Coaching Staff

Coaches Jamie Camacho & Gene Edwards at the 2013 WCL Championships.


Where Dedication, Leadership and Experience Build Champions

The dedicated and experienced coaching staff consists of numerous seasoned coaches and successful ex-wrestlers and other athletes. Most coaches in the club either have sons currently in the program or have had sons advance through the program onto higher endeavors. The coaches not only strive to hone the skills of wrestling in a fun, safe environment but also build lifetime skills of confidence, character, and courage.  As one coach stated, ” I not only love developing youth into becoming better wrestlers but most importantly better people.”  All of our coaches are certified USA wrestling coaches and some are copper, bronze or silver certified.
