The Beat Streets program has been very important for my integration, education, and friendships since my arrival to Canada. I am very grateful to the coaches and fellow athletes. I keep learning new things that will help me in both wrestling and in life. Thank you Beat Streets!
Since I've started wrestling with Beat The Streets Toronto, it has opened many opportunities for me. I have met so many different loving, kind and caring people in this program. Beat The Streets has taught me many things like how to become a better student, wrestler, athlete and most important a better person.
The thing that I like the most about Beat the Streets is the opportunities that I am given to become a better athlete, student, and person. I have grown so much as a student athlete since I first started in the program. The things we learn in the program not only help us on the mat but also in school and in life.

Before I found BTST, I went to Emery C.I. During that time period I was hanging around with the wrong crowd getting into trouble and being a copier instead of starting my own trend and make people follow me. As a high school student I loved experiencing new sports so I tried out wrestling. At first I thought that I wasn’t going to like it and I was just wasting my time, but in Grade 10 things started to change, I started to win and I knew I wanted to continue in this sport. In Grade 11, I transferred to West Humber CI, BTST had a practice and so I went. Throughout the year I realized that BTST isn’t just a place to practice and wrestle, BTST became my second family. People that I would trust with anything people that would never let you down. Beat the Streets is the best program I’ve been with even days when I’m sad I always leave with a smile on my face. I also meet Coach Courtney Lewis how brought me into his family and treated me like his own son and I thank him for that opportunity. Beat the Streets Toronto is the best program and I’m glad that I’m apart of the club.
Beat the Streets means a lot to me. I'm an only child at home and also one of the younger ones at practice so it's good to have people who I can learn from and look up to both on and off the mat. I have also become way more confident in my wrestling and in my life. I'm not that that shy kid anymore.
I like Beat The Streets because it keeps you in a good safe place and it's like having another Family. I like Beat The Streets because the coaches not only help me improve my wrestling skills they also help me become a better person every day.
Beat the Streets has given me the opportunity to excel in the sport of wrestling. With the help of coaches as well as teammates I feel that I have progressed significantly.
Beat the Streets Toronto is an awesome program with great instruction, and a friendly atmosphere.
Great preparation for my university wrestling career both physically and mentally.
It was a great experience learning with other people and being taught by Neal. I recommend this to other young wrestlers to join Beat The Streets.
Thus far my experience has been awesome! I’m really grateful for the opportunity to continue wrestling and learning in the off season and I’m looking forward to having a fantastic wrestling season!
It’s been amazing, I feel like I’ve improved immensely as a wrestler and have had some great teamwork experiences as well, Ohio was a fantastic tournament for me and I finally realize I need to be more aggressive and take more shots if I want to perform at a higher level. I can’t wait for the next BTS program.
This club has helped me mentally as well as physically, pushing me to become the best version of myself in all aspects of my life , inside and outside of the ring.
