About the Camp

Directed by Coach Huebner this camp is designed for the “Big Man” and the heavyweight, from Junior High to the High School heavyweights.  THIS CAMP IS FOR YOU!  You will learn from the Luther College staff what it takes to be a great “Big Man” on the mat!  Big wrestlers have different needs.  The “Big Man’s” program will focus on the technical needs of larger wrestlers.

This camp includes daily competition, instruction and hard wrestling.  Counselors will be current Luther upper weights wrestlers.   We emphasize modified technique for the Big Man. This includes matches, formal Instruction, supervised drilling, Big Man Tournament and several hours of daily mat time.  Upper weights wrestle differently; let us give you the edge.  All wrestlers will receive two workout t-shirts, water bottle and team picture.


Each day will consist of 3 to 4 hours of technique instruction and drilling, followed by a question and answer period, and ending with an intensive live wrestling session.

Wrestlers will be matched according to age and ability level.

There is a limited enrollment so each camper will have an ideal camper to-clinician ratio (approximately 10:1) and receive plenty of individual instruction.

This camp is open to those who have the big man trait and attitude.  We will show tips and techniques that allow upper weights and heavyweights to accomplish their goals.

You will wrestle with individuals from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa.  We have had wrestlers from across the country attend this UNIQUE BIG MAN ON CAMPUS CAMP as far as Kansas, South Dakota and Colorado.

Campers will be exposed to championship-level technique presented by successful coaches and wrestlers. They will be asked to take notes on the techniques covered, and there will be a technique review session each evening. Campers will also do a significant amount of live wrestling. Each camper will be assigned to a counselor, and each counselor will be assigned to 10 or fewer campers. Thus, campers will get a lot of one-on-one attention. The camp is not designed for beginners.
