MOORHEAD, Minn. — The Minnesota State University Moorhead wrestling program will hold its summer wrestling camps on July 8-10 at Alex Nemzek Hall at the MSUM campus.

MSU-Moorhead DragonsCost for the three-day camp is $80 and includes lunch and a T-shirt. Check in will be held from 7:30-8:30 a.m. on July 8 with the camp running from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day.

Camp clinicians include Dragon head coach Kris Nelson, the 2000 NCAA Division II national champion at 133 pounds; Todd fuller, a three-time Division II national champion; Eric Sanders, a five-time Minnesota high school state champion; Ron Sanders, the long-time head coach at Wabasha-Kellogg High School; Bret Maughan, long-time assistant coach at North Dakota State; and Manny Rivera, an assistant coach for NDSU.

Wrestlers will learn basic and advanced techniques which include: Takedowns, pins, nearfalls, escapes, reversals, riding and counter offense. These steps will be taught in progression. The techniques that are taught are proven to work against all levels of competition. Campers will be placed in situations and wrestle live at the end of each technique session. Wrestlers will be placed in live situations against each other according to size and experience.

“This is a great camp for a very affordable price,” Nelson said. “We are excited to have great clinicians working with us this year with NDSU assistants Manny Rivera and Bret Maughan and Wabasha-Kellogg head coach Ron Sanders.”

Each wrestler should bring with them a water bottle, T-shirt, shorts, headgear and running shoes.
