Read about my all-time favourite trips with Beat The Streets Toronto, Gotham City 2016.
An interview with a once apprehensive mother on her experience watching her daughter find a passion in wrestling.
To say we are proud of Simi Jayeoba and our female wrestlers is an understatement. Thanks to the work of this incredible young lady, CBC news came down to cover the Wrestle the North event yesterday and speak to some of our female wrestlers and Coach Neal Ewers.
If you have a few minutes to spare, check out the report (from 17:45 to 20:00).
Great work everyone!
Today, BTST was fortunate enough to hold it's 2nd annual Wrestle the North Event, featuring our superstar girl wrestlers! The event was a great success and attracted a lot of attention, from not only BTST family and friends but CBC News as well. Our event was on the 6:00pm news and is also featured in a well written article.
Thank you CBC news for taking the time and giving our event and girl's a big boost! Read the article and share the word! And thank you to everyone who came out, participated, helped or supported our girl's and Beat the Streets Toronto.
Watch this space for photos and videos, coming soon!
BTST holds First Middle School Tournament
March 28th marked a large step forward for youth wrestling in Toronto. For the first time in a very long time a TDSB school hosted a middle school wrestling tournament featuring wrestlers from 3 different tdsb schools including Brookview, Dixon Grove, and HollyCrest as well as a couple out of city wrestlers.
The tournament was held at HollyCrest Middle school a new program here in Toronto started through BTS. We will follow this tournament up with Dixon Grove Public Schools 1st annual tournament next Wednesday and we expect an even bigger showing with the addition of Elmbank JMS and Queen Alexandria JMS being added to the Beat the Streets Toronto roster of after school programs!
