Compare Heavyweight Training Camp to Heavyweight School

Heavyweight School vs. Heavyweight Training Camp

Two of the most frequently asked questions are: “What is the difference between these two camps?” and “Which one is best for my son.”

Here it is in a nutshell:

The Heavyweight School is a Technique Camp for heavyweights with 3 technique sessions, a little live wrestling in the afternoons, and speeches and presentations.

Then Heavyweight Training Camp is an Intensive Camp for heavyweights and is a day longer.  It has an early morning conditioning workout, 2 technique sessions, a live afternoon practice and speeches and presentations.

Common Myths

  1. The Heavyweight Training Camp is only for advanced wrestlers: not true…It is for kids who want to train, want to push themselves, want an extra day of camp
  2. The Heavyweight School is for beginners: not true…..We have had State Champions, All Americans, NCAA Champions and Olympians who have gone to the Heavyweight School.  It is for the kid who wants technique and less training/wrestling.
  3. There is no live at the Heavyweight School: not true……they wrestle each afternoon, just not as long.
  4. There is no technique at the Heavyweight Training Camp: not true….2 full sessions and with the extra day they will get about the same technique!
