2017 Manhattan SUMMER CAMP, AGES 5-14

In a word, this camp is about MOVEMENT!  We teach wrestling fundamentals along with non-wrestling games.  Dance and Yoga are included each day.  Wrestling groups are created by both age and skill. All activities take place under the careful supervision of Glenn Rodriguez, Jon Burgos, and Wrestling Alumni who are helping to continue the strong legacy of this great sport!  Boys and girls, ages 5-8, and 9-14 are welcome.  Our camp will include:


*Innovative mat games to help build core strength                                                                *Wrestling technique for beginners and experienced wrestlers

*Games and Drills from the USA Youth Wrestling Curriculum                                               *Live wrestling
