Wrestling Staff Offers High School/Club Coaches Clinic October 27
The Princeton wrestling coaching staff, which amassed two NCAA titles and six All-America honors over their respective collegiate careers, is offering a clinic on October 27 for all high school and club coaches.
Led by head coach Chris Ayres, who is in his seventh season of rebuilding the Tiger wrestling program, the Princeton staff will spend the afternoon going over several aspects of coaching, including technical foundation, drilling and warm up. Registration begins at 12:30, and the clinic will go through a live wrestling session that lasts until 3 pm.
There will be a meet & greet with the Tiger coaching staff following the clinic.
The registration fee is $30, and it includes a Princeton wrestling t-shirt, as well as food and drinks at the meet & greet. It will take place in the Princeton Wrestling Room, located on E-level inside Jadwin Gym.
