First-year Alcovy to host wrestling camp

Alcovy High School will be hosting its first wrestling camp this summer.

Directed by Alcovy head coach Mike Mostek, the camp will be held Monday through Friday, beginning at 9 a.m. to noon each day. During the final day of the camp, the wrestlers will be divided into two teams to compete in a dual meet.

The price of the camp is $50 per wrestler. If you have more than one child participating, the maximum cost is $75. Each wrestler will receive a camp T-shirt, as well.

Each participant will only wrestle students who are in the same weight class. The competitors will learn the basic techniques used in wrestling, among other skills.

The most important part of the camp is to allow the young wrestlers have fun while developing their motor skills through activities, games and individual competition.

For more information, please contact Coach Mostek at (770) 385-7119 or (770) 712-0283.
