we’re making great boxers and even greater people


When I got here, I made actual, real friends. Like, the people in this gym are like family to me. They have your back inside of the ring, outside of the ring. Like, your friends, your family. I know I can trust anyone in this gym.
— Rodolpho, Off the Ropes' Youth Competitive Boxer

Off the Ropes' youth programs help develop essential skills such as goal-setting, self esteem and leadership.

Off the Rope's works with over 120 youth participants in all of our programs and partnerships.

Junior Youth

basic boxing and motor skills, ethics, discipline, sportsmanship, and respect.

Tuesdays & Thursdays - 3:50 - 5:30 PM

Ages 8 - 16

Give your youngster the opportunity to practice the sweet science, and they’ll learn a lot more than just the proper way to throw a punch. Discipline, sportsmanship, and the value of hard work are all on the agenda for these young athletes.

This program focuses on teaching young athletes basic boxing and motor skills in a fun and interactive environment. While expanding individual athletic skills, the athletes will develop work ethic, resilience, personal character, pride and respect. This respect extends unconditionally to ALL people regardless of age, race, gender identity, sexuality, or socioeconomic status.

This program follows the Boulder Valley School District schedule - times may vary on holidays.

Competitive Youth

advanced boxing curriculum, live training scenarios, competitive focus


Tuesdays & Thursdays - 3:50 - 5:30 PM



As our athletes develop both in and out of the ring, they will be offered the opportunity to compete. This will include participation in local shows and tournaments held throughout the year to promote sense of community while providing young athletes an opportunity to showcase their talents.

The Competitive Youth program will challenge young athletes to find the next gear in their training with more advanced boxing techniques, and an introduction to live boxing training. Athletes will prepare for competition by first honing their boxing fundamentals, and then integrating those practices into live training. Though this program does have a focus on competition and practical application of principles, no athlete is required to compete.

Additional Requirements

Members of the Competitive Youth Program are required to volunteer at least one Saturday per month to maintain their membership. Duties may range from gym maintenance and cleaning, to staffing gym-sponsored events, and more.
