3X World Champ Adeline Gray Meets BtS Kids
Thank you to 2016 Olympian and 3x World Champ Adeline Gray for taking time out of her schedule to run a practice for the young men and women of our Beat the Streets Program.
Over 40 kids heard Adeline’s words of wisdom and were able to get instruction from one of the USA’s best wrestlers!
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.”
Aaron Moldoff joins us as Head Coach of the Beat the Streets program at the Lancaster Recreation Commission location after assisting the program last year and instructing at our Summer Camp for Future Champs. After graduating from Marple Newtown High School in 2012 Aaron went on to wrestle for Franklin and Marshall College while earning a degree in History. Aaron started coaching during his freshman year of college with the Lancaster Alliance Wrestling (LAW) Club. After graduating from Franklin and Marshall he coached the Junior High team at Central York Middle School before returning to Franklin and Marshall College in 2016 as an assistant coach.
Isaias Rodriguez serves as Head Coach of the Beat the Streets program practicing at the Phoenix Academy 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.
