UPDATE: Cadet, junior national team camp at Olivet on July 8-9
This a resident national team training camp culminating a summer of training. It is mandatory for Team Michigan Fargo competitors barring extreme circumstances. The cost of coaching, room, and two meals is included in your Fargo package. Non-Fargo team members with USAW cards are welcome to train for a cost of $75/wrestler. The primary purpose of the MUSAW Fargo Camp is final preparation for the most prestigious tournament of the year, team-building, and to have fun while we're at it. Following the camp we recommend competitors taper their practice sessions with lighter/shorter/sharp sessions at their local facilities so as to be rested for the event. We are proud that Michigan wrestlers are considered the most well-prepared Fargo Nationals competitors in the country via our training camp system. Contact Al Freeman 248-863-6388 with questions.
More information, camp schedule is available here.
Freestyle and Greco Roman national team camps begin Saturday, May 27. Please see the schedule below for details. We ask that you arrive 30 minutes before practice time in order to hand in necessary paperwork and get other details settled.

Note from National Teams Director Al Freeman:
The camps are extremely valuable. We do make exceptions because we understand that situations arise which make it difficult to hit every camp. On the other hand, one of the reasons that we have been championship caliber in the past is largely a result of preparation. And we want the best-prepared wrestlers on the teams. For each team there is a Saturday before you take off for your Duals Event … on those Saturday’s it is mandatory that you attend for team purposes (gear, money, important last minute logistics, etc., etc.). All of the other opportunities are yours to take advantage of or to waste.
Schoolboys Mandatory Team Kickoff Camp is June 3.
June 10 from 10 a.m. to noon at Holt. Cadets Mandatory Team Kickoff Camp is June 10.
Each camp will have special guest clinicians and a number of the national team coaches will also be present. Not all coaches will be present at each camp because on any given weekend some of them will be coaching at a competition event. There will always be an “MC”, or lead to keep things orchestrated.
Please see the PDF version of the calendar below.
The idea behind the calendar is for parents, wrestlers and coaches to use it as a guide for this spring and summer.
It was created by Michigan USA Wrestling national team coach Al Freeman.
The USA Wrestling Bronze Certification is a comprehensive coaching education program for coaches, parents and volunteers who are committed to expanding their knowledge in the art and science of our sport.
