The 3-day training camp is for those who are serious about improving their skills as a wrestler and who seek to strengthen their knowledge of the sport of wrestling. Every wrestler will be exposed to the basic fundamentals along with new and challenging technique taught by some of the best clinicians in the country. This camp gives an in-depth look at preparation, position, and execution of technique. Whether it is the basic stance position or a complicated finish, this camp will teach technique that is successful at the highest levels.

**Wrestlers must be 12 years of age or older to attend this camp (exceptions may be considered with experience). Due to limited sleeping arrangements for the 3-day camp, we will not have access to separate dorms for the girls. Female wrestlers are welcome as commuters!



The 3-Day Advanced Technique Camp will be held August 10-12

Check-in will be from 8:00 – 9:00am on the 10th. Check-out will be at 5:00pm on the 12th. Details will be e-mailed out shortly after registration, but please feel free to contact us with any questions at any time.



The camp will be held at The Academy by the Sea located in Carlsbad, California. It is centered on a sixteen acre campus perfectly situated on the Pacific Ocean, thirty-five miles north of San Diego and eighty miles south of Los Angeles. Map



At West Coast Wrestling Camps we will be surrounded by world class athletes. They train elite wrestlers every day and know what it takes to be a champion. They specialize in breaking down each technique to the level of every wrestler and are excellent with all ages. We are proud to say that all of these men not only excel in their sport, but also in class and character. Their stories of Desire, Direction, Discipline, Diligence, and Dedication will inspire the next generation of wrestlers to their own success stories.



(Please note that due to changing schedules, not all clinicians are guaranteed to be at each camp. The quality of the head clinicans will stay the same).


Head Clinician: Mark Munoz

“Mark is one of the best technicians I have ever seen. In addition to that, he is a great teacher and outstanding person. My wrestlers, assistant coaches and I love his clinics; they are fun, well organized and full of technique that we can plug in and use immediately.” – Cliff Jarmie (Head Coach Laguna Hills High School)

We will be using the beach for morning runs, team competitions, character building activities, and free time every day. During these activities, we will be using the sand area only! Ocean use is not required during any activity. Wrestlers may go in the water during free time only. Boogie boards will be available for use during this time. Life guards and camp counselors will be on duty at all times we have beach access.



Commuter campers will be expected to be in attendance by 8:30am to join in the morning session. Night sessions will end at 9:00pm. Because of the early start and late let out, all meals will be included along with a camp store to purchase additional food items. Commuter campers must bring wrestling gear (wrestling & running shoes and workout clothes), swimsuits, and an attitude of a champion.



Each wrestler will come away with expert knowledge on the sport of wrestling. All participants will be given a booklet containing the techniques taught during the camp, as well as a character file with several inspirational quotes, stories, and testimonies. The purpose behind this is to encourage the campers to become students of the sport. We hope that the campers will come away having had great experiences that will not be forgotten.

Please note that this is an advanced technique camp that will only allow you to reach a higher goal if practiced correctly and consistently. Consistency and hard work paired with world class technique is the key to a successful wrestler!



The campus offers a 24 hour security system, equipped with campus police and video monitors. Along with the campus police, we will have counselors assigned to supervise each wrestler. Although this does not guarantee safety, we feel we are taking the measures necessary to help the camp run as smoothly as possible. (Beach access is locked during non-use times and will be monitored by campus security 24 hours a day. We will also have life guards on duty at all times during our beach use).



All participants must have primary insurance and have signed the release on the application to attend a West Coast Wrestling Camp. We will also provide secondary accidental insurance by Camp Team Insurance, which is included in the camp cost.



We know that not all things in life go as planned, so campers may cancel at any time before the start of the first session. We do ask that you let us know as early as possible so that we may try to fill the spot. We will refund the amount paid minus the $100 non-refundable deposit. Once the camp begins, no refunds will be given.
