    DOVER, NH – The Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce recently welcomed Jass Boxing of Berwick, Maine, as a new member with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the chamber offices in Dover. Jass Boxing is a nonprofit organization that helps build self-esteem through the art of amateur boxing while teaching discipline, teamwork, and commitment to youth ages seven and older. In January 2020 Jass Boxing will host the Northern New England Golden Gloves Amateur Boxing Tournament at Tri-City Christian Academy in Somersworth.
    Owner, coach and trainer Joe Siudut has been coaching and guiding youth for more than 15 years and is licensed by USA Boxing. “We strive to provide a fun, educational, and safe environment in which to learn boxing, whether it’s for fitness, channeling aggression, or competition,” he says. “Our intention is not to develop champions, but to cultivate respect, self-control, and an overall healthy lifestyle.”
    Jass Boxing works with a variety of neighboring youth outreach programs and many of their students have had troubled pasts. Their goal is to ensure that these young people do not return to that way of life.
    “One of our requirements is that our students remain in school,” says Siudut, “because we want them to have rewarding and productive futures. Our students are also encouraged to further their education by attending local colleges, universities or trade schools.”
    Boxers can be sponsored annually for a cost of $500. This includes wraps, mouth guard, and gym membership for one year. For more information contact Jass Boxing at 603-978-9563 or info@jassboxing.org, or visit them on line at jassboxing.org.
    The Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit association of businesses, professionals, individuals, and organizations working together to advance the economic well-being of its members and the community.
