Pursuit of excellence on and off the mat!

My staff and I are dedicated to promoting excellence in character and performance on the mat, while stressing the importance of learning life skills off the mat. These camps will give wrestlers and coaches an opportunity to gain valuable insight on what it takes to be successful at the highest levels of wrestling in high school and college from clinicians who have lived it! The clinicians were chosen for this camp specifically for two reasons: character, and their ability to teach technique successfully to wrestlers at all levels of wrestling. We believe that every link in a chain is important, so every individual is viewed as a valuable member of our camp. Come to find out for yourself!

Our Camps are designed for wrestlers of all ages and skill levels. We believe the best way to learn is in small and personalized groups. The UNC staff and other coaches will be counselors throughout each camp.

Campers will be taught the style that has helped UNC Wrestlers and me achieve our highest goals. We will concentrate on the execution of basic and high level skill.  Motion, set-ups, high percentage leg attacks, and finishes will be the main focus in the neutral position.

On bottom we will make sure to show a wide variety of escapes and reversals. While we believe a stand up is the safest and best escape, there are also many other ways campers will learn to score. On top we will start with breakdowns and work through different series of rides and turns.

Every technique taught will be drilled repeatedly to make sure campers are able to learn them and perform them in your biggest matches. We know at UNC that the drills and techniques learned will enable you to reach any goal you have.
