We are falling into the school rhythm this October and we are excited for the wrestling season. With the wrestling season there is the need for giving our coaches the tools they need for success! Our coaches are also teachers, parents, mentors, and volunteers! Cheer on our BTSNE mentor-coaches and the wrestlers they serve!
José, our co-founder and first Boston Head Coach teaches AND still coaches. We are celebrating his birthday this month!
Beat the Streets New England is at School:
Boston programming kicked off in Excel Academy and at Codman Academy Charter Schools. Our returning veteran Coach Keith is down on the ground with student athletes to engage kids where they are at. All you need is a safe space to practice and someone who believes in you.

Back-To-School Annual Event: Flatbread Pizza Fundraiser
September 14th was a blast at Flatbread Pizza in Providence, RI. Wrestlers love pizza! The raffle awards went out to kids, coaches, and families. One winner, “Big Jon,” we call him, talks about leaving high school and transitioning into college.
Why are you excited for school?
“You know without school, I would be bored and do nothing or being lying in bed watching Netflix all day. But, I’m very excited that I get to be busy all day.” – Providence Community College Freshmen and Student-Athlete, Big Jon

Welcoming a New Opportunity for Youth
Providence Program Director Silas Murray attended a graduation ceremony at the Nonviolence Institute last month. This is our first season connecting our youth to this wonderful program and we hope the relationship will be fruitful. They teach, by word and example, the principles and practices of nonviolence, and foster a community that addresses potentially violent situations with nonviolent solutions.
