MEET THE COACHES
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 the coaches 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. GUEST CLINICIAN ANNOUNCEMENTS COMING SOON!
(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).

WHAT TO BRING
Overnight campers must bring:
- Wrestling gear: Wrestling shoes, kneepads, headgear & mouthpiece (optional), etc.
- Clothes: 12-15 sets of workout gear (t-shirts, shorts, socks), sweat tops & bottoms, pants, etc.
- Running shoes

FYI: Laundry will be done for all wrestlers every other day, but please pack generously. It is always better to have too many shirts and shorts than not enough!
The Army and Navy Academy campus offers a 24 hour security system, equipped with campus police and video monitors. Along with the campus police, we will have counselors on hand to supervise. 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).
For those traveling by plane or train, there will be vans available to pick up and escort each camper to the Army and Navy Academy.
Flights should be scheduled into the San Diego International Airport arriving before 10:30am on registration day and leaving after 3:00pm on the final day of camp.
Trains should be scheduled into the Oceanside Amtrak Station arriving before 11:00am on registration day and leaving after 1:30pm on the final day of camp.
We ask for all travel information to be submitted a minimum of 7 days prior to the camp start date. Please fill out the details under Camp Forms or by clicking here.
*Please note: There will be a transport fee of $20 each way added to your camp balance.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE
It is important to note that due to the level of activity an intensive camp requires, we HIGHLY recommend to come to camp in good shape. While this is a wrestling camp where learning/improving technique is a priority, we will also place a large focus on physical activity to push the boundaries to gain a mental edge.
WCW operates in partnership with USA Wrestling and their membership/insurance program. All wrestlers without a current USA Wrestling membership card will incur an $8 fee for coverage during camp. This is the same card used to participate in USA sanctioned tournaments and events. Please note this will be secondary insurance for you in the event it is needed.
We know that not all things in life go as planned, so wrestlers may cancel at any time before 14 days prior to the camp start date. We will refund the amount paid minus the $200 non-refundable deposit. Cancellations within the 14 day window will be issued a credit for 50% of the total amount paid for future camps or clinics. No refunds or credits will be given for any reason on or after the camp start date*.
Let's stay connected! We'll send an email every so often & we'd love to send you an update when we do!
