If Coaches can send me there list of J.O. Boxers as well as their ages and weights, ASAP, it will be helpful in establishing our Championship Team (as many won’t have contested bouts) and we can try to pre-match, un-contested classes into special bouts. Coaches can agree to match special bouts that cross between age groups as long as does not exceed twenty four months and is approved by CT-USA Boxing.

The age Divisions are as follows:

? Pee Wee: 8-10 (Can go directly to Nationals, Madison Wisconsin June 22-29)
? Bantam: 11-12
? Intermediate: 13-14
? Junior: 15 -16
? Youth: 17-18 (Not part of our J.O. Tournament and Can go directly to Nationals, Madison Wisconsin June 22-29)

We encourage all divisions from Pee Wee to Junior to participate in our 2019 CT - USA BOXING J.O. CHAMPIONSHIPS, as we have traditionally done all boxers who enter and are “Walk Over” Champions will receive a medal and those who compete in a contested class will receive “Champion & Runner-Up Trophies.” Boxers who have special bouts will also receive trophies. As stated we will also attempt to make as many matches as possible for those J.O. boxers who are Walk-Overs? Boxers who make the CT- USA Boxing J.O. Team and Coaches who plan on staying at the Olympic Training Center June 7-9 are required to provide an E-Mail address at the Olympic Training Center does all there paperwork over the computer now. CT USA Boxing will be paying the majority of the costs for its boxers and assigned team coaches to stay at the Olympic Training Center. The J.O. National Championships will take place in Madison Wisconsin June 22-29.
