    Relentless Offense Wrestling Camp // July 9th and 10th

    This camp, like our Scoring Machine Wrestling Camp, will be capped at 36 wrestlers. That worked out great for getting personal attention from the counselor/clinician. At the moment this camp is about halfway full. This camp will focus on several areas of offense. Drew Hughes will spend two sessions on how to dominate with riding the legs. Angel Escobedo will spend a two hour session breaking down the front headlock position. Brandon Wright will spend one session on moving your opponent to create opportunities for shooting from space. He will use another session to show his breakdown, tilting, and pinning strategies. Mason Parris will cap the camp off by showing shots and takedowns from different ties.

  2. I wanted to recognize Columbus North's Brigham Kleinhenz for being awarded the Bartholomew County Male Athlete of the Year award. Brigham is an All-state athlete in three sports: Football, Wrestling, and Pole Vaulting. He represents the model our program will continue to strive for. He is one of the most unassuming young men you will meet. Humble and always looking for ways to serve. Brigham comes from a long line of successful Kleinhenz athletes. He did not start wrestling until his freshman year! I believe all of the brothers wrestled and his sisters were managers for past teams. Super family! Angel Escobedo was the keynote speaker for the awards. Very cool! A big night for wrestling in Columbus as Graham Rooks and Nick South shared the honor of best wrestler of the year. http://www.therepublic.com/2018/06/08/columbus_a_big_winner_when_it_comes_to_fan_support/

    Columbus North welcomes Matt Joyce as the new head coach! Coach Joyce wrestled 2 years at Manchester University, was an assistant coach at Greenfield where he had the opportunity to coach a few state qualifiers/placers, and was most recently the head coach at Western Boone where he was working on building the program.

    Wrestling Academies

    If you are in an area that is not in very close proximity to a solid academy, there are a few things that you can do to amplify your club kids wrestling. 1. Have some of the top academy coaches do some clinics instead of your regular club practice. This will be a learning experience for both kids and coaches. See if they will bring a few of their studs to wrestle with your kids too. Your kids will love experiencing someone different and it is always eyeopening for your wrestlers when they say, "That is what you tell us all of the time, coach." 2. Take some field trips to some of the academies and drop in to wrestle with the big boys. Again, a learning experience and who does not like a field trip that involves wrestling. 3. Think out of the box. Or smash your box and build a new one. Take some of the things that you learn from those experiences and apply those to your club. One of the hardest things to replicate is the level of practice partners skill and intensity. If a family is able to, don't discourage them from attending an academy.
