Last Chance Qualifier – 2020 Olympics Tokyo

The Visit Oxnard Team is looking forward to having you for USA Boxing’s 2019 Last Chance Qualifier, this November 1-9, 2019, in Oxnard, California. We are so excited for our renewed partnership with National Police Atheletic/Activities Leagues, Inc. (PAL), Oxnard PAL and USA Boxing and are excited to welcome the most elite boxers in the sport to our beautiful coastal city.

Rich in the boxing tradition, Oxnard even has an appropriate nickname – “Boxnard.” Oxnard is a national hub for boxing and is home to many amateur and professional boxers, some of whom have been born and raised within the city limits, and others who have moved to Oxnard specifically to train.

While you’re here, pursuing your dreams, punching your ticket to the 2020 Olympic Trials for Boxing in December, take time to delight in our hidden gem of a town, where the U.S. 101 meets Pacific Coast Highway – California cool, panorama-perfect, culturally authentic and vibrant beyond measure. Just sixty miles northwest of LAX and in close proximity to Santa Barbara and other major destinations, Oxnard is one of California’s best kept secrets.

THINGS TO DO in Oxnard, California

Oxnard is home to miles of pristine white sand beaches, electric nightlife, some of the best taquerias in the state, historic Victorian era architecture, the California Strawberry Festival, and an expansively picturesque harbor that serves as the closest access point to the Channel Islands National Park. Board an excursion to one of the Channel Islands, just eleven miles off the coast from Oxnard, where you’ll discover a world untouched at “North America’s Galapagos.” Spend the day diving, kayaking, swimming, hiking, camping or exploring deep sea caves; see wildlife found nowhere else on planet Earth.

Return to Oxnard to rejuvenate: shop the incredible boutiques at The Collection at RiverPark, Oxnard’s premier lifestyle venue. Oxnard like a local, and take in one of the breathtaking sunsets along the shore, which are particularly spectacular in the fall and winter months. We invite you to relax, unwind and enjoy this beach town filled with unique experiences and passionate people. Roll with the punches during the tournament, and take time to coast in Oxnard. We look forward to welcoming you. Your California dream awaits.
