Our mission is to be the strongest alternative to gangs. We arm young people with the support and skills they need to restore their lives and improve their neighborhood. Crushers Club is rooted in four ideals—respect, discipline, ownership, and love—that give our members a fighting chance.
Working hard and following rules is everything. No swearing. No talking about others. Lots of sit-ups, push-ups, and sparring. Discipline is the only way to win both inside and outside the ring.
To get it, they have to give it. At all times. No excuses. Being a member of Crushers Club means treating everyone with the highest level of respect.
Crushers Club members learn to take charge of their lives and their futures. They alone own their actions and they alone own their victories.
Feeling loved is the only way to be able to love others and love yourself. Crushers Club provides the unconditional love and support these young men need as they fight to change their lives.
“The Crushers believe that discipline and hard work are required to win both inside and outside the ring.”
— Sally Hazelgrove, Crushers Club Founder
