Tony Purler’s Girls Wrestling Camp
“I sent my 14 your old and 11 year old daughters to Tony’s Take Down Machine camp this past summer and it was a great experience for them. It really helped them both improve as wrestlers. Shortly after my 14 year old took second at Fargo.”

Tony’s thoughts on the 2019 Girls Wrestling Camp
This wrestling camp provides quality developmental wrestling skills and is JUST for GIRLS. The girls will get great at the core skills required in the sport and they will remember them. Everything that we worked on the first session will be worked on during the last session.
This technique camp will cover a scoring system so the girls will have a ‘routine’ of what to do from the common areas they find themselves in every match. Whether a wrestler finds herself in a good position or a bad one, she still needs to know how to build position and wrestle out of it. Watch college wrestling and you will see that they get into the same positions as youth and HS wrestlers, only the college wrestlers are more knowledgeable at wrestling, recovering, and scoring from these very common areas. This is what the Girls camp will focus on and the wrestlers are sure to get a lot out of it. After attending the camp, wrestlers will become fundamentally sound in the core positions they find themselves in during every match. By only focusing on this aspect of the sport, and not showing a ton of moves that they rarely need, the drill time is freed up to turn the later sessions into a training environment where the kids are hitting explosive reps, as opposed to being circled up around me learning new moves every session.
