USA Boxing has named Lively Minds Tutoring as their preferred academic support company for all of USA Boxing’s High Performance Team boxers while at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
This partnership will allow USA Boxing to use Lively Minds Tutoring services during the numerous training camps held throughout the year for our High Performance team members. These services include any tutoring, GRE, GED, resume, cover letter or life skills assistance, including time management, money management, etc., that is needed for the boxers on site at the OTC during training camp.
“USA Boxing is thrilled to embark on this landmark partnership with Lively Minds Tutoring to provide unparalleled academic support for USA Boxing’s High Performance Team Athletes,” stated National Teams Manager Jess Luscinski, who made this partnership possible. “This partnership with Lively Minds Tutoring provides one on one academic support and life skills lessons to athletes across all of USA Boxing’s Junior, Youth and Elite National Teams while training on site at the U.S. Olympic Training Center and competing for Team USA.”
Working with Lively Minds Tutoring ensures that USA Boxing is investing in the “whole” athlete. Once boxers become part of the High Performance team, they have access to athletic, academic and life skill resources as part of an environment where athletes are encouraged to complete and grow their education both in sport and in life.
“USA Boxing is committed to building champions inside and outside the ring,” said Mike McAtee, USA Boxing Executive Director. “Partnering with Lively Minds we get the opportunity to help our young boxers to continue and support their education endeavors during their time in Colorado Springs.”
USA Boxing is dedicated to providing the highest academic support possible while our student-athletes are in Colorado Springs, and Lively Minds Tutoring will help accomplish these goals.
“We are thrilled to form this partnership with USA Boxing. We want our students to have every opportunity to succeed in life, and we are happy to open doors through education,” stated Candace Heiken, President of Lively Minds Tutoring. “Helping these accomplished athletes also achieve success in the academic arena is very rewarding, and we look forward to what we will be able to achieve together with USA Boxing in the future.”
This partnership will give over 100 boxers of USA Boxing’s High Performance Team the opportunity to use Lively Minds Tutoring for their academic endeavors each year.
Lisa Banegas, one of Lively Minds tutors that has worked with many of our athletes this year stated, “The athletes of USA Boxing are elite in every way. They possess a goal-driven outlook in life, inside and outside the ring. Providing tutoring to better tune these boxers for success academically is an honor and a privilege.”
USA Boxing is looking forward to helping improve the lives of our boxers inside and outside the ring, and expect Lively Minds Tutoring to have a huge impact.
