Tooele Wrestling holds summer camp

The Tooele High School wrestling program hosted a summer camp last week with more than 100 young wrestlers participating.

All wrestlers were grouped according to age, weight and gender. The camp was a Purler Wrestling Academy Camp conducted by Tooele head coach Barrett Willson.

The Purler system is based on narrowing down the sports of wrestling’s 6,000+ techniques into the Best 275 techniques and skills. Then, taking those skills and dividing those into categories.

Similar to how gymnastics and karate mapped out and organized their complicated sports into levels or belts, Purler Wrestling, back in 1999, completely organized the sport of wrestling and the results were quite impressive.
