Wrestling Camps

 

A great way to refine your skills in the off-season is to attend intensive wrestling camps or clinics. There are many wrestling camps to choose from, and all will be structured differently with varying techniques and philosophies. For a novice wrestler, finding a camp can be difficult. But we hope this list of wrestling camps will help you discover one near you that will match your needs. Knowing your skill level and the type of instruction or training you need is the first step in choosing what will work best for you.

How to Choose the Right Wrestling Camp

First of all, be sure you know what you want out of wrestling camps. Each camp is structured differently, and there are a lot of different options on where to go, how long to stay, and what to learn. There's also price to consider; top wrestling camps could cost anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, so it is very important that the camp you chose feels right to you.

You should also know what kind of wrestling camp you want to attend:

  • Technique Camps- These are for beginning wrestlers who want to gain a general understanding of basic skills and experience, or just want to focus on one part of their wrestling that needs improvement. Technique camps will expand your knowledge as a wrestler, and expose you to higher skill levels of technique. Typically, technique camps are for learning, and are usually non-intensive so they are great for beginning wrestlers.
  • Intensive Wrestling Camps- For wrestlers with more experience, intensive camps will help develop your skills further. These camps typically focus more on intense training needed at high levels of competition so wrestlers are not only physically prepared, but also mentally prepared to compete. These camps typically stay away from learning new techniques, based on the assumption you already have a solid foundation.

Choosing the right camp can be difficult in the beginning, but once you know what you need and what camps offer it gets a lot easier.
