The  2018 Skagway Youth Wrestling Camp “survivors.” The Skagway Youth Wrestling Club hosted the Haines Wrestling Club and collaborated with Haines coaches for a successful five-day clinic. Camp Coach Andrew Cardella of Haines led the camp of 12 Skagway wrestlers and 16 Haines Youth Wrestlers, ranging from 5-13 years old with assistance from Haines Middle School Coach Jordan Baumgartner and Skagway Coach Duppy Ticaro.Ticarro said the camp was “Lots of fun,” and focused on fundamentals for new and young wrestlers, with afternoon sessions zeroing in on more advanced techniques.

“I am so very proud of all these kids for their grit and willingness to work so hard in the heat of our school gym, all while forging new relationships with kids from Haines/Skagway,” Ticarro said. PHOTO COURTESY OF SKAGWAY YOUTH WRESTLING
