Get Exposure to These Coaches at Wrestling Camp in 2016
If you’re looking for the “full experience” when it comes to attending wrestling camp this summer, then look no further than Pioneer Wrestling Camp at Sacred Heart University. This camp is designed to provide that full experience while providing top-notch individual development opportunities.
This will consist of training and technique sessions, along with dual meet competition. We know that the main reason why you’re coming to wrestling camp is to become a better wrestler, and our biggest focus is to help you meet your goals, whatever they may be.
Our staff on hand will keep campers motivated to train at a competitive speed and ensure they’re being challenged continually. There’s also the benefit of having a low camper-to-staff ratio, which is done intentionally so there can be as much individual instruction as possible.
We’re proud to have some of the best coaches in the country join us for our U.S. Wrestling Camps, and they’re dedicated toward the personal development and improvement of each wrestler. Whether you’re going to get better on the mat or taking a step toward wrestling at the next level, the instructors who know what it takes to get there are here to help.
Andy Lausier will be directing the Pioneer Wrestling Camp this summer, and he brings an impressive resume with him. He has an extensive college coaching history, starting out as the head coach at Stevens Tech and leading them to three NCAA tournament appearances before being head assistant coach at Princeton, and now being in charge of the Pioneers.
What’s great about Lausier and his experience is that not only has he coached NCAA All-Americans, but he’s also been one himself. As a wrestler at Lycoming College, he enjoyed a fantastic career, posting a collegiate record of 121-29 and was inducted into Lycoming’s Athletic Hall of Fame back in 2009.
His assistant coach, Derek Moore, who also brings a sparkling wrestling resume to the table, will be instructing wrestlers at this camp. He joined the SHU coaching staff after five years of active duty in the United States Army.
Since Moore was a part of the Army world-class athlete program, he had the opportunity to train with various Olympic champions and competed in the 2012 U.S. Olympic team trials himself. His college years on the mat were spent at the University of California Davis, where he won the Division-I Championship and was named the NCAA’s Most Outstanding Wrestler on top of being named the Pac-10 Conference Wrestler of the Year.
We have coaches with this kind of experience join us each summer – we want our campers to get the best instruction possible to help them reach their personal goals. This is not a camp that just focuses on the physical aspect of the sport, either. We have guys like Lausier and Moore come in because it took more than just athleticism to have the kind of success they’ve experienced.
They serve as great role models and inspiration for the campers to improve themselves in all aspects of the sport, which will help you get better.
