Best summer camp for the $$$?

Recommended Posts

I attended this camp about 3 weeks before I went to Fargo.  A few others had the same Idea, it was a great experience for the simple fact of the caliber of wrestlers that where there.  On top of that you can tell Jeff Jordan loves what he does and actually cares about the wrestlers, he knew everyones name by the time they left and he even takes care of you while you are there.  Two examples: 1. I forgot my pillow(dumb I know) and he saw me without one approached me and asked me why I didn't ask him for one earlier. 2. My kneepads where junk so he gave me one of his, I don't imagine at a bigger camp like IU or OSU that Goldman or Ryan would give you one of their kneepads.  Possibly the biggest benefit to this camp is if you come from a team that doesnt practice drilling correctly, he gets the idea across quickly.  So overall, you wrestle with the best kids in the nation, he takes care and cares for every wrestler there and you learn how to drill properly.  It was a huge confidence booster and helped me out tremendously in high school.  It was worth every penny and I would recommend it to anyone that has the desire to work hard and get better.

Check out the "Wall of Fame" on www.jordantrained.com, many familiar names from Indiana and around the country.  I would post it but I'm not sure about the copyright laws and it's a fairly large list.   Note the first 2 Indiana names you come to are Blake Maurer and Alex Tsirtsis!

Another plus at Jordans is in the live sessions usually David Taylor, Nick Brascetta, Felipe Martinez, some Troy Christian state champs, and other Ohio studs come in to roll around. I was looking at the chart that Raley and Tsirtsis went to and it had Taylor, the Stiebers, Destin McCauley, and many other top ranked wrestlers in the country.

David maldonado put together a pretty good camp a few years back.  It was cheap (like $100)  and it had Cael Sanderson,  Bobby Douglas,  David Maldonado,  and Billy Maldonado.

Yes you get a tremedous amount out of Jeff Jordan's camp. It is a very efficient camp. It is in Ohio just north of Dayton.

 

Chertows camp covers a wider spectrum of tecnique because he brings in clinicians, while Jeff Jordan has his high school staff and Graham graduates.

I can attest to the Culver camp.  My son went there last year and absoutely loved it.  He said he worked hard and learned alot but he also had some fun.  We had a team go so it was discounted a little bit.  If any one has a chance to send their child there, this is the camp to do it.  My son loved Mark Perry as a coach and will be estatic to know that he is going to be there again this year.  You can count on  my son returning!!!

We now officially have both Mark Perry and Angel Escobedo confirmed. We are waiting for Nate Gallick to get back to the states. He will contact us as soon as he checks his schedule. Either way...$275 for a four day camp with Angel and Mark is worth it in itself. There's a reason we call it the CMA National Champ Camp! Brochures/camp website should be up and running by the end of next week. Shoot me an email with your address if you'd like a brochure mailed to you or if you'd like more information.
