Golden Gloves Makes Public School Debut
Source: Press Release
January 8, 2008

     
   
   
   
   

(JAN 8) Archimedes Academy at 456 White Plains Road in the Bronx @ the IS 174 Campus is the first New York City public school to host a “Daily News Golden Gloves” in history. Mark this date on your calendar, Friday, January 25, 2008, at 7 pm, when the greatest amateur boxers in New York will battle it out hoping to win a chance to box for a Golden Glove Championship in April at Madison Square Garden.

Archimedes Academy, an innovative new school that is geared to provide an intensive academic environment for students grades 6-12. The school takes its name from the great Greek mathematician, Archimedes. Archimedes is not only credited with developing an idea for a laser beam death ray and concepts dealing with infinity but is probably best known in modern society for coining the phrase Eureka. Archimedes Academy prides itself in promoting projects based and “hands on” modalities employing experiential based learning. This has been a primary rationale for Archimedes Academy to reintroduce boxing in the New York public school system.

New York City Public School Boxing was a an after-school that was left dormant without a sponsor until Archimedes brought public school boxing back into the schools in 2007. New York City Public School Boxing (NYCPSB) is now more than an after-school recreation program but an integral credit bearing course in the school’s physical education curricula. Under the leadership of the school’s Directors, Miriam Lazar, Aaron Schwartz and boxing teacher Matt Ruggero, NYCPSB is growing and becoming critical to the academic enrichment and physical training of the school’s students. The program’s inception some eight years ago made it the first boxing program in the history of the New York public school system. In 2006, two boxers made it to the finals the Golden Gloves in Madison Square Garden and one, Oswaldo Rivera won the Golden Gloves Championship in the novice lightweight division.

Archimedes’ Golden Gloves debut on January 25 also credits John E. Oden, Wall Street financier and author of White Collar Boxing with providing the necessary sponsorship to make it possible for the school to host its first Golden Gloves show and continue to provide boxing programming (John E. Oden Boxing Scholars) at the school. Our mission is to provide students with fitness training balanced in an environment of boxing scholarship and entrepreneurial knowledge in sports.
