Join us for a fun-filled weekend 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 wrestling 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. Each camper will get the ‘Wrestle Like A Girl’ sport journal that will serve as a resource for mental skills development, training and nutrition tracker.
