Registration for the upcoming 2022 National Junior Olympics and Summer Festival, scheduled for July 9-16 in Wichita, Kan., is now open.

This event, which marks the 50th edition of the USA Boxing National Junior Olympics, will bring boxers from across the nation in the bantam, intermediate and junior divisions that has a rich history and has seen numerous Olympians compete in this tournament early in their career. 

Like last year, the National Junior Olympics will be an open registration for those boxers in the three divisions contested that meet the minimum bout requirement. Boxers that do not meet the minimum bout requirement may request a bout exemption here. Boxers and coaches that submit an exemption will be notified on or before June 21. 

The Summer Festival, which is in its second year, will expand on last year’s tournament, featuring boxers in five divisions: collegiate, elite, masters, pee wee and youth. 

This year’s Summer Festival will serve as another qualify for elite boxers to punch their ticket to the 2022 USA Boxing National Championships this December in Lubbock, Texas. Complete qualification guidelines can be found
here, and boxers that have already qualified to Nationals is published here. Boxers that have already qualified for Nationals may compete in the Summer Festival, but must compete in a weight different from the weight they have qualified in.
