Darkhorse - NC State Training Camps

NC State Team.JPG

Darkhorse is proud to announce two Technique and Training Camps partnered with some of the athletes (TBD) and coaches from the NC State University Wrestling Team.  Join us for Camp #1 (on June 27-29th, from 8:00am until 3pm), and for Camp #2 (on July 23rd-25th, from 8:00am-3:00pm), to learn the system and tactics that have propelled the Wolfpack to one of the Nations Elite programs.

Both of these camps will focus on high level technique presented in a systematic manner allowing wrestlers plenty of repetitions to master each technique.  All technique taught will focus on the finer details and each session will build upon the previous session. In addition, there will be daily seminars and discussions on many important areas including mental preparation, understanding the college recruiting process, proper nutrition and weight management. 

This camp is open to ANY and ALL wrestlers.
