The Golden Gloves is the name given to annual competitions for amateur boxing in the United States. It’s no surprise that Pittsburgh, and Western Pennsylvania produced some of the nation’s grittiest fighters over the past 100 years. Fighters from the area have made a name for themselves fighting on the national stage. Our boxers train year round to participate.
Western Pennsylvania Police Athletic Leagues' decades-old history is founded on the principle that the police and the communities they serve both benefit when they have positive and productive relationships with one another.
