The Pennsylvania Olympic Regional Training Center (PRTC) has announced its Freestyle & Greco Kickoff Camp will take place on April 6 and April 7 at Penn. The camp is free and open to all high school wrestlers who meet the criteria to train at an RTC, live within 250 miles of Philadelphia, and have an updated USA Wrestling card.

Freestyle/Greco Kickoff Camp Dates

  • April 6: 10a-12p and 2-4p
  • April 7: 9-11a and 1:30-3p

The kickoff camp is the start of the PRTC’s training and competitive season for area wrestlers who will compete in Freestyle and Greco competitions this spring and summer. Participating wrestlers will train at the highest level and learn international techniques from world-class coaches and open competitors.

PRTC Executive Director Brandon Slay will direct the camp alongside PRTC Olympic athletes, University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University coaches and wrestlers, and several special guests. Coach Slay is the 2000 Olympic Champion and was a 2012 and 2016 Olympic Coach. He was recently chosen by USA Wrestling to be the 2019 Cadet World Team Coach this August in Bulgaria.
