Smith Robinson Gymnasium will be wrestling central on June 20 through 22 when the Healdsburg Wrestling Club and the MIT wrestling team combine to host the third annual Drew Esquivel Memorial Wrestling Camp.
The camp is named for 2013 HHS graduate and wrestling standout Drew Esquivel, who went on to compete for MIT before being tragically killed in an accident.
The three-day event is expected to draw some 75 high school and junior high school aged kids looking to hone their skills, with instruction given by seven coaches and wrestlers from MIT, along with the Healdsburg High School coaching staff.
Four of the MIT coaches are former teammates of Esquivel, including Matt Chun, a Rhodes Scholar, Sam Shanes, a former undefeated collegiate national champion. In addition, the coaching staff will also include Andrew Rogers, a 2006 HHS graduate and state champion.
The MIT coaches have covered their own travel expenses and will be staying with host wrestling families.
The cost of the camp is $125 per wrestler, with family discounts and payment plans available. Camp shirts are included and lunches can be purchased for $6.50 per day. In addition, teams that send five or more athletes will receive a donation to their program.
The camp runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day.
All athletes are required to register online.
