The Ontario Boxing Association

The OBA provides $5,000,000.00 insurance for their registered members as well as insurance during any of their competition world wide.
Negotiations are moving toward a stronger WBC CANADA. Any province wishing to join the WBC CANADA are invited to contact the OBA or Comsport for furtherance.
President, Greg Post

===================================

Independent Boxers

The OBA insurance is an agreement with the boxing clubs registered to the OBA. The fee for boxers & coaches helps offset any expenses incurred by the OBA. The fee of $55.00 per year is to accept the boxer under the club to which they are registering. The OBA's insurance is with the boxing clubs & not with the boxers. The boxers are covered under their club's registration. If the club no longer registers, then the boxers are not insured under the OBA insurance.

NEW CLUBS & PARTICIPANTS WELCOME TO THE OBA

The OBA is a growing body that started in 1946 & was resurrected Jan. of 2006 to offer clubs & boxers an alternative to participate with equal & fair treatment.

If you have participated in other contact sports, you can still participate in boxing with the OBA. Our sport requires medical fitness prior to participating & a doctor at all sporting events. The club fee is $550.00 per year & that provides insurance for the registered members & event site insurance with limitations. If $5,000,000.00 is not enough, you can add a ryder at a small cost to increase the liability coverage. Call the office for details.

The registration for boxers is $55.00 per calendar year. If the boxer is a new member & registering after September 15th, the fee is $80.00 & the registration will expire the next December 31st. Boxer registrations require: an OBA medical completed by a certified physician: under age parental or guardian approval: 2 identical photos (mall photo booths offer the best size), an OBA membership application form completed with proof of birth. All forms are available under 'forms' at the top left of this page.

Registrations for coaches is $55.00 per calendar year but if new & registering after September 15, the fee is $80.00 & will expire December 31st of the next year. If coaches have their certified copy of the NCCP program, it must be submitted upon registration. Without certification you have one year to complete the OBA certification requirements.

Training members, may work out without combat at a fee of $40.00 per calendar year - From Dec. 1 to Dec. 31 of the following year.

A license to host a boxing event is $200.00 per event plus $350.00 for the officials plus parking expense. $100.00 will be refunded if the match-making program is completed with birth dates, experience, names & clubs to the office by noon of the prior day. The request to hold an event can be made in writing but if the $550.00 is not received in the office, within 7 business days, you will not be guaranteed the event date. So when filling out an application to host a boxing event, be sure to include directions to the site, along with a phone number of the site that will be available if someone is delayed en route. Any special event must be arranged through the OBA office.

All clubs participate in the General Meetings & every club that has been a member for one year & has 3 active boxers registered, is a voting club. Interpretation is at the OBA Directors decision.

Remember, the OBA is here to help you with your boxing endeavours. If you want to go pro or amateur, we have the clubs & capable coaches to train you & guide you on your way.

If going to the Olympics is your goal, perhaps you need to review what Canada has done in boxing in the prior Olympics. 2008, one boxer from all of Canada went & he was accompanied by more coaches than participants. The boxer lost his first bout; however; he has accomplished more in his pro-boxing career. In 2012 Canada sent 3 boxers & they did not attribute to any fame. The dream of attending the Olympics is distant & not always a realistic goal fpr most athletes. The path there is full of obstacles & although my opinion, I find that a nice way to say 'good luck' instead of the more truthful words.

We welcome new members and allow everyone to address any executive with any problems.

Want to join - call OBA 905 356 9393 - a friendly association for boxers & their coaches.
