The following press release was issued yesterday:

Wrestling Legends Offer Rare 4-Day Training Opportunity, $2,500 Reid Fliehr Memorial Scholarship To Best-Of-Camp!

Returning to next summer’s Fanfest Weekend lineup is Dr. Tom Prichard’s Future Wrestling Legends Training Camp, a four-day talent search for three dozen of the world’s top young male and female wrestling hopefuls.

Prichard, a 30-year mat veteran and, since 1996, one of the most respected trainers in wrestling, will be joined by a bevy of legendary guest coaches including Gerald Brisco, Nigel McGuinness, Rip Rogers, Lance Storm and Les Thatcher.

This is a very rare multi-day opportunity, providing almost 30 hours of in-ring training and locker room study. The benefit for the young wrestlers is almost ‘once-in-a-lifetime.’ It’s a very rare opportunity to train with and have unprecedented access to so many wrestling legends at once and over multiple days.

The young man or woman voted best-of-camp will be awarded the Reid Fliehr Memorial Scholarship, $2,500 towards future training opportunities, in honor of the 25-year-old Fliehr who passed away unexpectedly in March 2013.

Though the training camp is intended for experienced young wrestlers and referees, beginners and those with thoughts of possibly becoming a wrestler will have a chance to observe, as well.

Are you a future wrestling legend? If that’s your goal, don’t miss this opportunity of a lifetime!
