Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What can I do to help get placed at camp?
A. The best way of assuring greatest possibility of placement is to mark “Yes” on every week that you could possibly attend. Mark “No” on all other weeks that you are unavailable. Send in application early, then we will mail back and confirm which week works best.
Q. Do I need a specific amount of experience or accomplishments to be accepted for camp?
A. No. Whether your wrestler is a first-year wrestler, or a multiple time State Champ, your wrestler will be placed in a camp that is built around his needs. For each camp the training partners are hand-picked by Coach Ramos and Coach J. This ensures that every wrestler is placed in a camp that will challenge and build his confidence, not crush his spirit, or let him get bored.
Q. When are selections made for each camp?
A. Selections will be made, and confirmations will be mailed approximately as follows:
Team Camp: Confirmations will be mailed by April 10th
Individual Weeklong: Confirmations will be mailed by May 2nd
Schoolboy Weekend: Confirmations will be mailed by May 12th
Fall Weekend: Confirmations will be mailed by Oct. 3rd
Spring Weekend: Confirmations will be mailed by March 1st
Q. Can Dads stay for the weekend camps? (6th grade and under)

** No Father is allowed to stay at the wrestling facility for weeklong camps.
Q. How much extra spending money do the children need if I am dropping them of for the week?
A. We suggest about $50. The kids can order pizza after the last session every night and other snack options. Also, if someone else is picking your wrestler up – they may want to bring money to buy a T-shirt or shorts etc.
Q. Are wrestlers allowed to attend more than one week of camp?
A. Yes, many wrestlers find benefit in attending multiple weeks of camp.
Q. Can the Wrestlers buy clothing, etc.?
A. We offer T-Shirts, shorts, knee pads, videos, etc., at checkout time only. This way it is not necessary for wrestlers to have extra money except for pizza and pop. Parents can bring extra money at checkout to purchase gear.
Q. Can wrestlers be placed in the same camp together?
A. Yes – if both wrestlers are close to the weight range of the camp chosen. Please send applications in together and mark on application “Please place with (Wrestler’s Name)… if possible.”
Q. If I don’t get placed at camp, is there anything I can do next time to help get placed?
A. The Young All Stars Wrestling Camp turns away hundreds of wrestlers per year. Possible Reasons Why:
1. Your application was turned in after the deadline.
2. You did not supply us enough weeks to choose from.
3. We did not have the correct age and weights for the weeks you chose.
Q. When is it ok for me to schedule a flight for my wrestler to attend camp?
A. Please wait until you receive a confirmation in the mail with the dates you are scheduled to attend prior to scheduling your flight. Once you schedule your flight information, we ask that you email us the flight itinerary. We will email you back with confirmation of your flight itinerary.
