Technique, Strength, Endurance, Mental Toughness
Since 1978, JROB Intensive Camps has trained more than 45,000 wrestlers with a comprehensive training approach that combines technical skill development, strategy, physical preparation, and mental toughness. Our goal is to train and build tough, gritty wrestlers that will be both physically and mentally prepared to win. Our core principles, The J7—Discipline, Dedication, Sacrifice, Hard Work, Responsibility, Accountability, and Service—guides our teaching philosophy, and thousands of coaches over the years have seen the immediate and long-term benefits in their athletes returning from camp. We are commited to training wrestlers in a way that no other program can by improving performance and giving the athletes a new appreciation for what hard work really means.
In 2019, 111 former JROB campers became State Champions and another 551 became State Placewinners. Countless more achieved their goals of making state, getting to regionals, or simply improving on their record from the year before. J's history as a United States Olympian and Army Ranger inspired the rigorous, intense training regimen that pushes athletes to their physical and mental limits, and teaches them how to perform once they've hit the wall. They'll leave camp tougher, stronger, more disciplined, and more determined than ever to win.
Parents and coaches are welcome to visit at any time. Since we began our camps in 1978, parents and coaches have always been allowed to watch each and every practice.

In a study conducted by the Institute for the Study of Youth Sports at Michigan State University, researchers concluded that the JROB Intensive Camp training model was “highly effective at enhancing the psychological development of the participants.” Camp athletes were analyzed on a psychological skills questionnaire, observed at camp, and assessed in three interviews at the beginning of camp, one week after camp, and at the conclusion of the camper’s wrestling season (9 months after camp).
What Did The Study Find?
The study found that the campers demonstrated significant psychological maturation both immediately (post-camp) and long-term (post-wrestling season) in the following areas:
Additionally, the study concluded that "the challenging stressful environment was critical in facilitating these changes."
What Does This Mean? OUR TRAINING MODEL WORKS.
We not only create better athletes, but better individuals. JROB Intensive Camps have been changing lives since 1978—and the research proves it.
