The Cambridge Police Youth Boxing & Fitness Program is a collaboration between the Cambridge Police Family Social Justice Section & the Cambridge YMCA.

Starting in 2011, it has become a staple of the Cambridge community and a flagship program of the Cambridge Police Department.

Run by a Cambridge Police Officer, a Cambridge Police Department Social Worker, and with assistance from YMCA staff, we are a gender inclusive, non-contact, fitness based boxing program for Cambridge youth in grades 6-12.

We focus on: Self defense, physical & mental health, peer mentor-ship, relationship building, family support, social emotional learning, inclusion, individual growth in a group setting, accessibility, equity and FUN.

This is a FREE program & participants MUST register online and complete all forms. We meet every MONDAY & WEDNESDAY from 4:00 – 5:30pm at the Cambridge YMCA (820 Mass Ave.)

All equipment is provided however it is recommended to dress for a workout.
