A new era has begun for the Blugold wrestling program with the hiring of Tim Fader as its 10th head coach in August 2015. Coach Fader brings more than 20 years of collegiate coaching experience to our campus.
The wrestling coaching staff, including coach and two-time Olympian Jim Gruenwald, and athletes are excited to share their knowledge and passion for wrestling with the youth of the Chippewa Valley. Bring your positive attitude and work ethic to this camp and be inspired while learning the fundamentals and strategies involved in becoming a successful wrestler.
Overall, an excellent experience. My son is still talking about this camp and all the fun he had. We were very impressed. Thank you Coach Fader!!
