This gender inclusive camp is for middle school youth who want to try out the "world's oldest sport" for the first time. It is also the fastest growing women's sport in our country as well! All experience levels, including no experience, will be challenged.
In addition to teaching rules, scoring and providing an overview of the sport, the kids will practice tumbling and "falling correctly". Almost immediately, kids will begin to wrestle and learn basic positions/techniques. We will also play "wrestling related" games to make sure newcomers to the sport have a challenging, yet positive experience.
By the end of camp, they should have enough practical experience to know if they like the idea of wrestling on a team/club next year. If they do, they will be several steps ahead of other first year wrestlers!
This camp will start at 8:30AM and conclude at 5:00PM each day. Campers will have a break in the mid-morning each day and should bring a bagged lunch bring peanut-free snacks.
What to bring:
-Athletic Wear (an extra T-shirt/shorts to change into each day)
-Water Bottle (please put your name on it)
-Wrestling Shoes (Optional: if you don't have shoes we will be on the mats barefoot similar to martial arts)
