Beat the Streets Providence seeks to create a model for bringing middle school sports back to every school in Providence and eventually, to every school in Rhode Island. We believe this effort is a crucial part of creating an after-school environment that will ensure every student finds their passion, their personal path to success, and, ultimately, that no student is left behind.
Our Newest Home
On September 29th, a group of over 50 wrestlers, parents, and coaches from our BTS family gathered together to do something special. Over the course of 12 hours within the Waughtel-Howe Field House, simply referred to as “The Box” at Moses Brown private school, a space was created. Simply put, it was a standard wrestling room, and taking a step back at the end of the day, anyone could see that only three inches separated us from the original floor below. Three inches, a tiny step that you probably wouldn’t even notice if not for the sharp contrast between the soft mat and original hard floor. Although, it is tiny steps like these that have driven our organization forward these past six years. They’re like the millions of tiny adjustments we make while wrestling to better our position. No one notices, but in your head, you know it’s why you’ve won. The small gap between our feet and the original floor represents so much more to our family than the distance it measures. It’s a tiny step away from who we are and toward who we want to become. The room was the first space in our programs history specifically created by and for our family. When the paint dried on the door and everyone stepped inside to photograph what we had done, it all hit us at once, and we all stood a little taller. It was three inches taller to be exact, but it felt like miles. We are extremely thankful to be able to call this place home and to everyone who made it possible.
