Greetings from the Florida State Golden Gloves Franchise;
You are receiving this communication because you are considered a valued member of the Golden Gloves community. It is my distinct pleasure to inform you of a new era in Florida State Golden Gloves, beginning now.
The Florida Golden Gloves franchise will break new ground in 2015. In past years only one, annual event was held in the State of Florida – to field a representative team for the Golden Gloves Nationals. To allow more participation and give more talent the opportunity to shine, a handful of sanctioned, “Qualifier” events will be added to the Florida Golden Gloves schedule.
During 2015 these qualifier events will take place during the first three months of the year, leading up to the State Championships in late March. In future years, we will expand this schedule and sanction more qualifiers throughout the year. But for now, we will concentrate on the first few quality events.
What is a Qualifier?
A Florida Golden Gloves Sanctioned Qualifier is a one day event/show where Elite/Open Boxers can earn a seeded position at the Florida State Golden Gloves Championship Tournament. By winning their bout in a sanctioned Qualifier, Elite/Open boxers move themselves one step closer to representing the State of Florida as a member of the National Team. Juniors, novice, women & masters may also compete in these shows as preparation for the State Championships.
If interested in hosting one of the sanctioned qualifiers for 2015 or in future years, give us a call and make your intentions known. If you have questions or need additional information we will be happy to discuss the program in greater detail.
We are anxious to solidify the schedule of 2015 qualifiers by the beginning of November, 2014. If you wish to be considered as a qualifier host, please contact me at your earliest convenience.
