SUPERSTAR WINTER CLINICS
This is a fantastic "in-season" opportunity to be inspired and learn from some of the best wrestlers and coaches in the country. It's also a great change of pace from the grind of the season, especially for high school wrestlers!
Dates were carefully selected so all interested wrestlers can attend:
November 24 is a Sunday before Thanksgiving break.
December 30 is a Monday over Winter Break when schools are closed.
January 20 is a federal holiday with schools closed.
The clinics are geared for more experienced wrestlers. In general, wrestlers should be 10-18 years old and have the experience/focus to benefit from such knowledgeable clinicians. Exceptions can be made to the ages for younger, mature/experienced wrestlers; but in general, we want to make sure wrestlers have a positive experience (and that we don't occupy spots with wrestlers who aren't ready for this level of instruction). Only 100 wrestlers will be admitted into each clinic.
REGISTRATION & FEES
Clinics will be limited to the first 100 wrestlers who register. Fees are as follows:
ALL SESSION PASS $149 (admission to all 3 clinics) 32% Savings!
ZAIN RETHERFORD CLINIC $89 (all day)
KERRY McCOY CLINIC $65 (afternoon)
DEVIN CARTER CLINIC $65 (afternoon)
All participants must have active USA Wrestling cards. Coaches with 5 or more team members attending receive free admission.
NO REFUNDS FOR THESE CLINICS!
