The program started from the idea of now retired Riverside Police Detective. He partnered with UCR’s Highland Gloves Boxing Club, and in 2014 the established the successful program known as Raincross Boxing Academy, to create a free boxing program for students, their families, and professional and amateur boxers that included community service and education in Riverside, CA.
The Raincross Boxing Academy program is designed to instill discipline, community involvement, and a healthy lifestyle for the at-risk youth of Riverside. The organization serves our community and students through community events and weekly tutoring and workouts with students in the Riverside Unified School District. The gym is the proud home to over twenty professional and amateur boxers. This is a FREE boxing program, so be sure to visit Raincross Boxing Academy’s website for more information.
School Before Sports is one of our mottos. Youth boxing members will have the opportunity to tutor with one of our UCR students as part of the membership.
