Beat the Streets sponsors the 1st Annual Philadelphia Youth Wrestling Day

BTSPhilly   |   Feb 23, 2011

Beat the Streets Wrestling Philadelphia sponsored the 1st Annual Philadelphia Youth Wrestling Day at George Washington High School on Sunday February 20th. All 8 youth teams that are currently sponsored by Beat the Streets Philadelphia brought athletes to the event and over 200 youth wrestlers participated. It was a great day of wrestling and each athlete earned a medal for their participation. The event placed each of the participants in brackets with up to 5 total wrestlers and almost all wrestlers were able to compete in a minimum of 3 matches throughout the day. Beat the Streets Wrestling Philadelphia is extremely proud of those athletes that participated in the event and those coaches that were key to making the event a huge success. These student-athletes will one day go on to join high school programs throughout the city of Philadelphia and it is our goal to provide a safe and supportive environment so that they can benefit from participation in the sport at all age levels. Not all of the wrestlers came away with a gold medal, but they all came out as winners because of their willingness to step on the mat with an opponent. Special thanks goes out to the George Washington High School and Youth coaching staffs and wrestlers who were terrific hosts. We would also like to recognize the Philadelphia Department of Recreation for partnering with us to sponsor the event. Our success is very dependent on key partners in the community and we are fortunate enough to have wonderful people and organizations in Philadelphia that have been key factors in our success this season.
