The Pennsylvania Golden Gloves has been in existence for the past 40 years. We are a member of the Golden Gloves Association of America, which has been in existence for the past 89 years.
The main goal of our organization is to give the athletes of Pennsylvania the opportunity to become a State, National and International Champion.

In 1996, David Reid, one of our Pennsylvania Golden Gloves State Champions won the only gold medal for the United States at the Olympic Games in Atlanta. In 2004 Pennsylvania Golden Gloves Champions Rock Allen and Chazz Witherspoon were alternate members of the olympic team. In 2011 Arturo Trujullio of Easton and Jesse Hart of Philadelphia won Gold medals. In 2013, Stephen Fulton of Philadelphia won gold and Tyrone Arzeno of Allentown and Kyrone Davis of Delaware won silver medals at the nationals in Salt Lake City Utah. Our team tied for third place. In 2014 in Las Vegas Nv. Christian Carto won gold and Jaron Ennis won silver and our team tied for 4th place. In 2015 Jaron Ennis and Darmoni Rock won Gold while Paul Kroll won silver.
