This is the 16th year we have run this camp in NY. We are so lucky to have this relationship with a powerhouse team like NC State. Coach Popolizio is renowned for turning NC State into a national powerhouse.

The philosophy of this camp is to develop the wrestling mindset while arming the student-athletes with the skills and understanding of what it takes to thrive at any level of wrestling and also in life. The same skills needed to be great on the mat serve you in every aspect of school and business. Coach Pat is sought by Fortune 500 companies to teach his brand of leadership. His teams are remarkable for the rate they improve. At Binghamton and now NC State, Coach Popolizio has climbed the rankings to make NC State a perennial Top 5 team, providing instruction not only in technical wrestling moves but in “Wrestling IQ” and strategies as well as rules and norms that young wrestlers need to comprehend.
