Cedar Springs Varsity Wrestlers recently traveled to the University of Iowa to attend a four-day Competition Camp.
Each wrestler got 10-12 matches with other high school and collegiate wrestlers around the same weight. Iowa Head Coach and three-time Big Ten Coach of the Year, Tom Brands, and his staff, observed the matches live to give instant feedback on what the wrestlers did well and skill sets that needed improvement. Technique sessions were available to give them the opportunity to break up into groups and learn and apply the advice given to them. They were pushed to improve on all aspects of their wrestling.
Every wrestler wants to be a state champion, a national champion, an Olympic champion. “I would like to see these wrestlers take what they learn at camp and apply it to their upcoming 2016-2017 season,” said head coach Nick Emery. “This will help our wrestlers attain their personal goals and will set them apart from other teams. Wrestling for a cause bigger than yourself gives you twice the strength as wrestling for your own glory.” #Greater than yourself. Wrestling is a physically and mentally tough sport.
