Positively alter life’s trajectory for K-12 student-athletes in the City of Cleveland by giving them access to youth development, mentoring, and wrestling.

Beat the Streets cultivates youth development in under-served communities by encouraging a desire for excellence, respect, teamwork, leadership, integrity, and perseverance through the instruction of quality wrestling programs.
In 2019 a group of like minded individuals who are passionate about creating opportunities that will ultimately change the lives of thousands of children in the city of Cleveland came together to form Beat the Streets Cleveland.
During our first year we successfully supported over 200 children throughout the City of Cleveland through working with 3 local schools. Robinson G. Jones, Anton Grdina and Cleveland Central Catholic High School. We offered 2 six week programs, we sent a group of 35 K - 12 students on a life altering trip to Indiana for an iron Sharpens Iron Summer Camp, This camp consisted of some of the top athletes in the country and lastly we had in-season competition team which consisted of youth and middle student athletes.
As a whole 2019 was an amazing year that was ultimately the foundation. Because of the success, we have decided to expand into 2 additional locations; Harvey Rice and Joseph Gallacher. We are anticipating we will be able impact over 400 children this year and by 2028 neatly 2,000 children annually.
