Overview

Technique and Intensive Camp
Ages 10-18 unless accompanied by a parent or adult. There will be two techniques sessions a day, a workout session, and some live wrestling in the evenings. Our technique camp is designed for individuals or teams. Campers will be taught technique and drills that will help improve their performance and help them achieve their goals. Coach Mills uses his energetic and entertaining style to teach techniques that he used to pin his way around the world. He will teach every day as well as having many great guest clinicians. A tournament will be held at the end of camp getting 7 to 9 matches each.

Technique and Competition Camp
Campers must be going into at least 6th grade to attend the competition camp. Campers will receive the same great technique and drill sessions as well as great competition from all over the country.

First, second, and third place tournament winners will receive Pin2Win awards!!!
