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 are located within the University of Nebraska’s wrestling room, and we work very closely with the Husker Wrestling program.
The NWTC is also a USA Wrestling-sanctioned Regional Training Center (RTC). USA Wrestling established RTCs 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), James Green (2x World Medalist), Tyler Berger (3x All-American), TJ Dudley (3x All-American), and Colton McCrystal (2x NCAA Qualifier, U23 World Team Member).
