Purdue Wrestling Camp

October 3-4, 2015

We just finished up a great weekend of Preseason Training with Coach Ersland, Coach Todd, and Doug Welch! Coach Ersland taught his underhook series which is a great progression from the skill set we put in from underhook this summer at CUSAWC. NCAA Qualifier Doug Welch then put his bottom stuff in and mat returns, some great technique and did a great job running a room. Coach Todd on Day 2 taught how to put 2nd level and 3rd level offense on which is a skill we are trying to teach at Carmel USA Wrestling Club now. It was awesome to see how Purdue teaches their hard set ups to shots and re-attacks!

Thank you Purdue Wrestling for spending the weekend with us and helping us get in shape for the upcoming season! Check out some action shots on our Facebook Page.

CUSAWC at IndianaMat Hoosier Preseason Open

September 13th, 2015

Coming into the day the theme was "score the next point, be a competitor". As a staff we think the boys enforced this attitude on the mat very well this weekend. We are very proud in the maturity both physically and mentally of the boys this offseason. We still have a lot of work to do in these last 2 months before HS Season starts. Great showing lots of improvement has been made since the spring, but now it is time to reflect and continue to get better. We will be adding gazoni escapes from our short sit series on bottom, and working on attacking faster from space in practice this week!
