NCAA Greco Workshop Back for ’19

United States Greco-Roman age-group athletes and coaches who plan on attending the 2019 NCAA Division I National Championships in Pittsburgh next week will be able to get some upper-body reps in if they should so choose.

For the second year in a row, US Greco-Roman Operations Manager Gary Mayabb is holding the NCAA Greco Workshop, a two-day clinic aimed at speeding the re-acclimation process athletes are looking for leading up to their respective World Team Trials events and Fargo Nationals.

“We’re looking at multiple pathways trying to bring more athletes into Greco and the NCAA Championships tend to be a magnet across our country,” Mayabb explained last year. “It’s a great time because wrestlers are coming out of folkstyle and moving into the international styles as the spring and summer come into view.”

A degree of experience is expected — the NCAA Greco Workshop environment is targeted more towards wrestlers who have competed in the classical style and are familiar with the various rules and positions.

Interested parties are required to fill out this application and send it in by March 17th (this Sunday).
