All of this on top of the normal outstanding features of this long standing camp such as 6 mat sessions, intense training, competitive matches, dorm facilities, catered meals, an afternoon at Sproat Lake, fun games, movie nights, camp shirts and great memories.
We have always tried to keep our camp affordable for everyone. In keeping with this goal we offer an amazing early bird price that can save wrestlers $50. The window for that price is closing as it is only available until June 1st.

Our summer wrestling coordinators and assistants Daley Forbes, Morgan Dagenais, Aaron Badovinac, Isaac McDonald, Ravi Manhas, Jayce Clayton and Jayden Iverson will be calling and emailing coaches and wrestlers over the next week
If you have questions don’t hesitate to contact James or I. We will consider further group discounts if teams wish to send groups of 10 or more to the camp.

Canada Summer Games Trials Qualification Procedure:
The 2017 Canada Summer Games Trials for Team BC Wrestling will be qualified in four stages:
Stage 1: 2016 War on the Floor – top two placing athletes
Stage 2: 2017 BC Age Class – top three placing athletes
Stage 3: 2017 BC Provincial Championships – top three placing athletes
Stage 4: 2017 Cadet Juvenile Canadian Nationals – top three placing athletes
Selection of Team BC Athletes:
Athletes will compete in a bracket tournament (i.e. seeded tournament), to determine the finalists. Seeding is based on this year’s qualifying tournament results, as well as head to head match-ups throughout the year. This tournament is open to any individual that fulfills the athlete eligibility criteria noted above. This will be a single elimination tournament. Finalists of this tournament will compete in a best of three series (win two of three matches) to determine who will represent Team BC for that weight class.
To determine the true alternate, a wrestle off will take place between the second and third placers. This will only take place if the second and third placer did not meet in the tournament.
**Important Notice: Winner of the trials does not guarantee a spot on the team. The athlete must earn that right through a commitment of training as well as to the competitive program leading up to each event. He must also demonstrate the ability to compete at the national level (as determined by the team coaches and selection committee). Training camps and scheduled competitions are a necessary part of the preparatory program and are therefore mandatory. Non-compliance with the specified program will result in the inability to compete.
Injury Provision for Western Summer Games Trials:
Under the circumstances that an injured athlete is unable to compete in the 2017 Canada Summer Games Trials, the athlete will be allowed to submit a petition for a wrestle-off to be reviewed by the Team BC coaching staff with the following conditions:
If there are any questions or concerns regarding any of the information outlined above please contact me.
