How do I choose which camp session my child should attend?

All wrestlers grades 7-12 should plan on attending the Advanced Camp.

Beginners CampMy child has never wrestled before; my child will be in kindergarten, 1st, or 2nd grade next year

Advanced CampMy child has 3+ years experience; my child has qualified for / placed at state

If your child has three or more years experience with wrestling, then he may be well suited at either camp. It largely depends on the wrestler’s age, maturity level, camp expectations, and availability of practice partners. You can make your decision when we get closer to the camp dates. Please feel free to contact me for advice.

If your child is younger, but he has had success at the state level, then he may be better suited with the Advanced Camp.

At the Beginner Camp, we will address the fundamentals of the sport of wrestling. My number one goal with this camp is to hook the wrestlers and to teach them the basics. I want them to enjoy being on a mat, wrestling with a partner, and learning the sport itself. High school wrestlers will help run these camp sessions, and I try to have at least one high school wrestler working with each group of beginner wrestlers. Here is the typical schedule for each beginner session:
• 25 minutes—Warm-up / calisthenics
• 50 minutes—Neutral / Top / Bottom techniques: instruction (steps in the technique), practice (repetition of the move), and application (live situations)
• 40 minutes—Wrestling games, wrap-up of the session
