At five locations spanning all five boroughs, over 330 middle school-aged grapplers took to the mat, kicking off the initial jamboree weekend of the first fall Junior League season.
While our jamborees are competitive, the focus is not on winning and losing, but getting on the mat and having fun.
Beat the Streets sent several wrestlers to the formidable Journeymen Classic up in Albany while Petrides on Staten Island played host to the annual Steeplechase Open.
Leading the way upstate were 2013 New York State Champions Rich Sisti (Senior, Monsignor Farrell) and Adis Radoncic (Junior), who transferred from Riverdale-Kingsbridge Academy to Poly Prep over the summer.
On Saturday, September 21st, we will be starting a youth wrestling program for elementary and middle school-aged boys and girls. Practices will be every Saturday from 9:00am - 10:30am. The fall program ends on October 26th. There is no cost to participate. A flier is available with all the information.
There will be a coaches clinic on Wednesday, September 25th featuring Army Wrestling Head Coach Joe Heskett. Pre-registration is required.
Contrary to previous announcements, Thursday night Match Nights will not begin until October. As many student-athletes are focusing on academics or playing a fall sport, interest was great enough to warrant skipping practice. Instead, normal practices will take place on Thursday nights. The updated Fall Schedule flier is now available.
