Welcome to the Official Website of the Cleveland Area Golden Gloves!
Since 1923, the Golden Gloves of America, Inc. has established itself as the premier amateur boxing organization in the United States, producing the majority of competitors for America’s boxing teams in the Olympic and Pan-Am Games.
Cleveland has held a local tournament in conjunction with the National Golden Gloves of America since 1928. The Cleveland Area Golden Gloves Not For Profit Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. We believe in utilizing the sport of boxing to instill within our youth a sense of self-respect and discipline, guiding and shaping lives in order to mold productive citizens equipped with the skills and support they need to accomplish their goals both inside and outside of the ring. Together with local coaches, trainers and counselors, we have helped thousands of amateur boxers across Northeast Ohio to work towards and to often achieve their dreams of competition and championships.
Each year, the CAGG actively supports our boxers as they progress in their amateur careers. This is specifically accomplished by sponsoring our local tournament and by sending our team of local champions across the United States to represent our area in the National Tournament.
I encourage you explore our website to learn more about our organization, and how you can make difference in the lives of local Golden Gloves boxers.
I also invite you to attend The 87th Annual Cleveland Area Golden Gloves Qualifying Tournaments at the City of Brook Park Recreation Center (17400 Holland Road, Brook Park) throughout the month of April, 2015.
