We are excited to offer a GIRLS only option of our popular Competition Hammer Camp! Our Purler Wrestling Girls Academy coaches, Ty Purler and Tanner Irwin, are instructing our female-only camps. These are the same Purler Wrestling Academy’s Competition Hammer Camps we offer as “in-season” wrestling camps that are held ten different weekends from August through May. Those camps are coed, but do not offer on-site housing for females.

By choosing our girls only Competition Hammer Camps females can stay on campus overnight.  Two of these camps, one in May and one in October, are dedicated exclusively to leg riding!

It is very common for our staff to step in and drill / spar / go live with the wrestlers. Obviously we are not there to win or go hard, but to help your wrestlers. If anyone would rather their wrestler (Purler Camper) not train with our coaches, you are expected to OPT OUT by sending an email to us and giving us your wrestler’s name(s) as well as the camp(s) they are attending. [email protected]

Partnering up at Purler Wrestling Camps / Academy, etc: We always ask the wrestlers to partner up at all of our training events, so that  they can train with any and all amazing partners we have. It is your child’s responsibility to choose partners close to their age and wt class.

Camps run from August – May, and the area of focus of the camps are as follows:

Ten weekends are dedicated to mastering the Purler™ Wrestling Academy Elite program’s CORE set of drill routines, the same program that helps produce over 120 state medalists per season.

Two weekends (May & October) will be dedicated to LEG RIDING ONLY. I have recently sent my Leg Riding System video series to a Div. I college wrestling coach, who had asked to see how we are turning out so many elite leg riders! We are known nationwide as the best leg riders in the USA. Do not miss these Competition Hammer Camps.

Please feed your kids a late breakfast/early lunch on Saturday. We push back times on Day 1 as a way to save many of our athletes’ parents from needing to buy a hotel on Friday night and allow them to drive in on Saturday. We will provide a late lunch and dinner on Saturday, as well as, breakfast and lunch on Sunday. Three day camp gets dinner Sunday night and a breakfast on the last day.

No Snacks Please

We offer a concession stand and every item is priced at $2 for snack items, and $3 for meal type food items (Hot Pockets, Burritos, etc.). NO food or drinks allowed inside the bunk houses or outside of the designated area in the wrestling room. We need to maintain a clean environment for the wrestlers and do not have storage areas for snacks in the bunkhouses. We will have plenty of variety and if your wrestler has any special dietary needs please let us know.

All kids are allowed just 3 pieces of luggage ONLY! Each athlete gets a 3′ x 2′ x 2′ storage shelf and all suitcases/bags must fit into this area. Any wrestler with luggage that doesn’t fit in the storage area will need to unpack their items and parents will need to take the extra luggage home. We must keep our floors cleared for emergency exits, no bags on the floor. Thanks for understanding.

Everyone MUST bring TWIN size bedding, pillow, towels, toiletries, and a water bottle. Put your name on your water bottle.

All refunds issued will be in the form of a camp credit towards any future Purler Wrestling camp with Nick Purler™. A camper dismissed for disciplinary reasons will not be considered for a credit.

Any camper leaving camp due to an injury/illness will be given a credit for the remaining value of the camp. Please remember that wrestling is a contact sport and injuries are a part of that, as well as skin infections. By enrolling in camp you are assuming the risk that your child may be injured, become ill, or have a skin infection and unable to complete camp, and it is understood that credit will be given for only the remaining days’ value.

If a camper chooses to leave camp by their own choice, for any reason, they will not receive a credit for the remainder of camp. Campers are welcome to reschedule their camp dates if space is available. By registering for camp you are agreeing to abide by these cancellation/refund guidelines.
