We want to provide a safe space for youths in our East Vancouver community and beyond to discover their strength, expression, and resilience through sport. We use the sport of boxing to create a platform where youth and families in need can be connected to valuable community resources via our non-profit partner, NICCSS.inquire now
Historically, the sport of boxing has always been accessible for all income levels. However, the rising costs of living in Vancouver has rendered the sport inaccessible to many. Our program aims to solve that issue, while being intentional about providing value to youths and their families beyond the ring.
All below projects, plus staff salaries, equipment competition fees, travel expenses, and more are paid for by the One Ambition program.
Donations help us continue to afford this program.
Youths aged 10- 16 years old with any experience level are welcome to our Juniors classes. Youths will work on biomechanics and basic boxing skills through drills and games.

NICCSS provides some additional funding and an on-site youth worker via their Roving Leaders program. This allows youth to be supplied with gift cards for food, bus passes, and other essentials. The youth worker also connects youth in need with additional services like food aid, child minding, and tutoring services.
