Dear all,

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. My younger brother is currently a junior in high school and is on the wrestling team. There is a slight problem though- his high school coach has never actually wrestled a match before. Our school is terribly underfunded and our wrestling coach is simply the football coach. I respect him for his effort, but even on good days his advice can be at best, limited.

I feel this is a complete waste because I know my brother has a potent mind for wrestling and he is also freakishly strong. But I am concerned his technique, or lack thereof, will bring him down at some point. He could also use some more conditioning. Needless to say, I feel this is a complete waste of potential.

I have considered sending him to a camp, notably J. Robinson's intensive one. He is slightly apprehensive about going but after hearing stories I am convinced that this camp would provide results. Given this situation, would J. Robinson's camp be a good idea? Does anyone have any other suggestions? He only has one year left.

Thank you.
