Winter Jamboree Recap

Posted: December 22, 2014

December 21, 2014 | In today’s youth sport environment, BTSLA’s events strive to represent the best in youth competition. And nowhere was that more on display than on Sunday, December 14th at Roybal High School in Downtown Los Angeles.
BTSLA’s Winter Jamboree saw the over 200 youth participants smiling, laughing, at times driven and determined, but always showing integrity and good sportsmanship.
“I think our events have begun to become a powerful tool in our mission to provide youth development opportunities to our wrestlers. Competition brings out the best in our wrestlers and when they see their friends, classmates, and peers giving their best, showing perseverance, determination, and inner will, all while having fun, it’s pretty contagious and inspiring,” said BTSLA Program Director, Kevin Lake
The event kicked-off with a group of very special guests, the USC Trojan Wrestling Club. The college wrestlers led the group through a warm-up and clinic to prepare the athletes for the task at hand.
“I think this is a great way for USC Wrestling to give back to Los Angeles youth. I love the mission of BTSLA and to be in a position to share my experiences at USC with them is a special opportunity,” said USC Wrestling Club President, Nick Cegelski.
At the first whistle, the six mats came alive with action in both Attack Bandz matches as well as the wrestling tournament. Wrestlers from 18 BTSLA program sites along with club wrestlers from Topanga PAL, HQ/10th Planet, Titan Mercury Wrestling Club, South Pasadena Wrestling Club, Outlaws Wrestling Club, and Paul Revere MS battled for position and ultimately the top spot on the podium.
The Winter Jamboree represented the final competition event of 2014. BTSLA wrestlers will look to return to the competition mats on February 8th for the Spring Jamboree.
“I am proud of how our wrestlers perform when challenged and I am excited to watch their continued progress into 2015,” said Lake.
