Heavy Hitters USA - 367 Bank Street, New London, CT - (860) 444-2845


Heavy Hitters USA is a 501(c) non-profit organization established in New London, Connecticut to provide after-school and early evening boxing, wrestling, and conditioning programs for kids and young adults from New London and surrounding towns.  At the present time, we have over fifty (50) kids between the ages of ten and eighteen years old signed up for Heavy Hitters membership.  The kids are not charged fees if they are in school and meet certain criteria for behavior in school, in the gym, and on the "streets" of their respective towns.  Boxing and strength training are very appealing to kids and your adults, and when these participants are in a gym surrounded by adults from various backgrounds and professions, very positive things happen.

In our program, we teach the young people how to develop positive attitudes and good work ethics.  Using principals of athletics, we have an opportunity to teach them how to make sound decisions concerning sports as well as everyday life.  We are a small part of the community and stand to reinforce the concepts of education, school athletics, and career opportunities that the young people have heard from teachers and advisors.

Community organizations such as Heavy Hitters not only offer a deterrent for at risk behavior but also serve as a progressive and productive alternative which in turn insures the welfare and success of the community.  However, in order to survive, local businesses, organizations and corporations must understand the importance of providing safe haven for inner-city and disadvantaged youth.

Thank you in advance for any support you may be able to provide us.

Best regards,
Kent Ward
