Skill Development and Personal Growth
JROB Intensive Wrestling Camps offer a comprehensive approach to wrestling training, personal maturation, and life skills development. When your son or daughter comes to camp, they will be challenged with a unique experience that tests them as an athlete and as a person. We focus on technical skill development, strategy, physical training, and mental toughness. Our teaching philosophy is guided by what we call The J7—Discipline, Dedication, Sacrifice, Hard Work, Responsibility, Accountability, and Service. Your athlete will gain a deeper understanding of what it takes to be physically and mentally prepared, and what it means to work hard and practice hard. The lessons they retain will change their lives not just in wrestling, but in everything that they do.
In 2019, 111 former JROB campers became State Championsand 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.
