The IRONBOUND Boxing Academy is located in the IRONBOUND Neighborhood of Newark, NJ. We are located at 226 Rome St. In the back of the Sharpe James and Kenneth Gibson Recreation Center.
Membership to the IRONBOUND Boxing Academy is free of charge. However, all members are required to obtain a recreational I.D. for one year fee of 5 dollars (local residents), and 15 dollars (non-newark residents). The I.D. gives you access not only to the Academy but the recreational center as a whole.
Everyone will be required to spar at some point during their training. In order to do so, all athletes must register with USA Boxing. Registration is 65 dollars per athlete. We encourage all our athletes to complete registration with USA boxing within 30 days of joining the Academy. For those who are unable to afford the registration fee, we will assist you as best we can.
We are constantly in need of volunteer coaches and funds to help cover the cost for all our kids to train free. As a nonprofit organization, we are constantly seeking funds to help cover the training cost of all our athletes.
