HOME OF CHAMPIONS
The St. James Athletic Center is dedicated to educating and training youth in the sports of amateur boxing, martial arts, and combat conditioning. We seek to instill the values of dedication, discipline, perseverance, and comradeship through intense training, competition, and community outreach.
ABOUT THE CLUB
The St. James Boxing Club (SJBC) is a non-profit organization in Elkhart, Indiana. The boxing club is led by trainers Larry Young and Eva Jones Young and has been serving youth in Elkhart, Mishawaka, Goshen, and South Bend for over 40 years. The main purpose of the SJBC has been to train youth in the sport of amateur boxing, which is achieved through intense training several days a week and competition in amateur tournaments.
Our mission is made possible in part by the generous donation of the Elkhart Community Foundation through a Good Neighbor Grant.
