Augsburg Cancels 2020 Wrestling Camps

The 2020 Augsburg Wrestling Camps have been canceled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. They plan on resuming camps in 2021

Augsburg Wrestling Camps statement:

“After 34 years of Augsburg Wrestling Camps, we are very sad to announce that we have decided to cancel our 2020 Camps due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Although Minnesota Governor Walz has authorized small group gatherings again, social distancing is nearly impossible in the sport of wrestling. This was a tough decision to make but it is the best one given our current circumstances. The health and safety of our campers, their families and our staff have always been a top priority, which is why we have to make this decision.

Two NCAA champions help train next wave of AV wrestlers

Apple Valley wrestling coach Josh Barlage knew it would be difficult to keep the attention of children, some of whom were younger than 10, through a day-long camp. So he called for help.

If anybody thought about goofing off – well, camp instructor Mark Hall wasn’t having it.
