About Us

KayoThe Kent Athletic Youth organization was founded by the late Kim Botterill in 1989. Kim was a former Provincial Champion that had vision to “Aid Our Area Youth Through Physical Fitness”. This was his club mission statement and goal to help young people in Chatham-Kent. The KAYO Boxing Club has been located in several areas throughout Chatham but now currently rests at 300 Lacroix St. and has been at the current location for over 5 years. The KAYO Boxing Club has developed several Provincial Champions but can only boast one National Senior Champion, Aimee Willimot.
