Sheriff's Youth Boxing Team

Y.A.F. sponsors a non-profit boxing team that was started by long-time posse member Walt Hoskins in April 1987. This program was created to give boys ages 8 through 18 a positive alternative to gangs and drugs. The program’s main goals are to teach boys about commitment, discipline, and team work, as well as to provide an excellent resource for building and maintaining self-esteem and confidence. The team relies on funding from the Y.A.F. for equipment as well as expenses associated with numerous tournaments they attend each year. In conjunction with the Youth Assistance Foundation, this boxing program has built a solid foundation and is growing rapidly every day.
