Wrestling Camp 7-9 April at the AIS

Hi Everyone,

We thought it might be time for another wrestling camp at the AIS!  Wrestling Nationals are in early May, and the Commonwealth Games Trials are in November so it’s time to get wrestling!

The format will be fairly similar to previous camps with the first session on Friday evening, three sessions on Saturday, and one session Sunday morning. We hope to focus a little more on competition strategies and preparing people for matches. Almost everything we will do will be applicable to MMA and BJJ for those of you who aren’t interested in competing in wrestling.

This camp will also be open to male participants. We thought we’d try it and see how it goes! We will have extra coaches as well so there will be more one-on-one instruction on the mat.  As with previous camps the head coaches will be 2008 Olympian, Kyla Bremner, and former Polish National Team Coach, Krzysztof Grzywniak.

The forms and camp info can be found here:

  • A new “fit to wrestle form” also must be filled out before beginning training – this will be supplied at your first training session, please ask for it.
  • This WAIVER2017 for personal injury must also be signed.
  • Fees for the year will be $100 and should be paid before training (please contact if any issues).
  • Each member over 18 years must have a Working With Vulnerable People card – these are free for volunteers (you), information on application can be found here. If you already have one, you do not need another, just supply us with the number on the card.

We look forward to a great season!
