About Warhawk Wrestling Camps

Areas covered in our camps include: mental preparation, strength and power-development, implementing new techniques, drilling techniques, situational wrestling, and hard wrestling. The camp is designed so athletes will get plenty of one-on-one instruction. About 2–3 weeks prior to the start of each camp, specific instructions for reporting to camp and what to bring will be sent to participants.

Team Camp

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Team Camp is focused on the individual wrestlers skill development and maximizing performances through team dual competitions and one-to-one technique feedback. Each team is assigned 1-2 coaches (UWW Coaches/Student-Athletes) that will coach and mentor the team in every technique session and dual meet competition. Following competitions, coaches evaluate team and individual performances and provide skill/drill instruction. UWW camp staff’s consistency with the team allows them to invest in each wrestler on the team in order to provide personalized development. High school coaches will also have breakout sessions with camp staff.

The residence halls are within walking distance of the Williams Center complex and instruction facilities. Campers will be housed two to a room.

Host Your Own Camp

Wisconsin coaches can also run commuter camps and pre-season clinics through UW-W. These camps and clinics are held at a host high school and vary in price and length.

“UW-W Commuter Camps make it easy to get your entire team more mat time and instruction. The UW-W coaching staff as well as their wrestlers come to you and teach in the familiarity of your own wrestling room. They set the tone with intense workouts and connect well with all of the kids. Wrestlers, parents, and coaches alike appreciate that!”

-Frank Cuda, Head Coach of Kettle Moraine High School
