Sunday marks the first official event of the BEWC’s Regional Training Site status.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Boiler Elite Wrestling Club begins a new era this weekend, hosting its first USA Wrestling Regional Training Site (RTS) event on Sunday in the Blake Wrestling Center at Purdue University’s Lambert Fieldhouse. The practice is scheduled to run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and will be run by Boiler Elite RTS director Chris Fleeger.
“This weekend is a big step for the Boiler Elite Wrestling Club and for wrestling in the state of Indiana,” said Fleeger. “We’re excited to establish a new standard of wrestling and develop the best wrestlers in this part of the country. This is the first step in that process.”
To attend Sunday’s practice and other RTS events, a wrestler must meet one of three specified criteria set by USA Wrestling. An individual must have won at least one match at a USA World or Olympic team trials, have placed top-eight at USA Senior Open, University, Junior, Fila Junior or Cadet Nationals, or have placed in the top-four in their state’s high school championships.
