Camp's Description

Overview The Georgia Elite Beginner’s Camp is designed for optimal learning and retention. Every aspect of our camp is organized and carefully detailed. Our technique and wrestling sessions include a planned sequence of instruction, unique drills, and review sessions. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide each camper with as much individualized attention as possible while using drill repetition and review sessions to optimize retention. We will accomplish this by bringing ten of Georgia’s most respected high school coaches together to teach campers the basic skills necessary for early wrestling success. Each technique session, campers will spend their time with a different instructor, learning the techniques that have made them successful. No coach will teach more than ten kids at a time, maximizing individual attention, learning, and skill development for each camper. Each session will conclude with a 15 minute review session in which athletes drill the techniques they have been taught with high repetition, developing muscle memory and ensuring retention. We recommend that campers bring a notebook to write down the steps of each technique they are taught immediately after each session concludes. Each evening, campers will conclude their day with live wrestling, where they are paired with other campers of similar age, weight, and experience level and asked to put into action what they have been taught throughout the day. Our instructors will oversee the live wrestling and provide feedback to campers as they come off the mat. Our instructors are selected based not only on their skill knowledge, but also on their unique ability to break down detailed instruction in a manner that will not teach over the heads of the beginning wrestler. Our goal is for each camper to walk away with a clear understanding of the following: · The attitude and commitment it takes to excel at the sport of wrestling · Basic set-ups and takedowns · Basic defense and counter attacks from the feet · Stance and position on your feet · Mat awareness and strategy · Effective front headlocks and go-behind techniques from the short-offense position · Pinning combinations that will turn even the toughest opponents · Legs & and leg defense from the mat · The stand up and a series of reversals that enable continuous chain wrestling from bottom $225 - commuter $325 - camper staying overnight
