EDWARDSVILLE, ILL. - Area wrestlers have their opportunity to train with the best at the SIUE Summer Wrestling Camp.
This year's summer camp will take place July 10-14 at SIUE's Vadalabene Center. The camp features a visit from two-time NCAA Division I champion Brent Metcalf.
The cost for the camp is $175 for a commuter camper without meals. There is a commuter option with meals for $225. Campers who would prefer to stay in SIUE Housing will pay $350. Campers must be at least nine years old through high school seniors. Registration is available at www.siuewrestlingcamps.com.
SIUE Head Coach David Ray is excited to bring his combination camp to SIUE. The philosophy of the combination camp is to take all aspects of wrestling (technique, conditioning, psychological process and physiological process) that each wrestler is exposed to and apply them to real-match situations. At the combination camp, every camper learns new techniques to maximize his potential and is given the opportunity to perfect his techniques.
The combination camp consists of three sessions. The morning session will consist of conditioning and technique along with live situations.
The afternoon session will consist of conditioning and one hour of technique followed by a 10-team round robin tournament. Each camper will have nine three-minute matches over Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (3 matches per day).
The evening session will consist of six different activities lasting 90 minutes each. These include swimming, strength training, proper dieting and weight gain, wall climbing, activities on the lake, and bowling.
