    “Beat the Streets gives us a lot of opportunities that you can’t get anywhere else. We have SAT
    Prep, we get to go to tournaments, and the people there really care about you.”

    - Tavion, junior

    “Not a lot of people are able to stick with such an intense sport like wrestling, but I’ve slowly
    fallen in love with it. I love to win and I love to learn from my experiences.”

    Building Strength in NYC Youth Since 2005

    Back in 2005, a small group of passionate wrestlers had a vision centered around the idea that if the lessons learned on the wrestling mat-- a strong work ethic, grit, perseverance, self-reliance, humility-- are applied to other areas of life, then so much more can be achieved in a lifetime.
