MORE ABOUT NEBRASKA WRESTLING TRAINING CENTER
The Nebraska Wrestling Training Center (NWTC) is a non-profit (501-C3) organization established to grow wrestling at all levels.
We offer youth and high school camps and clinics throughout the year to wrestlers at all skill and experience levels. Through our camp season we aim to build a foundation for a future in wrestling by: (1) igniting a love for the sport, (2) teaching winning skills and positions, and (3) instilling the values of hard work, commitment, and resiliency.
The NWTC is also a USA Wrestling-sanctioned Regional Training Center (RTC). USA Wrestling established the RTC model as an effort to build international styles of wrestling at all levels. As a Regional Training Center, the NWTC allows senior-level athletes to train, alongside our University of Nebraska student-athletes, full time in Lincoln as they pursue their dreams of representing the USA on both World and Olympic teams. Our current RTC roster includes: Jordan Burroughs (5x World and Olympic Champion, 3x World Bronze Medalist), Tyler Berger (3x All-American), TJ Dudley (3x All-American), and Collin Purinton (All-American).
