Physicals are good for one year from date they were given. For example, if a boxer received a physical on September 6, 2018, that physical will be good until September 5, 2019.
Physicals may now be signed by a physician's assistant or a nurse practitioner, except in those states where the State Athletic Commission requires a doctor's signature. ( these are added to MD and OD)
As a reminder, it is our preference that boxers use the physical exam form attached here. However, it is not mandatory at this time and other forms are acceptable.
As of now for Coaches there is no Level 2 certification.
AIBA has developed a 1, 2, and 3 "STAR " certification system that all countries must recognize in order for coaches to participate in an AIBA sponsored event. A coach must pass a certification test administered by an AIBA international clinician to become an AIBA 1-Star in order to work a corner or be involved in an AIBA sanctioned event domestically or internationally.
At the USA domestic level we presently have 1, 2, 3, and 4. These domestic levels are not recognized by AIBA Star system. We are presently organizing the USA levels and will combine them into a domestic level 1 and level 2. There will no longer be levels 3 and 4.
Level 1 will continue to be centered around safety and risk management but will be more specific to include concussion protocol and basic boxing fundamentals and skills. It is our intent to have Level 1 re-certification available on line.
The Level 2 certification will be more comprehensive to include materials from levels 2, 3, and 4. We will design this level to parallel the AIBA 1-Star and prepare our coaches to progress from domestic-only participation to AIBA sponsored events.
At the present time only the current domestic level 1 coach certification is available. Clinicians will be identified by the National Office in conjunction with LBC presidents.
