Summer Training

The Carolina Wrestling Experience

A unique opportunity to train with the top collegiate and high school programs in North Carolina. 

“The NOVA Wrestling Club summer camp experience was an incredible opportunity for my child. The high quality training definitely made him a better wrestler. The experience made him more confident. My son also came back with a stronger work ethic, more independent, and with a higher sense of responsibility. I could tell an immediate difference in my child. It must have been a tough week of training! He had a blast!”

Dates: July 9-16 | Location: Raleigh & Wilmington, NC | Cost: $675 (not including spending money) | Spots: 12


To begin, wrestlers will attend the NC State University team camp from July 9-12. Wrestlers will stay in the dorms at NC State, and train in historic Reynolds Coliseum. Wrestlers will go through 3 training sessions daily. These include technique sessions, drill sessions, and competition sessions. NC State wrestlers and staff will coordinate sessions. A NOVA WC coach will be on-site at all times.

After the NC State team camp concludes, wrestlers will travel two hours east to Wilmington, NC. The team will arrive on the afternoon of July 12th and depart on July 16th. Wrestlers will stay at Mainstay Suites. Wrestlers will spend the entire day of July 13th exploring historic Wrightsville Beach and enjoying the famous Jungle Rapids Water Park.

On July 14th, the team will have two training sessions with the Port City Pirates wrestling club at the Port City Sports Performance facility. Wrestlers will have the opportunity to meet and train with UFC middleweight title contender Derek Brunson and Bellator middleweight title contender John Salter. Additionally, wrestlers will train with and have full access to Wilmington’s best wrestling coaches and wrestlers.

On the final day (July 15th), the team will participate in the “Cut No More” mini camp where they will spend two training sessions specifically covering cradles from the top position. The coaches will teach wrestlers how to stay in good position, stop opponents first move, ride, score, and pin.
