Wrestling Camp

Dates: June 13-15, 2018

The Alma College wrestling camp focuses on the development of the complete wrestler. In addition to covering technical aspects in the neutral, top and bottom positions, our camps include a focus on practice and competitive mentality, strength training and leadership. Clinicians present higher-level techniques and discuss the importance of proper training and mindset to maximize each athlete’s potential.

This camp is primarily focused on middle school and high school wrestlers (ages 10-18). Accepting youth wrestlers in groups, if we have enough interest, to provide a quality experience.

Clinician Experience

Jeremiah TobiasJeremiah Tobias
Head Coach

Jeremiah Tobias was named head wrestling coach for the 2016-17 season after being an assistant since the reinstatement of the program in 2011. As the state of Michigan’s seventh ever MHSAA four-time state champion, and as the University of Michigan’s all-time pins leader (both career and season) he brings immediate attention to the commitment that the Scots have made to building a nationally respected program. Tobias is a graduate of Manchester High School (2000), where he won four state championships and never lost a match after his freshman year. He earned the Dave Schultz Excellence Award for the state of Michigan in 2000, a national award taking into account excellence in wrestling, scholastic achievement, character, citizenship and community service. Tobias continued his success at the University of Michigan where he was a three-year letterwinner and set both the single-season (17) and career (57) pin records. Since college, Tobias has collected experience as a coach in several settings. He served as an NCAA Division I assistant coach at the University of Wyoming and as a full-time NCAA Division II coach at Belmont Abbey College. He also has extensive experience as a private coach and clinic instructor across the eastern United States, including two years as club coach for the Port City Wrestling Club in Wilmington, North Carolina. Today, his “Tobias Style” clinics are the chatter of wrestling communities throughout Michigan and beyond. With a top position tenacity that is unparalleled, Tobias teaches with a style that captivates audiences from the youth level through the best of coaching staffs.
