Annual wrestling camp starts May 31

The annual Wrestle the World Training Camp will take place May 31-June 4 at Pagosa Springs High School.

The purpose of the camp is to develop skills in the sport of wrestling for high school-age athletes and younger. Conditioning and instructional sessions each morning are followed by competition in the afternoons and evenings.

Numerous teams from around the Four Corners area enroll in the camp to receive coaching instruction from one of the nation’s premier wrestling coaches, Terry Brands, from the University of Iowa.

Brands is well known in the wrestling community for winning two NCAA titles, two world championships and a bronze medal in the 2000 Olympic Games.

Tentatively scheduled to assist Coach Brands in the camp will be members of the 2009-10 NCAA National Championship team from the University of Iowa: Daniel Dennis, Ryan Morningstar, Luke Lofthouse, Ethan Lofthouse and Pagosa Springs graduate Joe DuCharme. In addition, Pagosa Springs graduates and current collegiate athletes Michael Martinez, University of Wyoming, and Daren Hockett, Western State College, will be in attendance as assistants.
