Choose Top Leg Camp


The Choose Top Leg Camp is conducted in a clinic format. Each wrestling camp is designed to insure that one-on-one attention is given to each wrestler. A focus on one series (leg riding) split into separate short sessions increases retention tremendously. Coaches are welcome to come along and feel free to bring a camera so you can review the technique again in the winter.

At the Choose Top Leg Camp throwing legs is taught as a series of moves and positions. Most wrestlers learn leg moves at different times and pick up a few things on their own. This camp will show wrestlers how many of these moves work together and how to use one move to setup another.

The technique is presented with a position-based philosophy rather then a scoring-based philosophy. You will learn to throw legs with the mentality to constantly improve good position rather then becoming impatient and giving up position. Learning to constantly improve position rather then just stay in good position will enable you to score without putting yourself in danger.

Plenty of wrestlers think they know the basics of leg wrestling. This wrestling camp addresses the small details that often get overlooked. The Choose Top Leg Camp will fine tune your leg techniques so that you can throw legs and score points against the toughest opponents.

The focus of the Choose Top Leg Camp is on staying in good position and high percentage scoring moves. Scrambling and recovery from difficult positions and situations are also spread out throughout the clinic in order to help leg riders remain confident rather than bailing out to early.

This wrestling camp is run by an experienced coach who is currently in the room. Coach Keel understands how to show technique in a way that is fun and easily understood by wrestlers of all ages. He also puts a lot of time into research and is constantly picking up new technique from competition as well as camp participants.

Keel Camps are run with the you’re-on-your-own format, so make sure you bring everything you’ll need to include water, food if there are breaks, and any gear you might need.  Trainers are normally not available during the clinics.  Parents are welcome to OBSERVE but should refrain from participating, coaching, or interacting with their wrestler during the clinic without prior permission.  Keel Camps are not resident camps.

    I’m going to be out of town during the leg camp. Is there any way you will record the camp, and I can pay the regular registration fee? Don’t want to miss out. Let me know thanks.

We have attended Coach Keel's camps for at least 4 years in a row. Its that good and we learn new things each time. Matt is great with kids, is an excellent communicator, and has a great sense of humor.

My son attended one of your camps...perhaps the most significant wrestling camp he has attended. He developed not only great leg riding ability, but great balance as well; he is like a "tick" on top, kids simply can't reverse him or get him out of legs. He now dominates kids that used to beat him. He is simply a much better wrestler.

The kids really liked the camp and certainly learned a different style than what were use to wrestling
