Summer is upon us, and that means the pre-season preparation for next winter has begun in earnest.
Through the generous support of Beat the Streets, nine Madison wrestlers will attend one or more wrestling camps this summer, and will be able to get in work on the mats at locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Seven first time campers will attend the Beat the Streets Top of the Podium Camp, a comprehensive camp that involves wrestling, life skills, and recreation. Once successfully completed, the wrestlers will be eligible to attend a technique camp located on a college campus.
Beat The Streets covers the full camp tuition, and provides transportation.
In addition to wrestling camps, the Beat the Streets Manhattan Training Center (MTC) will have high school wrestling sessions starting July 7th to the end of the month, Monday thru Thursday, 9 – 12 noon. In addition, free breakfast will be served at the Manhattan Training Center, Monday thru Thursday at 8:30am, and free lunch will be served after the session.
There are opportunities to wrestle at other Brooklyn high schools as well. Brooklyn Tech will have their wrestling room open on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5:30 – 7 PM, and Grand Street Campus will run sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:30 – 7 PM.
In August the wrestling schedule changes. Grand Street Campus will run Monday thru Thursday, 9 – 12 noon, and Brooklyn Tech will be Monday thru Thursday, 4:30 – 7 PM.
For the dedicated wrestler, who wants to do all they can *to be all they can be* this upcoming season, there are two great mat sessions a day, Monday thru Thursday, all summer! That, along with the camps, makes for an unbelievable summer of wrestling.
