Individual attention is usually offered to all wrestlers and there is plenty of time devoted to live wrestling also.
A large number of these camps will have college wrestling coaches coming to watch you play but make sure that you pick wrestling camps that are run by the colleges and the college coach. You will get to see what the coach is looking for and YOU WILL BE SEEN.
I get asked by high school wrestlers all the time, “how can I get the college wrestling coach or scout come to watch me play”?
