Purler Wrestling Academy

Boys and Girls Wrestling School for Youth & High School Wrestlers

PWA offers year-round training for the serious, disciplined, and dedicated wrestler. However, the amount of training is up to you.

Purler™ Wrestling, Inc is a family-owned and operated wrestling company which was established in 1999 and has since grown to offer a wide range of training opportunities for the entire nation.

Purler™ Wrestling Academy commonly carries over 400+ students with some driving 3-5 hours round trip to train with Nick at their weekly training sessions, which operate in Missouri and Illinois.

PWA offers 4 different program options to fit your wrestler’s level (Beginner, Core Skills, Elite, and World Class Wrestling Program), as well as girls’ only practices.

About Purler Wrestling Academy

No Contracts for PWA Core Skills

Our PWA Core Skills program has no contracts, cancel anytime. However, if you decide to pause your training account, we require that you give us a one month’s notice. As you know, wrestling requires partners and in order to offer a tremendous program and in all fairness to your child’s partner(s), please do us the courtesy of this one month notice before you pause your training with us.

A Great Value

One year of PWA training (1x per week) equals the same amount of training you would get by signing up for 5 full weeks of summer camp, which would cost $2,500 plus travel and misc. expenses. PWA is a great AND very affordable way to get to the top. Think of us as a year-round training camp.

Training With Staff

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 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 location(s) they are attending. [email protected]

Training Partners

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 weight class.

Those Who Stay Will Be Champions

Not only is Purler™ Wrestling Academy the nation’s largest wrestling school, but also one of its most successful. We have been in the wrestling training business since 1999. Our students have won many team national titles, as well as countless state and national medals and awards. Our students have earned over $4 million in college wrestling scholarships.

PWA Core Skills Wrestling Program

PWA Core Skills

This is our month to month academy for both high school and youth wrestlers.

While training at PWA Core Skills is offered on a year-round basis, the athletes can come and go as they please, depending on their other sport commitments, etc. The CORE skills of wrestling (Level I) are hammered home in the PWA Core Skills wrestling rooms, and many of the top wrestlers in college wrestling have used the PWA Core Skills program in order to build themselves into elite wrestlers. PWA Core Skills athletes can train as much as 2-3 times a week at no additional cost, as long as we have space (which we generally ALWAYS do).
