Beginner wrestlers will have the opportunity to learn proper stance, as well as the neutral, top and bottom starting positions.
“It gives them a start,” Lindsay said. “When we go into the start, we start in November or late October, so we only have two weeks before our first match.”
Lindsay also admits summer camps like the one at BHS help expand young wrestlers’ repertoire of moves, even if they compete for another school.
“They learn techniques, especially from another coach that they might not have learned through their own coach,” he said. “Not that their coach doesn’t know any moves, but it just increases their repertoire.”
In its first year, the Braves are not looking to charge the campers an entry fee; though, donations will be accepted.
“Basically, any money that we do raise will go toward the Baldwin high school wrestling team,” Lindsay said. “The only thing that I’d like people to do if they’re interested is please call me.”
