Beat the Streets Lancaster mission is to empower and enrich our youth through the sport of wrestling. By providing cost-free practices, your child will develop the skills and grit that makes wrestling so great.
Youth practices are designed to teach basic technique, body control, and most importantly to have fun. Competitions are optional.
These practices are for grades 1-6 and competitions are completely optional.
Youth season typically runs from November to March with additional activities and events occurring throughout the year!

With the start of a new school year, we wanted to celebrate all of the incredible achievements accomplished from the last year and season. It was a record breaking season in so many way for our Beat The Streets Lancaster youth, staff and supporters.
So please take a few minutes, and take a minute to see what you have all helped us accomplish!
At the end of June, Beat The Streets Lancaster traveled to the city of Chicago for the 2023 Beat The Streets National Camp & Duals. 11 student-athletes and 3 coaches rode down to Philadelphia to join our friends at BTS Philly. From there, both chapters joined together in a coach bus for a 15-hour bus ride and an opportunity to meet and learn about each other. By the time both teams returned there was more perspective earned, friendships that were made, and a life long experience that will be carried by all of the boys and girls from both cities.
Throughout the course of the weeklong camp, over 350 student-athletes from 13+ chapters from across the country came together for training sessions, workshops, and numerous actives spanning through Chicago. In addition to daily wrestling sessions, wrestlers attended a Cubs/Phillies baseball game at Wrigley Field, learned from business leaders at a diversity workshop, and even had a special dinner aboard the Spirit of Chicago. Lancaster and Philly also competed together during the duals, with kids from both cities supporting each other during the competition.
During the National Duals, we had the opportunity to present Beat The Streets National Full Circle Award recipient, Jose "JG3" Garcia with a plaque and scholarship. This award is presented to a BTS alumni who embodies the core values of BTS, acts as a role model, and continues to give back to their community. He also received a $1,000 scholarship to go towards his higher education. Jose plans to attend Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology with a focus in plumbing. Congrats and keep up the good work!
These lifelong memories would not be possible without the generosity of our community, donors and sponsors. Thank you to everyone that helped support our kids and program to make this incredible trip happen. We're looking forward to next year where the 2024 National Duals will be held in Boston, MA.
