All camps are held at our new Combative Sports Athletic Center in Moscow Mills, MO (just west of St. Louis).
All wrestlers are required to bring some type of skin protectant, either a foam or a wipe. They are available on Amazon for a reasonable price. Remember, there are no refunds for skin infections. To prevent infections we ask all wrestlers to bring skin wipes with them. We prefer DEFENSE SOAP wipes, but as long as they are anti-bacterial any wipe will do.
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.

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.
With an 8%+ cancellation rate in the camp industry, Purler Wrestling, like every camp in the USA, does not offer refunds for missed camps, cancellations (for any reason), or for athletes who come to camp but do not finish the camp (for any reason).
However, unlike everyone else, we do offer some training opportunities so that you are able to stay on track. For all wrestlers who join our summer camps, but who cannot attend, we will offer a full camp credit to attend our Competition Camps, which are held 10 months per year (Aug – May). In addition, for those who do attend the camp, but who are forced to go home due to injury or illness, we will do the same.
