Posted: January 6, 2021
Registration Deadline: Sunday, January 17
Winter Academy Starts: Monday, February 1
Winter Academy Ends: Thursday, March 11
The Winter Academy is an opportunity for Beat the Streets Los Angeles wrestlers to be part of a fun program involving mastery of wrestling skills, healthy living habits, academic achievement, and character development.
The program will involve mentorship, fitness, wrestling video review and analysis, home-based solo wrestling skills and drills, jumping rope, literature, chess, and keeping a journal. Also, if possible given the current guidelines from local officials, coaches will facilitate socially-distanced outdoor workouts with small groups.
Come be part of it!
You must first be registered for Beat the Streets LA this season at btsla.org/2020-21.
Once registered, each participant will be assigned to a team led by a trained Coach and Mentor.
Prior to the first day of the Winter Academy, Beat the Streets coaches/mentors and staff will coordinate with you a pick-up or delivery of the Winter Academy Packet. The packet will include a cinch bag, journal/workbook, jump rope, book, chess set, t-shirt, and yoga mat. Only those who are fully committed to participating in the entire Winter Academy Program are eligible for this unique opportunity. Those who participated in the Summer or Fall Academy will not receive the items they already have (jump rope, chess set, yoga mat).
During each week of the Winter Academy, you will participate in a weekly 45-minute Zoom meeting, 1-2 outdoor workouts, complete workout challenges and participate in other activities.
By participating in each aspect of the Winter Academy, you will earn points for your team.
At the end of the Winter Academy, all teams will come together for one large Zoom meeting on March 11 and participate in the Winter Academy Finale. During the Winter Academy Finale, the team with the most points will be crowned the Winter Academy champions!
