It is a sad day in the wrestling community as the JROB camps will be coming to an end. They have released an official statement on this matter today.
The Covid-19 pandemic has hit a lot of small businesses very hard and the J Robinson Intensive Camps have been one of the businesses that has been hit. Business Operations were forced to stop during the pandemic which caused many financial issues and made it impossible for a relaunch this year.
“The legendary camps trained over 60,000 wrestlers with a unique philosophy focusing on physical preparation, mental toughness, and life skills development.”
The camps were founded by 3x NCAA Champion, Olympian, and Airborne Army Ranger Jay Robinson. They have been running since 1978 and this will sadly be the end 43 years later.
The company has released this statement in regards to the closing “I am extremely proud of the lives changed by our camps – It is very disappointing to have to end a training camp that positively changes kids’ lives in a world that does not offer any rite of passage – Wrestlers are a different breed, the kids who took these camps on and earned the “I DID” shirt developed a work ethic that will last their entire lives.”
