Beat The Streets - New York City Wrestling

For the past several years, BTS has sent hundreds of wrestlers to sleep-away summer wrestling camps outside of New York City.  Wrestlers have experienced working with college coaches and wrestlers, as well as kids from other parts of the country.

This summer, BTS hosted the Top of the Podium (TOP) Day Camp in Manhattan, as well as sent qualifying wrestlers to the Cornell Wrestling Camps led by Rob Koll

From Wednesday, July 5 to Saturday, July 8, 2017, 250 BTS boys and girls trekked from all five boroughs to Seward Park Campus in Manhattan for the first Top of the Podium Camp that has taken place in the city. Campers ranged from 5th through 12th grade.  Each day included two wrestling sessions, Life Skills Workshops focused on pursuing the next level in education, lunch, and a recreation session.  Featured clinicians included Olympian Elena Pirozhkova and Olympic Champion Kendal Cross.  You can read the full recap here.
