Beat the Streets – Los Angeles cultivates youth development in underserved communities by encouraging a desire for excellence, respect, teamwork, leadership, integrity, and perseverance through the instruction of quality wrestling programs.
They strive to enhance young men and women’s lives in school, sports and the community.
Beat the Streets offers a fabulous program to 39 kids at Century Youth Academy.
Coach Adlee Fayyaz has several highly committed youth in his program and said, “The program benefits from two junior captains, Luis Cruz and John Islas, who have helped tremendously leading by example. Wrestling can be a tough sport for newcomers, but having peer leaders who can identify with early hardships and motivate their fellow teammates has been crucial for Century Youth Academy’s success.”
“I was excited to see an increase in attendance and dedication across the board,” Coach Adlee said. “Though many of the wrestlers are young, their dedication and love for wrestling is unmatched and can take them to the top not only in a competitive sense but in everything they do.”
