Philosophy: This camp is designed for individuals or teams to learn technique, and apply this knowledge in a competition setting. This camp will expose athletes of every level to wrestling techniques that have proven successful for beginner to advanced wrestlers. Team camp offers valuable mat-time experience against top wrestlers from around the country. Also allows coaches to evaluate and grow with their team during the dual meet and competition format of the camp. Throughout the camp we will focus on match management, takedowns, top/bottom skills, and pinning combinations to achieve team bonus points.

Attend this camp as an individual or on a high school team. Upon arrival, everyone will be assigned a team, and groups that come together will be placed on the same team. Each team will be assigned a college wrestler/counselor that will coach and help guide campers throughout the camp. This will allow each team and camper to receive personalized attention that suits their style of wrestling. The assigned coach will prepare each team for competition with warm up, preparation, and match strategy. Whether athletes are preparing for the dual aspect or the individual aspect of live wrestling, this camp will give each camper an inside look on how a college wrestling team prepares before each competition.

Schedule: Each camp session will last approximately two hours. The first hour of each session will be devoted to learning and perfecting proven technique. The second hour will be devoted toward using that new technique in live wrestling competition. Live wrestling will be formatted as individual, takedown, top/bottom, and dual meet competitions.

Format: Teams will compete in a round-robin dual tournament format in which each team has the opportunity to compete against every team in the camp. The team scores will be recorded throughout the camp with the last session of the camp culminating with the placing rounds.

Madison Style Weigh-In: Each camper will weigh-in on day one of the camp. We will then match up campers based upon their current weight as closely as possible for each competition. These athletes will then compete against each other in various formats including but not limited to: full matches, takedown tournament, top/bottom tournament, and an All-Star match (top two in each weight class will be randomly split into two teams and compete in a dual format match). These athletes will then compete against each other in various formats including but not limited to: full matches, takedown tournament, and top/bottom tournament.

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.

Pool, Free Time, & Campus Tour: Campers will have the opportunity to play games, watch video, interact with other campers, and use the new indoor pool inside the Nelson Fitness Center outside of the camp sessions. The new indoor pool will be used throughout the camp as a training and free time facility. Free swim times and more information will be available at registration.

  • Brown University campus tours will be provided to all campers that attend this camp.

    ~T-Shirt included for all participants. Brown wrestling apparel will also be available to purchase throughout the camp.
