What are the Residential Camp Types?

Technique Camps
You will learn a system that has produced 44 state team championships and over 180 individual state champions, as well as several high school & NCAA All-Americans and National Champions. We will break each hold into steps, and drill repetitively to perfection. All of our holds are taught in a series to instill chain wrestling into your athletes. Chain wrestling is the key to success at every level of the sport. This camp is designed for all wrestling at all ages and skill levels that want to develop a winning system.

Youth Camps (Ages 7 - 12)
Granby School of Wrestling Youth Camps have been carefully designed so that wrestlers have a positive experience in a closely supervised environment. Your child will leave our camp with a basic knowledge of the Granby series in the bottom, top and takedown position. Our counselors will motivate, teach and supervise your child very seriously. We encourage young athletes to bring a partner with them if they are not part of a youth group attending camp. Fathers will be charged $250(overnight camp) to attend camp with their sons. Anyone 10 and under needs to have a responsible adult with them.

What techniques are taught at the Granby Wrestling Camps?

We have designed our camps to facilitate your entire teams needs. You can bring every team member to ensure buidling team UNITY, a key to winning team championships. The young inexperienced wrestlers can attend the technique camp. This will provide them the opportunity to have success immediately and will provide you the opportunity to move along quicker in your practice room. The more experienced wrestler can opt for the team camp. This gives your wrestlers that have been to camp several times, the opportunity to master the small details that make all the difference in the world, as well as get match experience, which there is no substitution for. They will wrestle at least 10 matches and get 12 hours of driling and learning. We are making a committment to provide more personal attention to your athletes than any other camp in the country.
