About Beat The Streets: Beat the Streets Wrestling Inc. (BTSNY) is a New York City not-for-profit organization providing wrestling programs in New York City Middle Schools and High Schools. We provide disadvantaged and at-risk youths with the tools and opportunities necessary for them to beat the streets. Our youth not only learn the physical skills of wrestling – they develop confidence and self-reliance while learning to be courageous, to be resilient, to work hard and to never give up. These are lessons that our boys and girls learn alone on the mat, and will carry with them for the rest of their lives. We believe every child should have access to this unique sport, which offers such a high potential for personal growth, self-empowerment and achievement.
