The Technique Camps will concentrate on instruction, drilling and live wrestling for beginning to advanced wrestlers in grades 6-12. It will include techniques and drills from the feet, top and bottom positions. It will also provide information on conditioning, weight lifting, nutrition and goal setting. Instruction will cover hand fighting, multiple setups, counters, strategy and an array of high-percentage scoring techniques from the feet. The camp will explore the most effective ways to ride, turn and pin or technical fall a good opponent. Emphasis will be placed on leg riding, controlling wrists, arm bars, tilts, breakdowns, cradles and winning 30-second ride-outs from the mat. This camp will also focus on escapes and reversals to make you a well-rounded wrestler. Camp will conclude with an individual takedown tournament if so desired.

Intensive Training Camp:

The Intensive Training Camp is designed for experienced, dedicated wrestlers in grades 6-12 who want an intense program combining technique instruction, drill sessions, running, strength training and high-level competition. The camp is ideal for wrestlers who want to expand the limits of their mental, physical and emotional toughness. This camp can be TOUGH; however, it can provide the wrestlers with the mental and physical conditioning they need to be champions in the upcoming season.

Team Camps:
July 6-9 or July 10-13

The Team Camps will give wrestlers in grades 7-12 a balance of intense competition and outstanding instruction in each session, while also providing a unique bonding experience between the wrestlers and staff members of both levels. We have set up the team camps to enable schools to bring together both junior high and senior high staff members to enhance their camp experience and bring unity to their program; junior high teams will compete against other junior high teams when it is possible. In previous years, coaches have embraced our flexibility and arranged to have their ninth graders wrestle on either the junior high and/or senior high team in order to create the best match. Those teams bringing a junior high team are encouraged to attend the first session of our team camps. (Please check "other" on the registration form.) This will allow junior high students an opportunity to get more matches against wrestlers of the same age and experience level. An individual takedown tournament will conclude the camp.

Who: Students grades 7-12

Fees: $390 per person resident fee (includes instruction, housing, meals, camp shirt)

$325 per person commuter fee (includes instruction, all meals, camp shirt)

Meals: Lunch on the first day to breakfast on the last day
