RULES

USA Boxing requires all boxers to get a physical exam every year and be cleared to participate.

Beginning June 1, 2016, all athlete members shall have proof of a current annual sports physical attached to their passbook to be able to compete in USA Boxing sanctioned events. Please refer to the list of disqualifying conditions.  (http://go.teamusa.org/1sQ1Bee)

On our website is a form that can be used for the yearly physical exam (http://go.teamusa.org/1TM53xv) however other forms are acceptable:

  • The annual medical exam form previously released by USA Boxing;
  • Annual sports exams approved by states for use in their primary school systems or colleges;
  • Forms required by state boxing commissions (California is an example);

Be sure that whatever form you use, it is completed and signed by a physician (MD or DO), signed by the athlete (and legal guardian if under 18 years old) and it states clearly “cleared for contact sports” or “cleared for all sports.”  Attach a copy of the physical or the “Annual Physical Signature Page” to your passbook (inside, back cover). You may want to keep an additional copy for your records. Per our rules, exams will not be accepted if done by Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Dentists, Chiropractors, EMT’s or other non-physician medical providers.

If you’ve had a physical (as described above) within the last year, place a copy in your passbook and it will be accepted as your annual physical for 2017.
