Beat Our Streets Singapore (B.O.S.S)
B.O.S.S is a non-profit programme driven by the Wrestling Federation of Singapore which aims to use the sport of wrestling to inspire our urban children and teenagers and provide them with the academic and athletic support required to reach success.
Through wrestling, participants learn key values such as resilience, discipline, commitment, leadership and sportsmanship. Wrestling also serves as a metaphor for our young on how they can overcome adversity in challenging situations and how the struggle against seemingly unsurmountable odds in wrestling will give them a chance of success.
Through the programme, participants are also equipped with life-skills such as financial literacy. B.O.S.S currently runs free wrestling classes for children and teens under the age of 18 as well as after school programs at various institutions and hopes to further support them with the help of donors and volunteers.

Singapore National Wrestling Team
Our pioneer National Team was established in 2009 and during that year under the tutelage of 2 times Olympic Champion and 6 times World Champion, Sergei Beloglazov, achieved our first ever Silver medal in the SEA games.
Since then, we have achieved medals for our Nation at many regional and international competitions. Our most recent achievement was from Alvina Lim who clinched a Bronze medal at the 2016 Commonwealth Wrestling Championships.
As part of Team Singapore, we hope to continue to do our small nation proud and achieve higher standards at the international stage.
