The Champion Wrestling Camps and Clinics have been developing the best wrestlers and programs in the Southeast for over 20 years.

Jeff Ragan who founded and runs this camp and clinic system (formally know as the Bulldog Wrestling Camps) spent 14 years coaching at The Citadel where he helped recruit, develop, and coach multiple Division I All-Americans. Also, as head coach of The Charleston Wrestling Club, Jeff Ragan, coached/developed many Freestyle/Greco All-Americans, National champions of all ages, and an Olympian in 2012.

Last year the Champion Wrestling Camps and Jeff Ragan did over two dozen camps/clinics for programs in SC,NC,GA,FL,AL,LA, MO and OH. The Champion wrestling camps will continue to travel to schools and programs around the country and the SE this year. Please select the contact option above for more information regarding possible camps in your area.


Last summer the Champion Wrestling Camps moved its overnight team camp after over a decade from Charleston at The Citadel to the Atlanta area at Riverside Military Academy and its technique camp to Woodward Academy. For info on the technique camp, May 31-June 3, at Woodward Academy, which is limited to the first 100 wrestlers, please contact Jeff Ragan.

The team camp, limited to 2 dozen teams teams, July 10-13, at Riverside Military Academy is designed for high school and middle school wrestlers who want to gain match experience in a live setting. Teams will receive instruction and will wrestle in live wrestling competitions against other teams. Wrestlers will receive technical instruction and technique tailored to the areas which need improvement, a team champion will be crowned, and an individual tournament will be held at the end with medals for top placers. Individuals who wish to attend are welcome and will be placed on a team. In past years the team camp has had teams from all over the Southeast (FL, GA, LA, NC, SC, VA & TN) and from as far away as Missouri and have included multiple state championship teams. We expect this year's team camp to have teams from all over the country and to be more competitive than ever, so sign your team up now while spots are still available.

Team discounts are available!
