About Us

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.

BtS Web Photo 2Why 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.”

Head Coaches

Aaron started coaching during his freshman year of college with the Lancaster Alliance Wrestling (LAW) Club.
