Scott Schmitz Trained Wrestling Camp

The Scott Schmitz Trained Wrestling Camp, to be held June 15-18 at the Mineral Point High School gym, is now accepting applicants.

Many times the beginning wrestlers learn moves and holds in unrelated fashion, and there is no real underlying system or philosophy to the instruction.

This camp is different! It is designed to give the younger wrestlers the fundamentals that are critical for success, as well as teach them a system. Wrestlers learn how to drill correctly. Wrestlers will also learn the vital importance of stance, hip position, and the techniques that all champions must have. Skills such as set-ups, proper leg attacks, finishes, and the front headlock will be mastered. However, because most championships are won on the feet, takedowns will be the main focus.

Hard Work Equals Success!
