2020 NATIONAL HOMETOWN HEROES BOXING CHAMPIONSHIPS
In view of USA Boxing's suspension of all boxing events, the Hometown Heroes Boxing Championships scheduled for March 13-14-15 is hereby cancelled. We are mandated to comply with all USA Boxing decisions. We will try to reschedule at a later date. Please notify your boxers so they can notify their parents. I do not want anyone making the trip only to find out there is no event. I am so sorry about this and the late notice by USA Boxing especially right before the weekend.

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 age/weight classes to provide unopposed boxers the opportunity to box.
AGE DETERMINATION DATE
March 13, 2020
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 March 7. We follow this procedure so boxers do not have to arrive a day early for a weight declaration and draw which will save on room and food expenses for teams.
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.
• Winners will receive a HHB logo championship belt and a HHB logo gold medal.
• Runners-up will receive a HHB logo silver medal.
Unopposed boxers will not be awarded a championship belt and the entry fee will be refunded.
OFFICIALS All officials (referees, judges, timekeepers, and clerks) must be currently registered with USA Boxing and certified.
COACHES Coaches must be currently registered with USA Boxing and certified. Coaches must have their 2020 Passbooks in order to receive credentials. Only three (3) coaches per team will receive credentials to enter the venue.
