Tony Purler’s Youth and Summer Wrestling Camps

“I have been attending Tony Purler’s camps since I was in second grade.  His technique teaches chain wrestling showing you who to move in response to what you opponent is doing.  It creates scoring opportunities in all positions.  His teaching style is clear and easy to understand.  Tony is a great coach for all ages and skill levels.” – 2X Iowa High School State Champion

Why Choose Tony Purler Camps?


I believe smaller groups equals more attention. With approximately 50-60 wrestlers at each camp, adequate attention can be given to each wrestler. Nobody wants to share a wrestling mat with over 300 wrestlers. Tony Purler’s youth and summer wrestling camps in Kansas City offer a class size that is conducive to learning and training.


At Purler wrestling camps, a scoring system will be taught. There’s not a revolving door of clinicians showing sporadic technique every session. What we work on at our youth and summer wrestling camps during day one will be covered on day five. The benefit? Wrestlers will understand and develop skills, not simply shown them.


I coach positioning, not just technique. Wrestling is position-based and not just based on moves. By covering a system, or scoring routine, on the final day of the camp wrestlers will master positioning when on a leg, as well as all other common areas of the sport.

Wrestlers who only learn moves but have no understanding of how to ‘wrestle for position’, will only see their techniques work when they outclass their opponent. The common theme in all my youth and summer wrestling camps will always be to wrestle for position, not points. The points will follow position.


Numerous college coaches, world team members, and NCAA champions send their kids and wrestlers to my Kansas City-area youth and summer wrestling camps. My business model is all about positive word of mouth and repeat customers.

I do the best job possible at providing a camp system based on value, benefit, productive sessions, and also do my best to have the parents of the wrestlers see the huge improvement in their son’s wrestling after the camp. All parents are encouraged to attend the last hard drill session to critique the job I’ve done and to see how much their wrestler has retained and progressed. I know of no other camp that asks the parents to attend the last session so they can witness what their son has learned the over the course of the wrestling camp.

Getting your youth club, high school team, small group, or son wrestling tough and winning with ALL the common positions of our sport simply is not that difficult. Camps are SUPPOSED to help wrestlers get better quickly – not to learn trick moves. Kids can learn trick moves on YouTube! Contact Tony Purler and get your kid’s wrestling career back on track! At Purler Wrestling, you learn to wrestle and learn to win. Enroll in a youth and summer wrestling camp designed to improve your wrestler’s skill set today.
