The AWA Clinic Series is open to male and female wrestlers who are in the 7th grade and up. Elite Youth can request a petition to join. Technical focus is on high quality proven techniques and tactics that succeed at the High School, College, and International levels. There will be an emphasis on core basic skills, progressing into higher level and individual skills. It is suggested that athletes have a minimum one year of experience. Each week techniques will build upon the prior week.

Guest clinicians will make appearances and will be announced prior to AWA start date. The Guest Clinicians will include Penn Wrestling Staff as well as PRTC Senior Athletes & Coaches. (It is encouraged that wrestlers sign up with a teammate or partner similar size, especially on the smaller or bigger weight ranges, as numbers can fluctuate in those ranges).

Advance Wrestling Academy aims to prepare participants to gain RTC criteria which would provide the opportunity to participate in PRTC Developmental Practices. We are committed to advancing every participant to their next level!
