  1. Try it before committing to the season – Wrestling isn’t for everyone, but you won’t really know until you’ve tried it out. A camp is perfect because it’s only a commitment of a few days and you will learn all the basic aspects of what’s involved in the sport.
     
  2. Build Confidence – Camps can provide a jump start for upcoming seasons. Whether it’s his/her first time or they need to gain a competitive edge going into year two, the skills developed at camp will help.  In fact, sometimes just the experience of attending a camp can give kids a boost athletically and socially.
     
  3. Improve Wrestling Skills – For 3 days we will focus on learning and sharpening wrestling skills. While some camps teach a high quantity of “moves”, this can result in the wrestler not retaining anything. We teach a system of progression that is designed to help kids learn and retain techniques, as well as way to apply techniques through drills and live wrestling.
     
  4. Burn Summer Energy – Summer days can be long. Wrestling is a great way to get them exhausted.
     
  5. Have Fun – Wrestling is a very rewarding sport and lots of fun. Campers will meet new friends and a special bond is built between those who train together.
