C3 Compound College Combine

Our goal with C3 is to create not just an event, but an experience for the coaches, athletes and parents attending.

Mission: Create an equal opportunity environment for athletes to showcase their work ethic, wrestling skills and character. This unique training combine will allow coaches to teach, communicate and evaluate athletes to determine which attendees are a potential proper fit for their athletic program and institution.

Camp description: The concept of C3 is to attract the top wrestling talent in the nation to specific regions of the U.S. to showcase their skills, work ethic and character in front of multiple divisions of college coaches that consistently show interest in those regions of the US. Our format is structured to create a common ground for coaches to evaluate athletes on several athletic and intellectual planes. This camp open to any and all ages and skill levels. The training and evaluation environment is structured with the attending athletes in mind. Athletes will learn and converse with coaches not just about wrestling but also their programs culture, academics and common standards. A list of college coaches attending will be released prior to the event. Below is some that have already committed to attend the event. WE ARE ADDING FEMALE WRESTLING TO THE FLORIDA C3 EVENT!!!
