SAFETY UPDATE: TOP follows the guidelines in Operation Safe Mat Return which goes "over and above" state and local health regulations. For those who are extra concerned, we encourage participants to register with members of the same household such as parents or siblings or trusted, responsible friends. If camps are cancelled for any reason, full refunds will be offered.
Our Introduction to Wrestling Summer Camp is an excellent way for kids to try out the "world's oldest sport" for the first time. Participants are usually elementary school age for this camp. For middle schoolers who are new, we recommend our Middle School Camp, although they are welcome to attend this camp if it seems appropriate (young or light middle schoolers, or perhaps a bit less mature or just willing to be in with younger kids).
All campers must be 7 years or older.
In addition to teaching rules, scoring and providing an overview of the sport, the campers begin to wrestle and learn basic positions/techniques. We will also play some games (often wrestling-related) to make sure these newcomers to the sport have a totally positive experience.
By the end of the camp, they should know if they like the idea of wrestling on a team next winter. If they do, they will be several steps ahead of other first year wrestlers!
This camp starts at 9:30 AM and conclude at noon each day. Campers will have a break in the mid-morning each day and are welcome to bring peanut-free snacks.
Fees for this camp are $149. Refund policy is detailed included in our 2021 Camp Guide.
