A.: First and foremost BCBA is a youth facility. We focus our efforts
on giving our local youth a facility where they can train, develop
structure and discipline through physical fitness and sports programs.
Though we are a private center, it is our goal that BCBA
grows into a full-fledge community center offering an array of sports and programs designed to Educate, Motivate & Inspire.
What programs does BCBA offer for adults and youth?
A. At BCBA we are not looking to build better fighters. Our
D.R.I.F.T. Youth Empowerment Programs are designed to build better young
men and women. Sport is just the vehicle we use to reach our
kids. The reality is you can't build a better athlete until you build
a better person. Our D.R.I.F.T. Curriculum is designed to do just
that! As we grow and fund raising efforts bare fruit BCBA plans to expand its offerings. We hope to become place where
our D.R.I.F.T. graduates can learn some of the most cutting edge computer
and technology courses. In addition we will offer
a GED assistance program for those in our community who (for whatever reason) did not graduate High School.
To help offset the cost of running our D.R.I.F.T.
Youth Empowement Programs, BCBA offers personalized one-on-one boxing/martial arts & fitness
training programs for adults. Our adult programs are run SEPERATE from our youth programs. Typically they are run between the hours of 6pm and 9pm. We ask adults (18 and over) to drop by so we may personally address all your training and fitness needs.
