$900.00 raised of $5,000.00 goal

Runs from: 

Monday, April 25, 2022 to Tuesday, May 10, 2022

Early February Marty Calder, the Brock University Wrestling Coach invited wrestlers from our program to join them to travel to Freiburg, Germany for an International Training Camp. We have just finalized the tour for May 2nd to 10th, 2022.

There are eight wrestlers and two coaches that will be a part of this tour, costing an estimated $2,500 to 3,000 CAD Dollars per person. We are looking at a variety of sources including this crowdfunding page, Lakehead’s International Office, Lakehead University Wrestling and their Club, to offset some of the cost taken on by each participant.

This training tour will provide Lakehead wrestlers, and coaches with the opportunity to travel and train with wrestlers from Germany. In addition to training, the team members are able to tour the country, take part in cultural activities and much more.

For some, this may be the greatest adventure of their lifetime, and an experience that will be remembered and talked about forever. The learning that takes place during an international training experience is unmeasurable. Hearing a new language, being immersed in another culture, shopping with foreign money in stores where English is not the primary language, seeing and visiting attractions, museums and cultural events cannot be duplicated in any other way.
