Overview: This camp is designed to promote an atmosphere that will expose athletes of every level to wrestling techniques that have proven successful for beginner to advanced wrestlers. Throughout camp we will give each camper the opportunity to use this technique in a wrestling match and live competition situations. Campers will have the opportunity to learn and train alongside the Brown University coaching staff and team. Our camp staff has had success at every level from youth competition to the International level and we are sure that everyone will learn and grow during their time at camp.

Pool & Free Time: Campers will have the opportunity to play games, watch video, interact with other campers, and use our new indoor pool inside the Nelson Fitness Center outside of the camp sessions. Free swim times and more information will be available at registration.

Camp Format: Each session lasts approximately two hours with the first part of the day devoted toward learning technique and ending with live wrestling competition at the end of the day. Live wrestling will be formatted in various ways throughout the camp to promote and solidify technique taught in the morning sessions. A mix of situational wrestling, takedown matches, top/bottom, and full wrestling matches will be utilized to test and sharpen campers learned skills.

Dining:Meals are served in the Brown University dining hall prior to each session. We offer an “All you can Eat” buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner for residents. Commuters will receive lunch and dinner throughout the camp.

Workout gear, Wrestling shoes, headgear (optional), knee-pads (optional), & mouthpiece(optional), Casual Clothes (to walk around outside camp sessions), Towel, swimming suit, flip flops (optional), Blanket, sheets, sleeping bag (optional), fan, & spending money for snacks and camp gear.
