Iowa Style Camp
August 20-23, 2014

Stone Bridge High School, Ashburn, VA
This years clinicians are 2x NCAA All american Mike Evans and 3x NCAA All American Montell Marion, both are from The University of Iowa.

The goal of Iowa Style Wrestling Camps is to prepare young athletes with the physical and mental skills required for success at ALL levels in wrestling. This is best achieved through group instructional training combined with one-on-one coaching. We also strive to speak to our athletes on the mental aspects that can help them succeed in any sport or activity.

Mental strength along with action packed wrestling is what Iowa wrestling is known for nation-wide. It is our belief, that this is the edge that “Iowa Style” wrestling has over the rest of the competition, and this is what we hope to spread to our athletes.

Each athlete will receive specific individual attention and detail in their technique. The end result of this camp is to ignite the fire and passion to wrestle, and steer wrestlers in the path to train and succeed in the sport at the highest level.
