Now entering our 38th year in 2016, J Robinson Wrestling Camps have trained more than 35,000 wrestlers with a teaching philosophy that focuses on developing technical skill, physical preparation, building mental toughness, and life skills. Our goal is to prepare wrestlers to win by challenging them to overcome physical fatigue and mental stress every day. The lessons we teach have an immediate and long-term impact on the athletes that translates to success on the mat, in the classroom, and in life. The work ethic and discipline instilled at our camps becomes a part of their core, creating tough, determined athletes who channel their skills towards achievement in all aspects of life. 

In 2016, 124 former JROB campers became State Champions and 370 more placed at state. Countless more achieved their goals of making it to the state tournament, advancing to regionals, or simply improving on their record from the year before.

We offer 3 different camp options: Intensive, Technique, and Competition. To determine which camp is best for you or your wrestler, read more below or call us at 612-349-6585.

Intensive Camps

J Robinson Intensive Camps are known as the most challenging and life-changing wrestling camps in the country. The training and conduct expectations of our Intensive Camps are influenced by J Robinson's experience as an Army Ranger and by the protocol of Army Ranger School, which focuses on both physical and mental development. The rigorous training model operates on the principle that intense challenges bring about significant change, so we provide a structured, accountable environment that pushes athletes to their physical and mental limits. Through 4 workouts a day that include technical skill sessions, live wrestling, drilling, running, weight lifting, and cross-training, athletes will be taught a new meaning of hard work. They will learn how positive character traits—Discipline, Dedication, Sacrifice, Hard Work, Responsibility, Accountability, and Service—contribute to their success as an athlete and as a human being. Read more…

Technique Camps

Featuring a high-profile slate of national and regional staff at each camp, J Robinson Technique Wrestling Camps emphasize technical skill development and strategy. Our curriculum covers everything from basic fundamentals—stance, positioning, takedowns, and escapes—to advanced technique and strategy, including set-ups, finishes, and drilling. We separate wrestlers into small groups determined by age, weight and ability, so each wrestler will receive a level of training that fits his or her skill and experience level. The philosophy of our Technique Camps also relies on teaching the disciplined, focused mindset that is the trademark of all J Robinson Camps. Read more…

Competition Camps

The J Robinson Competition Camp is the original Competition Camp, and we now offer two Competition Camps in River Falls, WI, and Atlanta, GA. Our singular goal is to make each wrestler into a more fierce competitor. Wrestlers will get a minimum of 8 full-length, refereed matches within a weight-based bracket, as well as two daily technique sessions and daily lessons on the 4 principles of competition: preparation, performance, evaluation, and adjustments. After each match, wrestlers receive one-on-one, post-match instruction and advice from one of our clinicians, allowing them to receive valuable feedback from some of the nation’s best teachers and college wrestlers.
