SPORTS IN BRIEF: Wrestling camp in Fairfield, area baseball scores
Wrestling camp set for late July
Williams Training Academy will be holding a wrestling camp in Fairfield starting July 28.
This camp will emphasize skills such as chain wrestling, various scoring holds, and the nonstop offense that many competitors fear. This style of wrestling has only been demonstrated by a select few. Learn how to better execute your best moves and defeat your opponent.
The three day camp will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 28-30 at the Fairfield Armory. The camp costs $100 for those who pre-register, and $120 for those who register at the door on the first day. Campers will need to bring their own sack lunch.
