Upcoming CORE Events
CORE Camps, Clinics, and Tournaments
Our 2023 spring/summer goal is to expose NC/SC athletes to the benefits of Freestyle/Greco (FS/GR) wrestling. Most nationally competitive wrestling states have an advantage on us, as they have been doing FS/GR for decades. It's time for us to catch up! So, CORE will host 2 Freestyle clinics, 1 Freestyle camp, and 3 Freestyle tournaments this spring/summer.
