We will be offering a commuter option for grades 1-3 as some don’t want to spend the night away from home.  The cost is still the same as they will be doing all the same activities and meals.  They will need to be picked up after the last session each night and dropped back off before the first session the next day! 


COST$395 per camp

  • Takedown Training CampThis camp focuses on takedowns, short offense/defense, bad positions, scrambling and other things.  Athletes will go through three very structured practices per day (including drilling, hard drilling and LIVE!) and get a feel for each move taught.  Your son will get hands on attention and learn the moves taught.
  • Top/Bottom Training Camp : This camp will focus on learning how to turn/pin people and being able to escape from anyone. There will be three very structured practices a day including drilling, hard drilling and LIVE! When you leave camp you will be able to turn and escape from anyone!
  • CHAMP Camp (Boys and Girls):  Wrestlers will be taught a proven system that will help them reach their goal of being a CHAMP (state champ, national champ, etc).  Wrestlers will hit tons of reps at this camp and also put into live situations from the moves they learned!  We will also correct mistakes that we see in live wrestling!  This will be a fast pace camp so experience is very important! I guarantee when your child leaves this camp he will have improved a TON!
  • Youth Intensive Camp: This camp is designed for the youth wrestler who wants to move to the next level. There will be four workouts a day: a morning run/exercise, technique, hard drilling and live! The youth camp will also go through “ Wacky Wednesday !” Will you survive?
