Campers wake up early in the morning for a cross-training session. We use early wake-ups to help the campers develop discipline, which we define as "doing what you don’t want to do when you don’t want to do it"’ On any given day, campers can expect to take part in a workout that may include long distance runs, sprints, circuit lifts, or other cross-training exercises.

Wrestlers participate in a daily practice session dedicated to improving their technical skill. During these technique practices, campers are put into their wrestling groups based on their weight. Our staff teaches moves ranging from basic fundamentals to advanced techniques. We cover a variety of situations in the bottom, top, and neutral positions. Each camper will have an opportunity to learn techniques from our entire staff at various points throughout the camp. With our camper to staff ratio of 10:1, campers will have access to one-on-one attention with our coaching staff.

Hard practices are designed to push wrestlers to their physical and mental limits. These practices include live wrestling, hard drilling, and conditioning exercises. Campers will have multiple practice partners within their wrestling group so they can wrestle against different styles and levels of competition. During hard practice, campers are being evaluated by our coaches for the amount of effort and intensity they are putting into their wrestling training. Hard practices provide the campers a great opportunity to use new techniques in live situations, build mental toughness, and develop endurance.
Evening Technique Review/Cross-Training

The workout during the evening session changes daily. During this session, the campers are split into running groups. Each group will take part in a different cross-training workout that may include running, sprinting, and lifting weights. During the cross-training portion of the workout, campers are evaluated on their effort. Reviewing moves from the day’s technique practice is also a large part of this session. It is important to review the new techniques and give campers the opportunity to continually progress their skills. This practice is another great chance for campers to ask questions and work with our coaching staff one-on-one.
