The Kevin Dresser Team-Competition Camp is designed around individual competition while using a TEAM CONCEPT that allows campers to participate with their team. If you attend camp as an individual or in a small group you will be placed on a team. This camp will consist of both competition (dual meets/individual tournament) and technique sessions. All technique will be taught by the Virginia Tech coaching staff or the upper classmen on the Hokie wrestling team. Each camper will be guaranteed between 12 and 18 matches. We have one of the top team camps on the East coast. In 2015 more than 500 campers and 38 teams attended this camp.  

If you are a high school coach looking for a camp with great competition where all you have to do is coach and evaluate your kids, then this camp will be perfect for you. We will provide each mat with a certified HS official and a digital score clock.  All we ask is that each team provide one table worker to help keep time and score.  We will also assign a member of the Virginia Tech wrestling team to assist you with coaching duties. All you have to do is show up, coach and have fun!!!!!

Last year ALL head coaches received a free oversized embroidered VT Nike backpack as part of their registration fee. We will also hold a nightly coaches socials, giving you the opportunity to spend time and get too know our staff. We provide a sublimated camp ALL-STAR singlets to those wrestlers selected to the camp All-Star match. Teams that advance to the championship match of their pool will wear actual Hokie team singlets in the finals! You and your team will also be invited to stick around and watch the Virginia Tech wrestlers live wrestle and see why we have emerged as one of the nation's premier wrestling programs!

All registrations will be done online.  Having your team register online eliminates all paper forms and allows coaches to veiw what team members have regsitered.  To set up the online registartion portal for your tem notify Coach Robie (coachrobie@kdressercamps.com).

If COACHES DO NOT want to stay in the dorms with their wrestlers or if you would prefer for your entire team to stay at a hotel, we have set up a group block at the Microtel in Christiansburg and the Holiday Inn Express (formerly the Comfort Inn and Suites) less than a mile from campus and the Microtel in Christiansburg (about 6 miles).  We will have plenty of supervision in dorms.  This year we will offer an air conditioned dorm option for an additional $30.  There are only 150 spots available in the air condiotioned dorm.  If you choose to stay off campus campers will be charged the commuter rate of $290 (they will receive lunch and dinners only) there will be NO coaches fee’s associated with your team.  Coaches staying off campus will NOT receive a meal card but can pay cash or credit at the dining hall.  FYI-Virginia Tech has the #1 ranked dining halls of any college in the nation, the food is great!  If interested ask for the VT Wrestling block.
