OLIVET, MI -- Cadets and juniors on the Michigan national team will make their final preparations at Olivet College during camp on July 8-9. 

All of the details and schedule can be found here

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.

The freestyle and greco wrestlers from Michigan are looking to build on the state's 2016 performance.

We had three national champions and 30 all-Americans in the state’s best ever finish at the 2016 ASICS/Vaughan USA Wrestling freestyle and Greco-Roman national championship.

ANN ARBOR, MI – Michigan freestyle and Greco roman national team camps begin this Saturday at the Bahna Center at the University of Michigan.

Practice begins promptly at 10 a.m., which means you should be there by 9:30 a.m., according to National Teams Director Al Freeman.

Some have originally indicated interest in competing with the national teams, but did not leave order/info sheets at the state meet.

Treasurer Tom Shaver would like to have all forms and money collected at this Saturday’s camp if possible in order to move forward with team formations.

The schoolboy, cadet and junior national duals teams are currently being formed based on the contact information that directors/coaches have.

If you know of anyone who is interested, but who hasn’t communicated with us, it would be a good idea to bring them to this camp.

Contact Coach Freeman with questions.
