Beat the Streets, a volunteer organization that aims to establish a wrestling program, equipment and coach in every Providence middle school, has secured Ed German, head wrestling coach for Hope High School and Rhode Island’s Wrestling Coach of the Year, as program coordinator.
Beat the Streets develops and oversees wrestling programs in local schools where sports programming has been cut. Through the wrestling programs, students receive mentorship and support to do better in school and stay off the streets.
German is a Consulting Teacher for the Providence Schools Teacher Retention and Induction Network (TRAIN). He also developed the middle school wrestling program in Barrington. German was cited by Learning 401 for inspiring his students and enabling them to succeed.
