Hill of champions
Welcome to Scanlan Wrestling Academy’s Hill of Champions! This program is meant to cultivate mental toughness, bottom line. It is physically demanding and builds strong bodies, but more importantly, builds a strong mind.
As a parent, you MUST hold our wrestlers accountable for their attendance. Everything about this program is meant to be uncomfortable. It’s early in the morning, we train rain or shine (unless thunderstorming), and we hold the entire group to a high standard. They need to know that WE (coaches and parents) are on the same page with requirements to train regardless of how they “feel.”

This program originated with The Professor over 20 years ago, and has evolved to include various other training methods from our other coaches, Coach Matt, Coach Ray, “Papa Bear” Coach Ron, and alumni guest coaches every so often.
This program will expose weakness, pinpoint breaking points, bring our wrestlers to hell and back, and cultivate the toughness needed to have a winner’s attitude. See you on the hill!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
