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. 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 helped established 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!

  • Extraordinary Times for Beat the Streets!

    Beat the Streets Lancaster would like to thank everyone for their support during the Extraordinary Give and the “A Shot In The Dark” clinic!

    During the 24-hour giving day, Beat the Streets raised $10,000, which more than doubled last year’s total!

    It was an amazing day capped off with a fun evening at 551 West with some great live music from Anthony Ferraro! We would like to thank 551 West and Anthony for a great night in support of Beat the Streets!

    The next day, the kids in our program had the honor to learn from Anthony, hear his inspiring story, ask him questions, and see his award-winning film “A Shot In The Dark”.

    Check out the Fox43 News exclusive about the clinic and Anthony’s story.

  • November Wrestler of the Month!

    The November Wrestler of the Month is Jeremy “LJ” Salinas. LJ has been a part of the BTSL program since last year when he began wrestling. His love for professional wrestling and the support of his parents have played pivotal roles in him enjoying the sport and participating at every practice he can possibly attend. LJ is in 3rd grade and enjoys math class. His favorite animal is a hammerhead shark and his favorite food is white rice and beans. His hobbies include practicing wrestling and watching YouTube videos. LJ hopes to one day become a Professional Wrestler.

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!
