The Charlotte Boxing Academy was created in 1987 and is a non-profit organization. The CBA has a partnership with Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation (MCPR), Police Athletic League (PAL) and Gang of One. We are a member of USA Boxing, INC, the national governing body for all amateur boxing in the United States. The coaching staff, as well as the boxers, are also members of USA Boxing.


Our mission is clear and simple - HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE GROW. Amateur boxing is a safe and rewarding sport. Our coaching staff mentors, monitors academics, behavior and appearance. USA Boxing also has a number of scholarship programs to financially assist in furthering their education.


Our motto is, ‘We are young ladies and gentlemen FIRST, students SECOND and athletes THIRD. Our aim is to help develop the whole person, not just their athletic abilities.
