The University of Minnesota will welcome the Navy SEAL Leap Frogs, an elite parachute jumping core, to Bierman Field to wrap up the 2008 J Robinson Intensive Wrestling Camp on Tuesday, July 22 at 11:00 a.m.
The camp, hosted annually by the University of Minnesota wrestling coaching staff as a part of J Robinson wrestling camps, comes to an end Tuesday, July 22 after 28 days. Since 1978, J Robinson and his staff have hosted their unique wrestling training experience for thousands of wrestlers from across the country.
J Robinson wrestling camps’ welcoming of the Leap Frogs begins tonight as about 200 of the more than 500 campers will participate in the Trident Challenge. The Navy SEALs promote the challenge to promote fitness and to introduce young people to the value of physical wellness. The Trident Challenge includes a combination of timed swimming, push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups and running.
Each year, Minnesota wrestling concludes their intensive camp with a poignant event meant to promote Robinson and his staff’s vision of community service and physical wellness.
