Duties Of Coach

I. General

A. Submit a tentative team list to the CIC prior to the first practice session. Before the first scheduled record contest submit a finalized team roster on the "Intramural Record of Participation" form. The CIC will keep the form for the entire season. It is the coaches responsibility to keep it current.

B. Make sure that all boxers are eligible and are medically cleared to box (Appendix B).

C. Know all rules as they appear in the "INTRAMURAL BOXING MANUAL".

D. Insure proper use of heavy bags and supervise sparring. SPARRING WILL NOT BE DONE OUTSIDE OF THE RINGS. BAG GLOVES WILL NOT BE USED TO SPAR. COACHES WILL BE PRESENT AT ALL TIMES WHEN INTRA-COMPANY SPARRING TAKES PLACE. DPE INSTRUCTOR MUST ALSO BE PRESENT. All safety equipment (headgear etc) must be worn when sparring—even if boxers are controlled sparring drills.

Devoted as I am to popularizing amateur boxing and to improving the caliber of this particularly desirable competitive sport, I am highly enthusiastic over John Walsh's boxing instruction book. No one in the United States today can equal John's record as an amateur boxer and a coach. He is highly regarded as a sportsman. Before turning to coaching and the practice of law John was one of the most successful college and Golden Gloves boxers the sport has ever known.
