Through a carefully planned sequence of instruction, unique drills, and review sessions, your wrestler will learn the basic skills and fundamentals of wrestling! Each session will cover different wrestling skills and philosophies such as hand fighting for take downs and top and bottom techniques. An emphasis will be placed on body positioning and conditioning, and drills and games will be utilized to enhance learning and promote a relaxed and fun environment.
Camp will be led by Victor Ventresca, Hawken varsity wrestling coach. Coach Ventresca is a Mayfield, OH native and was a collegiate wrestler first at Ohio State University and then at John Carroll University, where he was a Division III national qualifier. He is also an accomplished strength and conditioning coach with over 20 years of experience. Each student is required to bring a notebook to record, outline, and take notes from each breakout session. Additionally, campers should bring a light snack and water each day, and each wrestler is encouraged to create a short list of questions to ask coach Ventresca which will help them learn and level up!
