Wrestlers Now, Champions For Life!

Beat the Streets Lancaster is committed to helping establish youth wrestling programs in the Lancaster area for girls and boys grades 1-8. The organization promotes the personal development of student-athletes by providing the resources to support wrestling and mentoring programs in Lancaster. Beat the Streets Lancaster was founded on the principle that all children have the potential to become productive citizens when provided the proper support. This belief has endured since BTSL began in 2016, as we have established five programs in and around the Lancaster area, including a girls-only wrestling program. To this day, the organization remains focused on running wrestling and youth development programs for underserved student-athletes that can positively alter the trajectories of their lives. Come see what Beat the Streets can do for you!

  • 2018-19 Season Comes to a Close

    Beat the Streets continued to grow in 2018-19 thanks to our fantastic group of coaches, Ian Stoeckl, Isaias Rodriguez, Lexis Ortiz, Tyson Dippery, Kevin Franklin, Alex Baider, the staff at Franklin & Marshall and Millersville, who worked to change lives through WRESTLING!

    These smiles are what we are working for and over 210 kids came to one of our programs at Lancaster Rec, The MIX, LAW Women, or the McCaskey Competition Team.

    Our Summer programs include continued competitions and a Youth Camp and keep following us on https://www.facebook.com/BTSLancaster/ for registration periods for even more opportunities in the 2019-20 season!

About Us

Beat the Streets cultivates youth development in underserved communities by encouraging a desire for excellence, respect, teamwork, leadership, integrity, and perseverance through the instruction of quality wrestling programs.

Every member of the BTSL staff is here for one reason, to help the kids we serve. We chose to use the sport of wrestling to accomplish this.

The sport of wrestling helps put into perspective how hard work and self-accountability can bring forth success in all aspects of life. Beat the Streets is ready to help our youth make a positive and lasting impact in Lancaster!
