NCUSA will kick off the Fall Folkstyle Season with our first Skills Academy and Tournament in Mooresville, NC.
Talbert Recreation Center will be the site for this exciting pre-season event. Get a great workout AND a great tournament, ALL IN ONE DAY!
Here's what to expect:
8:00-8:45 am Wrestlers arrive and weigh-in as always. We will use Madison weights, grouping wrestlers in round-robin groupings (we will make every effort to get all wrestlers at least 4 matches)
9:00-10:30am Wrestlers will participate in a Skills Academy led by top high school and collegiate coaches/wrestlers.This weekend's Academy will be led by Coaches from Appalachian State! The Academy will focus on basic skill development and drilling, and will also include live situational wrestling.
11:00am-Until Wrestlers will participate in a round robin folkstyle tournament.
The skills academy concept has been used very successfully in Georgia, and we look forward to bringing this exciting concept to North Carolina!
Entry will be $15 per wrestler. Registration will be handled on-site. For more information contact us HERE.
