Are We Succeeding? Yes – we are.
Our programs keep students engaged in school, developing core character traits such as persistence, courage, self-esteem, confidence, tenacity, work ethic, resilience, team orientation and old fashioned guts. Those skills and character traits ultimately have a direct impact on their ability to graduate, transition to college or employment, and go on to lead productive and happy lives. The experiences that BTSP has been able to provide through the sport of wrestling and in our mentoring program have proven to be a powerful, self-reinforcing method of helping the student athletes to develop and cement those aforementioned character traits that prove essential to their longer term personal success.
We hear it from our coaches, teachers and mentors. We hear from the parents who come to support their children at our events. Most importantly, we can see it when speaking with our student-athletes.
