Wrestling camp dates set
Comprehensive youth offerings that build interest and help mold fledgling athletes for later years are the foundation of every good prep sports program.
Payson High wrestling coach Casey Woodall realizes the importance of building from the ground up, which is one of the reasons he will host the upcoming Junior Longhorn Wrestling Camp. It will be held from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Feb. 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28 in the Wilson Dome wrestling room.
The camp is open to boys in grades three through eight and will be coached by Woodall and his staff, with help from some of the varsity wrestlers.
The fee is $30 and includes a Longhorn wrestling T-shirt. All fees benefit the high school wrestling program.
Registration is open until Feb. 18 through the parks department.
