FAQ’s

What age groups / experience levels can join Team Apache?

We have 2 groups: Elementary – grades K- 7 and Middle School / High School – grades 8-12. All levels participate on Team Apache – from beginners to State Champions.

How many different sessions do you offer?

Currently 3:

  • Spring/ postseason (early March – Early June)
  • Fall/ Preseason (early September – Early November)
  • Summer (mid June – mid August)
  • Summer – Xtreme Intensive Camp and Day Camp (3 days TBD)**

How many locations do you have?

Our training facility is located in Trevose, PA – see the directions link above. We no longer have a training session at Rider University, however we do get lots of kids from NJ as our facility is only 15 minutes from the NJ/ PA border – right off the PA turnpike at the Neshaminy exit.

What is a typical practice session like?

Practices begin with a 15 minute warm up, followed by a drill package that includes teaching new techniques and refining skills. The amount of teaching dictates the intensity of the drill session. Some practices are hard drilling, while others have drilling to learn new techniques. This also varies with each age group. Drill sessions last any where from 30 – 45 minutes. After drilling, live wrestling takes place for approx. 30-45 minutes, then followed by a few minutes of conditioning. AGAIN, this is a general practice as all practices vary. Some days may consist of all wrestling or all technique – this usually occurs when we have special guest clinicians. Elementary practices are only 1 hour long to take full advantage of children’s attention span. They follow a similar practice model, yet the time are condensed.

What is Freestyle/ Greco Roman wrestling?

Freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling are the styles used in international competitions such as the World Games and Olympics. Rules and scoring is different. During our spring session we will introduce these styles of wrestling to our athletes. See www.themat.com for more details. We run a freestyle session in the Spring only under legendary Coach Ruslon.

Does the club also teach/ cover freestyle techniques and rules?

YES, APACHE Wrestling club covers freestyle and Greco techniques during the spring session only. This usually occurs during the months of April/ May. We encourage ALL wrestlers regardless of age and experience to take part in this!

Will there be APACHE coaches at open tournaments?

All tournaments are optional; therefore coaches will be at some tournaments, but NOT all tournaments. If there are coaches available, we will help you out. SEE BELOW!

Will the APACHE coaching staff coach the kids if they enter tournaments?

As noted in our mission statement – this club is simply to supplement what you are already doing. The coaching staff WILL NOT coach you at a tournament if your regular team coach is there. However, if your regular coach is not there, we will be more than happy to coach you. We also will not coach APACHE club kids who are wrestling other APACHE club kids, so please don’t ask.

Do you offer “PRIVATE LESSONS?”

Yes, ask Coach Silimperi about details.
