Our Mission

Building a Community of Champions


The Jack Costello Boxing Club is a 501(c)3  nonprofit organization that improves the health, self-esteem and character of Philadelphia youth through structured athletic training. 

Who We Are

Our U.S.A. Boxing certified coaches and staff use the discipline, structure and work ethic of boxing to build confident, positive young community members. We strive to provide a supportive, inclusive environment for competitive and non-competitive boxers. By building character and instilling positive values we help our athletes develop the qualities of great champions, both in and out of the boxing ring. The Club fosters a healthy, hard-working and ethical community spirit among our participants that extends outside of our gym walls. We partner with community organizations to provide our athletes with the opportunity to help others and experience first-hand the satisfaction of contributing positively to the world around them.

Our Vision

The Jack Costello Boxing Club’s vision for the future is that all Philadelphia youth will value their health and will have the confidence and tools to be a positive force within their community.
