BOXING AND PUBLIC SAFETY
Boxing, like all DSAL recreational health and fitness programs, is a vital component in our goal to develop a new model of public safety and reinvest in our least served communities.
By providing safe, inclusive boxing programs and a safe gym to train, Ashland and Cherryland youth, teens and adults have flocked to join as there is a dramatic lack of sporting opportunities in the neighborhood. For many, boxing serves a stabilizing force to graduate high school.
The strategic and careful investment into play, recreation and health works in concert with DSAL's alike community inputs to build a safer Alameda County according to the Community Capitals Public Safety Framework.
