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!
WE BET BIG ON LANCASTER AND ARE LETTING IT RIDE!
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our Beat the Streets and the Police Athletic League Casino Night at TELLUS360!
Thanks to you we raised almost $15,000 for youth programming!
We would like to take a second to recognize our great sponsors:
Lancaster Toyota, Auntie Anne’s, Westphal Orthopedics, Realty One Group, Infinity Realty, Utility Keystone Trailers, and ECO-Tech
Additionally Todd Umstead and Silver City Rodeo rocked the house and MOOR Outdoors, Wright Family Dentistry, Lancaster US Army Recruiting, and F&M Wrestling all made the event run smoothly.
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.
Wrestling is a physically and mentally grueling sport that takes a lot out of a person, but in those trying moments, it teaches you lessons that you can apply to your daily life moving forward. The sport of wrestling helps put into perspective how your hard work will directly pay off…it may take some time, but the work will not go to waste. In wrestling, an athlete is held accountable for their own success or failure, and there is nowhere to hide from that accountability. Wrestling teaches you a lot more than you probably realize while you’re active in the sport, and once kids have time to reflect, the importance of this sport cannot be overstated. The trials and tribulations that even the most successful wrestlers face will prepare them to embrace challenges in life and work hard to overcome them. Ultimately, if you’re looking to be taught valuable life lessons, while joining a lifelong community…wrestling is the sport for you.
Tyson Dippery joins us as Head Coach of the Beat the Streets program at the Lancaster Recreation Commission location after competing at Division I Rider University, where he graduated in May 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology. Throughout his five-year collegiate career, Dippery compiled a 101-48 career record. He transferred from Rutgers University where he was a 2016 NCAA Qualifier at 149 lbs. and a Big Ten Championships placewinner – finishing sixth.
A native of Harrisburg, Dippery was a two-time PIAA State Finalist for wrestling-powerhouse Central Dauphin High School, graduating with the most wins in both school and district 3 history with 183. He was a three-time Fargo All-American, placing twice in Greco and once in Freestyle.
Isaias Rodriguez serves as Head Coach of the Beat the Streets program practicing at the McCaskey High School location. Coach Rodriguez graduated from JP McCaskey High School in 1998. He wrestled for Millersville University while earning a degree in education. Coach Rodriguez returned to McCaskey High School to serve as an Assistant Coach for 7 years. These years gave him the experience to take over as Head Coach in 2014 where he currently leads the Red Tornado Wrestling Program. Coach Rodriguez has been a Fourth Grade teacher at Martin Luther King Elementary in Lancaster for the past 10 years.
We have gathered a great group of young men to be role models for the young men and women of Central PA.
