Beat The Streets - New York City Wrestling

Thanks to the support of the New York Community Trust, the Heisman Trophy Youth Development Fund, and the DeWitt Wallace Fund for Youth, Beat the Streets will be implementing the "High School Beginnings Program." As a part of the "High School Beginnings Program", a larger effort to support Junior League wrestlers, coaches, and parents with navigating the high school admissions process, Beat the Streets will be offering a free Specialized High School Test (SHSAT) preparation program.  

Through a partnership with Succeed Test Prep, 20 BTSNY wrestlers in the 8th grade will be chosen for the program, which will include 2 full-length proctored tests, nine 2-hour lessons taught by a Succeed Test Prep expert (18 hours of instruction), and student support before and after class via email. The class will begin on Tuesday, September 12 and end on Wednesday, October 18. The class will be held from 5 PM to 7 PM at the Vita Sports Partners offices (252 W 37th Street, Suite 400, New York, NY 10018), where Beat the Streets is located. 

The 2017 SHSAT will be offered on Saturday, October 21. The SHSAT is necessary for attendance to eight of New York City's specialized high schools, which are among the most selective in the city and the best in the nation. The five specialized high schools with wrestling programs are Brooklyn Tech, Bronx Science, Brooklyn Latin, Staten Island Tech, and Stuyvesant. Being able to attend one of these school and continue wrestling will help assure that youth reach their full academic and athletic potential. 

To provide this opportunity to as many NYC youth in need of this resource, Beat the Streets would also like to encourage youth to apply for membership here.
