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 150 students with some driving 3-5 hours, round trip, to train with Nick at their weekly training sessions, which operate in Missouri and Illinois.

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.

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 room(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.

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. PWA is a great AND very affordable way to get to the top…. think of us as a year-round training camp.


All other PWA rooms are COED, so feel free to join us at those locations if you choose! However, we have set this night aside for the girls only, so that they have a night for themselves.



The higher the commitment level of the student, the higher the level of training we are able to provide.


$120 per wrestler per month, TRAIN AT YOUR OWN PACE

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 (see schedule for PWA – Core Skills practices) at no additional cost, as long as we have space (which we generally ALWAYS do).

What We Offer

Who Can Join PWA – Core Skills?

We take any wrestler who has wrestling experience and as desire to set fire to their wrestling career. Ages for PWA – Core Skills are 14-19 for High School academy and 7-14 for the Youth academy.

$140 per wrestler per month, YEAR-ROUND COMMITMENT

PWA Elite is a year-round training program offered to the most dedicated and involved wrestlers.

In this program, we require wrestlers to make a year-round commitment so that we can train in all vital areas of wrestling (Level I, II and III). PWA Elite wrestlers get access to multiple nights per week of training.

If your wrestler is in high school, you may want to sign up for our 8 month PWA Elite program. Our Elite program is open-enrollment. Cost for PWA Elite is $139/month and allows the kids access to 2 nights of PWA High School training as well as the Thursday Elite practice…. so 3 practices per week. Most kids come just 1-2 times per week, however. The fee is the same regardless of how you decide to take advantage of the training nights.

PWA Elite is not an All-Star program. We do not believe in recruiting the most talented kids, nor turning away the average kids. PWA Elite, whether it be our high school program or our youth program, is simply a place for the year round wrestlers to train alongside athletes who also are making this next level of commitment to the sports. For us coaches, this enables us to expand our drill regimen and offer a faster paced practice.


PWA-PINNACLE is built for the most serious wrestler. Designed for someone who wants to wrestle for a top college program on ESPN one day. We have redesigned our amazing World Class Wrestler Program making it possible to implement it into our Purler Wrestling satellite locations. 

PWA-PINNACLE athletes will be using the 8 page, World Class Wrestling Program’s drill plan. However, this will be a small group training atmosphere and drilling ONLY. This is for the athlete who understands the need to become a highly skilled, dangerous, technical wrestler, but does not live near our head quarters or near five state champion partners. 

See the Bullet Points below, for what is included in our PWA-PINNACLE program. 

PWA-PINNACLE is a once a week, year-round training program.

$199 per wrestler per month, YEAR-ROUND COMMITMENT 

(high school = 8 months a year, middle school/youth = 12 months)

This program will consist of hand-picked PWA Elite room kids (invitation only). This program allows for more individualized attention, as well as an expanded drill plan. The focus of this room is to offer more individualized attention and an expanded set of drill routines. In this room, we will also be able to work through more techniques and areas of focus during each practice.

PWA World Class Wrestler Program (WCWP) is a once a week, year-round training program. ***REGISTRATION FULL***

$230 per wrestler per month, BY INVITATION ONLY

YEAR-ROUND COMMITMENT (high school students = 8 months a year, youth/middle school = 12 months)


You must register before you can practice with us. We do NOT take payments at practice. 

This payment system is set up as a 12 month system, however there are NO contracts and PWA members are NOT locked into year round training. Our PWA Elite, Pinnacle, and World Class Wrestler programs are the only program we offer that is a year round commitment for youth and 8 months for high school kids. If you decide to take time off, we can suspend the payments so just email us if that is the case.


We do not take walk-ins at practice, but do offer a full month NO RISK trial. If you would like to train at PWA and ‘see if it is for you’, then simply register and come to 3-4 practices (or an entire month) and get on our mats. If, for any reason, it is not for you, email us so and well suspend the account and refund the tuition.


In addition, if you’d like to bring an intensive training camp to your area, Purler Wrestling travels throughout the year to wrestling rooms all over the country to deliver a top-notch, intensive wrestling camp to your team.  See our Private Team Camps for more information!
