J Robinson Wrestling Camps


Now entering our 38th year in 2015, J Robinson Wrestling Camps have trained more than 30,000 wrestlers with a philosophy that focuses on teaching technical skill development, physical preparation, mental toughness, and life skills. Our goal is to prepare wrestlers to win by challenging them to overcome physical fatigue and mental stress every day. The lessons we teach have an immediate and long-term impact on the athletes that translates to success on the mat, in the classroom, and in life. The work ethic and discipline instilled at our camps becomes a part of their core, creating tough, determined athletes who channel their skills towards achievement in all aspects of life.

We offer 3 different camp options: Intensive, Technique, and Competition. To determine which camp is best for you or your wrestler, read more below or call us at 612-349-6585.

Intensive Camps

J Robinson Intensive Camps are known as the most challenging and life-changing wrestling camps in the country. The training and conduct expectations of our Intensive Camps are influenced by J Robinson's experience as an Army Ranger and by the protocol of Army Ranger School, which focuses on both physical and mental development. The rigorous training model operates on the principle that intense challenges bring about significant change, so we provide a structured, accountable environment that pushes athletes to their physical and mental limits. Through 4 workouts a day that include technical skill sessions, live wrestling, drilling, running, weight lifting, and cross-training, athletes will be taught a new meaning of hard work. They will learn how positive character traits—Discipline, Dedication, Sacrifice, Hard Work, Responsibility, Accountability, and Service—contribute to their success as an athlete and as a human being. Read more…

Technique Camps

Featuring a high-profile slate of national and regional staff at each camp, J Robinson Technique Wrestling Camps emphasize technical skill development and strategy. Our curriculum covers everything from basic fundamentals—stance, positioning, takedowns, and escapes—to advanced technique and strategy, including set-ups, finishes, and drilling. We separate wrestlers into small groups determined by age, weight and ability, so each wrestler will receive a level of training that fits his or her skill and experience level. The philosophy of our Technique Camps also relies on teaching the disciplined, focused mindset that is the trademark of all J Robinson Camps. Read more…

Competition Camp

The J Robinson Competition Camp is a not a team camp. The goal is to increase each individual's ability to succeed in competition through a format that includes a minimum of 8 full-length, refereed matches within a weight-based bracket, two daily technique sessions, and daily lessons on J Robinson's Four Principles of Competition: preparation, performance, evaluation, and adjustments. The camp is run by the nation’s best teachers and college wrestlers, allowing athletes to train with elite-level talent and leave camp better prepared to apply their skill set in the heat of competition. Read more…
