New or returning members must enroll for the 2020-2021 BTS membership prior to attending any BTS events or training sessions.  To enroll for 2020-2021 membership, please click HERE 

Our priority is the safety and well-being of our student-athletes, staff, and community.  We have worked with and reviewed safety protocols from USA Wrestling, NFHS, PSAL, and the CDC. 

Our Beat the Streets NYC Governance Chair has approved limited physical contact between student-athletes in training center workouts begining Monday, October 26th.  This physical contact includes wrestling specific skills such as handfighting and games such as ankle band tag.  We are very excited to take one step closer to returning to full wrestling, but we recognize that safety is still our top priority.  Please be sure to read through the entire updated safety protocols document below thoroughly.  

As always, training center participation is voluntary and co-ed.  All student-athletes may participate how they feel most comfortable while maintaining a safe environment.  Please review the ways student-athletes may engage in training center workouts below:  

  1. Virtual via Zoom (Cross Training & Shadow Wrestling)
  2. In-Person Socially Distanced - No Contact (Cross Training & Shadow Wrestling)
  3. In-Person with Physical Contact (Cross Training & Handfighting)

Beginning 11/23/20, Beat the Streets NYC will resume virtual training center practices.  This transition is due to the incline in Covid19 cases nationally as well as season changes including the colder weather and early sunset.
