Golden Gloves of America, Inc. and it’s member franchises have been providing opportunities for young athletes to develop lifetime skills since their first tournament in 1923.

It takes hundreds of administrators, trainers, coaches and counselors to spend countless time and effort to assist these young people in the development of their athletic skills.

According to the Golden Gloves web site, “The Golden Gloves program has led the way in promoting amateur boxing in the United States and has produced the majority of competitors for America’s boxing teams in the Pan-Am and Olympic Games.”

The Golden Gloves tournament runs through July 19.  Competitors ages 9-16 will compete in age/weight brackets each night beginning at 6 p.m.  Doors open at 5 p.m.

Semi-Finalists will compete Wednesday, July 16 through Friday, July 18 beginning at 6 p.m. with final rounds being held on Saturday, July 19 at 6 p.m.

Ticket information can be found by visiting www.casablancaresort.com ; a full schedule of GGA activities can be found at: http://www.jrgoldengloves.com/2014%20forms/2014%20TOURNAMENT%20SCHEDULE.pdf

Don’t like boxing?  How about supporting our Mesquite Manta Rays?  The Manta Rays swim team will be hosting a two day tournament this weekend at the Mesquite Recreation Center outdoor pool.

The meet will begin on Friday, with warm ups starting at 3 p.m., and will finish on Saturday at 8 a.m.

According to Nicholas Montoya, Associate Director of the Department of Leisure Services, “We will have around 90 of our own swimmers from the Mesquite Manta Ray swim team participating in the Swim Meet.”  Montoya also states, “The outdoor pool will be closed to the general public on Friday, July 18 at 2 p.m. and Saturday, July 19 until the meet is over.  We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause any one; but our indoor pool will be open at the regular times during the event.”

You can’t beat a day at the pool to ward off the heat but if that’s not enough for you…

Don’t miss out on the city’s Splash Pad located at the Sport and Event Complex, 1635 Bertha Howe Ave.  It’s a great way to stay cool and have fun for FREE!

Remember to send all your meeting, events or entertainment information to tphilswife@aol.com; I’ll help you spread the word.
