How to pick the best wrestling camp in your state and for your budget

It’s that time of year..

Wrestlers and parents throughout the country are searching for the right wrestling camp for their youth or high school wrestler. Like most parents, wrestlers or coaches, you are hitting the Internet and using Google, Yahoo!, Bing and other search engines to insert key words looking for camps that fit your need.

It is a good idea, to use Google and type in key words such as Best Wrestling Camps, Top 10 wrestling camps, Youth Wrestling Camps or how to find a summer wrestling camp. In fact, those questions were a big part of the basis of writing the book, The Ultimate Guide to Wrestling Camps. When I was the editor of a leading national wrestling web site, I often got asked the question: “Where do I send my kid to wrestling camp?” It wasn’t just me, however. It was others. Rick Kacher, owner of the Adam Wrestling Takedown Machine, said it too – he would get that question 200 times a year. Parents were interested in his product and then would ask “where do I send my kid to wrestling camp?” Or “How do I know the best wrestling camp out there?”

This shows that when it comes to choosing a wrestling camp, there is a lot of confusion on what is the best route to take. There is a lot of information out there, no doubt, but it takes time to sift through that information. That’s where The Ultimate Guide to Wrestling Camps helps. The book sifts through the information and asks the same questions you ask in your web searches. Questions such as:

What’s the best wrestling camp out there?
How do I know which camp is better than others?
What camp will help my son or daughter become a state champion?
When is the right age to go to wrestling camp?
What type of camp is right for me?
How do I find a camp that is affordable?

And much more…

While searching the Internet via keywords is a great way to get started, let that just be the start of your search. Here are five ways to pick a wrestling camp – once you’ve identified the camps you want to attend via Internet searches:

1. Contact the camp directly and ask questions
2. Look for online reviews about the camp
3. Talk to others in your club, on your high school team or the coaching staff, to see what more they know about the camps you are interested in.
4. Look for the right dates, cost, location and type of camp (such as intensive camp, team camp, technique camp, big man camp, commuter camp, day camp, etc)
5. Narrow the choices down to two. Pick three to five that you are really interested in, then shorten your choice down to the top two and make your final decision from there.

Or, you could order The Ultimate Guide to Wrestling Camps, and find out for yourself, from over 40 top college coaches, high school coaches, Olympians, national champions, All-Americans, parents and other youth wrestlers who have experienced and the answers to your questions.

Best wrestling camps: Finding wrestling camps in Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi

For those in the southern United States, such as Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi, it may be more difficult to find a wrestling camp near you. When searching for the best wrestling camps in Louisiana, best wrestling camps in Arkansas or best wrestling camps in Mississippi, there are less options than when searching for the best wrestling camps in Texas, best wrestling camps in Florida and/or best wrestling camps in Oklahoma or best wrestling camps in Georgia, for example.

But, that doesn’t mean you can’t find a wrestling camp within your budget. Here are some tips on how to do just that:

1. Reach out to local high schools and clubs: Look for coaches, private clubs and camps through your local or regional teams. You don’t have to travel far or spend a lot of money to find a camp.

2. Research camps on sites like USA Wrestling or other popular wrestling web sites: Look for camps by keywords. For example, search for “Lousiana Wrestling Camps, “Arkansas Wrestling Camps” or “Mississippi Wrestling camps” on Google to find wrestling camps close to you.

3. Contact national clubs and see if they have satelite camps. J Robinson Wrestling camps, for example, takes its camps across the country, offering in various locations. Ken Chertow wrestling camps also offers camps throughout the country, using hotel ballrooms as great training sites. J Robinson camps set up at colleges across the country. If you find a wrestling camp you are interested in, contact them to see if they will be in your state or nearby.

4. Consider traveling with a group: If you have a large group of wrestlers who want to attend a wrestling camp in Louisiana, Arkansas or Mississippi, for example, consider contacting a camp and asking for a group discount. They may be able to accomodate your needs and lessen the camp entry fee, or assist with travel accomodations.

It can be tough to find the best wrestling camps if there is not as much wrestling near your location, but with some research and by making some contacts, you can find a wrestling camp that fits your budget and needs.
