In a study conducted by the Institute for the Study of Youth Sports at Michigan State University, researchers concluded that the J Robinson Intensive Camp 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. J Robinson Intensive Camps has been changing lives for 36 years and counting—and the research proves it.
