BTSP Wrestlers Enjoy the NWCA All-Star Classic
Over the weekend, Beat the Streets Philadelphia wrestlers had the opportunity to watch some of the greatest talent in the world of wrestling at the NWCA All-Star Classic! 12 BTSP wrestlers took the trip to Princeton University for an awesome fun-filled day of wrestling!
In the morning, our kids had the chance to attend a fantastic clinic led by PRTC Coach & Olympic Gold Medalist Brandon Slay. Coach Slay was joined by 2016 Olympic Gold Medalists Kyle Snyder of Ohio State University & Helen Maroulis! These world-class athletes took the time to speak with our kids about the value of wrestling, go over some of their favorite technique, and answer questions about what it takes to be a champion in such a tough sport. The kids had an incredible time and left the clinic smiling ear to ear!
Afterward, the kids grabbed a quick bite to eat and eagerly made their way into Jadwin Gym where they found front row seats to take in the allure of the All-Star Classic. The kids from BTSP were happy to support Penn wrestlers May Bethea (165 lbs) & Frank Mattice (197 lbs); wrestlers who have both supported Beat the Streets in a mentoring & wrestling coaching capacity in the past!
Seeing such high-caliber wrestling up close was undoubtedly a memorable experience for our kids. Beat the Streets Philadelphia would like to thank the Wrestlers in Business Network and the National Wrestling Coaches Association not only for putting on such a spectacular event; but for helping to ensure that our kids were able to take part in it!
