Fight For Peace
The Fight For Peace program is the Bermuda Boxing Federation’s vision for addressing the number of prevailing social issues which we have seen manifest in our community.
Fight For Peace is an internationally recognized and research based program with proven results. This program was initially developed in the favelas of Brasil, and has been successful both in the streets of downtown Kingston, Jamaica and in urban areas of England.
It uses boxing and martial arts combined with education and personal development to realise the potential of young people in communities affected by crime and violence. The pillars of the program are Boxing and Martial Arts, Education, Youth Leadership, Employability and Social Support.
Boxing Development Program
The Bermuda Boxing Federation supports the development of children 14 years and under through allocating equipment at no cost, sponsoring children who may come from families without the means to afford monthly training and by hosting youth focused events. Through these events the Boxing Development Program aims to highlight our younger athletes and to encourage both boys and girls to become involved in boxing at an early age.
National Boxing Team
The National Boxing Team represents our island in international boxing events with the goal of Bermuda once again achieving Olympic success.
