Helping Wrestlers Get To College – Helping Coaches Fill Rosters – We Help #GrowWrestling by Connecting Prospects with Programs

Regional Training

RTC’s provide wrestlers with high-end training year round.  These training sites are intended for wrestlers who are looking to achieve the highest goals in wrestling.  Not always, but most often, High School wrestlers attending RTC locations for practices and training are looking to wrestle at the Division I level, as well as the international level.  In any case, Regional Training Center’s are a place to find great workout partners, elite coaching, and instruction.  RTC’s are usually located on a college campus or collegiate facility which almost always provides a superior environment when compared to your traditional clubs and high school programs.  It also serves as a great way to meet current college and international wrestlers, and resident athletes who are higher up on the developmental ladder.

Guidelines for Prospective Student-Athletes

High School wrestlers/Prospective Student-Athletes (PSA’s) must be compliant with the following criteria:

-PSA must live within 250 miles of an RTC to participate in practice. If there is no RTC within the boundaries listed above, the PSA may join the closest RTC to his residence by applying for an exemption through USA Wrestling.

-PSA may belong to more than one RTC. 

-Only the PSA or USA Wrestling can pay for a prospect to attend RTC practice.

-PSA may not practice at a regional training site during that PSA’s traditional high school wrestling season. Dates are determined by the PSA’s State Activities Association. 

-PSA that is graduated from high school and is taking a year off before matriculating to college, may practice during the traditional folkstyle season with an RTC.  

-Once a PSA has signed a National Letter of Intent, the 250 miles radius rule is no longer applicable and that PSA may attend the RTC of their choice.  

  • Due to the high level of instruction, training, and workouts surrounding Regional Training Sites, a wrestler must meet certain criteria on top of being a current member athlete of USA Wrestling.  According to USA Wrestling, any wrestler who participates in RTC practices must meet any of the following criteria:
  • -Won at least one match at a USAW World or Olympic Team Trials
  • -Placed top 8 at USAW Senior Open Championships
  • -Placed top 8 at USAW University National Championship
