The Beat the Streets Junior League is the only middle school wrestling league in New York City. In partnership with the Department of Education, we provide after-school programming for middle school kids in the form of practices and competitions focused on learning the basics of wrestling in a safe, fun environment. Six-week seasons take place in the fall, winter, and spring.
Boys and Girls High School
BTS provides PSAL Wrestling with tournament kits delivering score clocks and mats allowing schools to run their own tournaments. We sponsor the NYC Mayor’s Cup Tournament; the PSAL trip to the Eastern States Classic; and the NYC Gotham City Girls Open, one of the premier girls tournaments in the country.
Neighborhood Training Centers
BTS provides youth and high school students with after-school programming through neighborhood-based practices held year-round. These training centers create a sense of community and give our members consistent, caring mentors through our coaches.
BTS adds to students’ development off-the-mat through Wrestler’s Mark Curriculum and Awards - drawing parallels between wrestling and life, college visits, and SAT Prep and Regents Exam Tutoring. Through partnership with Varonis, our students have exclusive access to Life Skills Internships, Financial Skills Workshops, and additional tutoring.
The Academy provides opportunities to our most engaged members. Through consistent Training Center and Enrichment participation, our student-athletes earn scholarships to regional and national competitions as well as college-run sleepaway camps, where they enjoy wrestling training and off-the-mat education on topics such as college access and leadership training.
We provide on-site coach mentoring, online resources to improve their teaching technique, and seminars throughout the year. Our Coach Academy offers Team Grants to coaches that regularly attend our development seminars.
