The team will be led by Head Coach Terry Steiner, and accompanied by Team Leader and Beat the Streets NY President Kyra Tirana Barry.
A contingent of Beat the Streets women and girls—including coaches, staff, student-athletes, parents, and alumnae—gathered at Madison Square Garden last night for the New York Liberty Women’s Basketball game, to cheer on the team as they defeated Indiana Fever 73-61.

Beat the Streets student-athletes and coaches gathered at the Manhattan Training Center last Sunday for our second monthly girls social, much enjoyed by everyone involved. The day started out with a workout led by certified personal trainer Stefan Pryce. Stefan, who works with adolescent fitness programs throughout various New York City hospitals—particularly those serving overweight and obese youth—is also a volunteer coach for Coach Across America (CAA). Through CAA, he was placed with I Challenge Myself, a fellow Up2Us organization that helps kids grow through the sport of cycling. Since his time with CAA, he has become a volunteer wrestling coach at Bathgate Educational Complex, allowing him to teach kids the sport he practiced throughout high school and college.
