BtS Concludes 2nd Season of Competition!
Beat the Streets participants celebrated the end of the 2017-18 competitive season with a pot luck banquet for youth, Jr High and High School athletes.
The emphasis of BtS is to increase participation, have fun and build a community through wrestling that helps our participants succeed and reach new levels in their lives.
The banquet serves to show all our youth athletes of what they have to look forward to by continuing their journey through the sport and motivate our older wrestlers to give back to the next generation.
Though the competitive season has come to a close we still practice Monday and Wednesday from 6-730 at the Lancaster Rec Center. Keep coming, growing and getting better!
Inaugural LLFVL Season ends!

Our athletes competed, cheered for teammates, were part of a social groups that spent time with kids from around the region.
Come to Lancaster Rec any Monday or Wednesday from 6-730PM to sign up now and get your young athlete involved!
Every member of the Beat the Streets staff is here for one reason. TO HELP KIDS. We chose to use the sport of wrestling to accomplish this.
Why wrestling? Wrestling is arguably the oldest of all sports but the lessons it teaches are as relevant today as they ever have been: determination, self confidence, discipline, and most importantly hard work.
At Beat the Streets we believe that EVERY child has the potential to be a productive member of our community if they are given the proper support and opportunity, and one great aspect of wrestling is that any body can wrestle. Boy, girl, tall, short, husky or thin, every one will participate and everyone will have the chance to grow as a result. As one of the greatest wrestlers and coaches, Dan Gable, said, “More enduringly than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride. Some have wrestled without great skill – none have wrestled without pride.”
