Beat the Streets New York Academy application opens for 2023-24 season
The application process is open until Sept. 17 for New York City middle school and high school student-athletes.
The Academy is for New York City middle school and high school student-athletes looking to succeed in wrestling, graduate high school and pursue post-secondary study. The program will meet from 5-7:30 p.m. every Thursday from Sept. 28 to Nov. 16.
Academy nights will feature a guest speaker and a wrestling practice session. Guest speakers cover important life skills and leadership topics to help student-athletes excel off the mat. Past clinicians and speakers have included former Olympic champions, U.S. World Championship team members, NCAA men's and women's coaches and champions and more!
