||New for 2013: A Complete Camp Revamp!
This year, big changes are in store for our camps. First, all Attack System Camps will now take place at our brand new Attack System Training Facility in Pataskala. This facility has roughly 3 times the space of our old facility in Reynoldsburg.
The following changes are also taking place in our camp system:
** 2 Attack System Camps: One on the feet, one on the mat. This allows us to spend more time from each position.
** Shorter Camps. Each of the above mentioned camps, as well as the Intensive Camp, are one day shorter in length.
** Lower Price: Attack System Camps are $300, Intensive Camp is $350. Youth camp remains the same length and same cost.
** Camp LImits. We will only take around 30 athletes for all of our camps (20 for Youth camp). This is to give each athlete more specialized attention.
** Only camp discount is for Club Simpson members ($70). The cost for all the camps has been reduced, so you are already saving money.
** No separate deposit amount, and total amount. Cost of the camp is what the deposit amount used to be.
** Because we are taking fewer athletes, expect these camps to fill up a lot faster! Apply early to hold your spot in these camps!
In Summary: Brand New Facility; Lower camp fee, fewer athletes (= more individual attention)
Welcome to the New Attack System Camp model!
Attack System Wrestling Camps: An Inside Look
| Specialized Training System:
1. Learn the technique, broken down as neccessary
2. Drill it in steps if necessary, and then in whole
3. Drill many reps with a good partner, light resistance
4. Use it in live wrestling situations
5. Review and drill same technique in later sessions
What you see, you Learn
Every evening we drill techniques taught earlier in the day (step 5), as well as
techniques learned earlier in camp. This
leads to high retention levels for our athletes, and is an essential component of our training system.
Essential Elements of the Attack System:
1. Stance and Positioning to shut down the opponent, including shutting down opponents' underhooks, 2 on 1, head ties
2. Breaking opponent's position so you can attack
3. Essential Scoring Techniques that work at the highest level, against the best kids, including leg attacks and counter attacks
Essential Top Position Wrestling: Bump-Spiral System
1. Pressure: Get pressure on your opponent so you can break his position.
2. Control your opponent by getting underneath him
3. Turn him using the easiest, most effective methods
4. Pin techniques - making your opponent want to get off the mat!
Down Position System: An attacking offense
1. Positioning (keeping your base) and handfighting
2. Escape methods: standup, granby, power sit series.
3. Down Counters: leg riding, spiral, tightwaist chop, tilts, cradle, etc.
3 Biggest Mistakes made by camps:
1. Showoff camps: Big name, high dollar athletes come in, flash their medals and awards and sell their goods, but aren't really training athletes. This can be entertaining for kids to see and hear, and has some motivational benefits - but usually very little learning takes place.
2. Show and Tell camps: Athletes are taught way too many moves, and don't get to work on them long enough to learn them.
3. Factory camps: Way way way too many kids! Big camps that are money making machines. Your athletes will learn more in smaller camps where the athlete-coach ratio is lower.
Attack System Training for the Youth Wrestler: Our Goals
1. Teach athletes the Youth variation of our system, which will work for them as long as they are competing.
2. (And most important) We want them to still be wrestling a decade from now. In our youth training system, unlike many others, we see a very low burnout rate.
