THE JUNIOR LEAGUE
The Junior League is the only middle school wrestling league in New York City, providing after-school programming in the form of weekly practice and competition opportunities focused on teaching the basics of wrestling in a safe and fun environment.
The Junior League comprises a mix of school-based and community-based youth wrestling teams that practice two to five times a week. Practice schedules vary, as each program operates independently.
Each season, Junior League student-athletes participate in three Family Afternoon Match (FAM) Days, two mini tournaments, and one City Championship. In addition to wrestling, Beat the Streets also implements the Wrestler’s Mark Enrichment curriculum, in which common phrases or techniques used on the mat are translated to real-life learning scenarios off the mat.
