Registration Now Open for 2021 USA Boxing National Championships
by USA Boxing
Registration for the 2021 USA Boxing National Championships, scheduled Dec. 5-11 in Shreveport, La., is now open. Boxers have until Nov. 22 to complete their online registration.
The 2021 USA Boxing National Championships will be for boxers in the bantam to elite division. Complete age determination can be found in the information sheet here. Additional information, such as weight class and bout requirement information, can be found here.
As a reminder, Boxers must upload all current documents (birthdate, citizenship and physical) verified and uploaded to their membership profile, as well as the minimum bout requirement in their matchtracker in order to register for this event. Please allow a minimum one full business day from uploading documents to be verified by USA Boxing before contacting USA Boxing Membership Services. Members must upload their own documents.
For the first time, registered boxers may be able to make changes to their weight classes online through their membership. USA Boxing Membership Services will not be making changes to weight classes for boxers, all weight changes must be made online by boxer/coach.
We highly recommend boxers register as soon as possible, as there are quotas on every weight class, and wait list will form for many weight classes.
Other important information to remember or consider:
While vaccines will not be required, proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours, will be required for all coaches, elite boxers, youth boxers and officials that will be taking part of these championships. Full COVID-19 policies can be found here.
Elite Boxers and Passports
USA Boxing highly encourages elite boxers boxing in the seven weight classes that will be considered for 2022 High Performance Team opportunities to begin the process to obtaining a passport if they do not have one already. It will be a very quick turnaround from Nationals to training camp and the first international competition, and boxers will need a passport in the first quarter of the year.
2022 High Performance Team
When registering for the event, please remember the recently announced 2022 High Performance Team selection procedures and what weight classes USA Boxing will be focusing on next year. These seven men’s weight classes and six women’s weight classes will be considered for both elite and youth boxers. Full youth selection procedures will be announced in the coming weeks.
All 13 men’s and 12 women’s weight classes will still be contested in Shreveport, however, only the seven and six weights are guaranteed to be considered for high performance opportunities.
