Register for WDMCS Girls’ Wrestling Camp for Grades 2-12 (07/14/2022)
July 14, 2022 | West Des Moines Community Schools is excited to announce its first-ever Valley Girls’ Wrestling Camp. Students in grades 2-12 can sign up for the camp, which will take place July 18-20.
Participants do not need prior experience to take part in the 3-day experience which will provide an introduction to the sport and an opportunity for our younger students to learn and bond with experienced high school athletes. All proceeds from the camp will help support the new middle and high school programs.
The Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union (IGHSAU) sanctioned girls’ wrestling in January 2022, meaning girls’ wrestling will be a varsity sport with an official state championship starting with the 2022-23 season. Corey Rasmussen, a former Valley wrestler, has worked with the wrestlers for the past five seasons, and will lead the team as head coach. Rasmussen and former Valley girls’ wrestlers, including Jazmyn Knutson, will run the camp. Knutson is Valley’s first and only girls’ wrestling athlete to place in the Iowa Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association Girls’ State Championships.
