WELCOME TO SCANLAN WRESTLING

The only team that’s 100% dedicated to your success
Welcome

Our Philosophy

COMMIT | PRACTICE | ACHIEVE

Scanlan Wrestling Academy is NOT your pill fix. Success that’s worth anything does not come easy. We have the most efficient system in the country that when committed and executed properly, will produce results quickly. We will give you all of the tools you need to succeed. We use wrestling as a vehicle to teach achievement but each wrestler must have the DESIRE to fuel the vehicle. That desire is achieved through teaching our young wrestlers responsibility to develop ownership of their lives both on and off of the mat. Parents must be engaged in this endeavor to produce maximum results. Let’s win together!

All Skill
Levels

SWA implements a competitive environment for youth, middle, and high school wrestlers.

Character
Building

Your character is revealed through your pursuit to improve and as you strive NOT to make the same mistakes you made yesterday.
Adversity is the tool we use to build character and resilience. This requires supportive (NOT CODDLING) parenting and coaching. We constantly push the comfort zone of our wrestlers to sharpen their character.

Qualified

The Unit consists of the Wrestling Parents, The Wrestling Coaches, and The Wrestler. As The Unit becomes more aligned over time (or even immediately), the potential for success and the speed at which we can achieve it together DRASTICALLY increases. WE ARE A TEAM!

We offer full time training cycles, and one-on-one video analysis to ensure your training is personalized, tracked, and on-target for your goals.

People About Us

Wonderful program. If you are serious about improving as a wrestler, this is the place to go. I had two wrestlers that improved 100%, they didn’t even look like the same wrestlers. It teaches so much about discipline and dedication. Amazing program, and on the plus side my one wrestler lost almost 40 pounds with the help and encouragement of Dan and The Professor. It was tough, but both my wrestlers will be going back again.

Robin Beasley

Amazing program! My son has become a better wrestler 100%. Dan’s training goes beyond just wrestling and conditioning. He shows each kid how to take responsibility for their own actions. Honestly wish I would’ve enrolled my son in his program earlier.

Lynda Phuyo

For those who take wrestling seriously, making the choice to train with Dan is the only way to go. With discipline and hard work personifying his program, Dan’s focus on conditioning and effective technique enables his wrestlers to perform at their best on the competition mat.

Karen TerHaar

This is the best training around for beginners to very high level advanced wrestler’s. Coach Scanlan knows wrestling and what it takes to reach the highest levels in the sport. He can take wrestler’s of every level and make them better on the mat and off the mat as well.
This program is the best around for any wrestler who wants to improve and be the best they can be. If you want to be a State Champion and or wrestler in college, or just improve your skills to the highest level, this program is where you want to be. Thank you Coach Scanlan for making this program possible!

Jack Creamer

Over the five years that my sons, Zak and Cole, have trained with Dan Scanlan, they have completely transformed into confident, extremely fit young men.  Right from the beginning, everything clicked.  They loved the intensity Dan brought to training and worked hard to meet his goals.  In no time they had mastered proper technique and were getting better at an amazing rate.  It was a perfect match.
