Camp Philosophy

The Wrestle Like A Girl Empowerment Camps and Clinics are directed by the WLAG organization, and can include clinicians who are Olympic and World medalists, as well as All-American wrestlers. Wrestlers from the United States Women’s Wrestling National team will serve as counselors at all Empowerment Clinics, as well as regional all-star talent located across the country. The philosophy of our camps is to provide a FUNSUPPORTIVEENGAGING and POSITIVE environment for girls to learn wrestling and develop technique. We work to develop the whole athlete and are using high caliber role models to do it!

*100% of the net proceeds will go towards increasing opportunities and advocacy for girls and women's wrestling*

Join us for a fun-filled clinic learning about wrestling! 

The Wrestle Like A Girl Empowerment Camps and Clinics are specifically tailored to girls ages 05-18 who want to learn wrestling and the championship life skills involved with success both inside and outside the sport! No experience necessary!

Each camp or clinic will have a support network of high caliber national team athletes and regional staff who will guide athletes as they develop their skills. We emphasize the EMPOWERMENT and INCLUSION of each athlete and educate them on technical skill development AND proper nutrition, hydration and the implementation of mental skills training. Our curriculum covers everything from basic wresting fundamentals: Stance, position, takedowns, escapes and exposures to more advanced technique and strategy such as: Set-ups, finishes, and drilling. They will be able to develop championship skills like goal-setting, with an emphasis through hard work. 

40 Minute Exposure Clinic Sponsored by Adidas Wrestling

The goal of WLAG is to empower young female athletes through the sport of wrestling. Athletes learn technical wrestling and develop championship skills like goal setting, anxiety management and confidence building with an emphasis through hard work.  Every camper and clinic attendee will receive a ‘Wrestle Like A Girl’ handbook, which will support the learning of nutrition, hydration and sport psychology.
