    Michigan RTC/Elite Development Program

    In August 2011, the Michigan Regional Training Center (M-RTC) was sanctioned by USA Wrestling and launched through support from the Cliff Keen Wrestling Club. The M-RTC allows for broader participation and increased development in the international styles for wrestlers meeting specific performance criteria at the Senior, Junior, and Cadet age levels.

    M-RTC Elite Development Program: Our elite development program is designed to fuel the Olympic Dream for wrestlers grades 9-12 who consistently train and compete Freestyle and/or Greco-Roman wrestling. Participants will build on an existing knowledge base of advanced wrestling fundamentals by committing themselves to technical development, drilling/position sparring, and competitive live wrestling. Each wrestler will achieve a higher level of mastery of the sport through: 1) exposure to techniques and training that are currently used at the elite levels of collegiate and international wrestling; 2) practices that are focused and challenging; and 3) immersion in an environment that will increase physical capabilities, competitive limitations and mental toughness. These organized training sessions are focused on Freestyle wrestling technique, strategies, and tactics to prepare wrestlers for success at the numerous state, regional, national, and international competitions at the Cadet and Junior levels.
