Some History On High Altitude WC and The 17th Annual High Altitude Winter Break Wrestling Camps

Below is the information for the 17th  Annual High Altitude Wrestling “Winter Break” Training Camps! For those of you who are unfamiliar with High Altitude Wrestling Club, it is run by Coach Chad Tunink. Chad was a placer for Perry in HS and was a D3 AA for Buena Vista. He has a proven successful track record spanning back decades. In the 2005-2010-ish range, they won a plethora of state championships as a club and they even won Tulsa Nationals one year. Here are some incredibly impressive stats about High Altitude and the wrestlers they have produced:


  • 1245 State Qualifiers
  • 889 State Medalists
  • 320 State Finalists
  • 179 State Champions
  • 285 All-Americans
  • 66 National Champions


  • 333 State Qualifiers
  • 211 State Medalists
  • 69 State Finalists
  • 34 State Champions
  • 1 – 4 x State Champion (Jake Marlin)
  • 70 All Americans

The results speak for themselves. These camps and the High Altitude Club are worth checking out if you have a kid who wrestles and wants to get to the next level in their development.

“High Altitude Wrestling Club has helped to not only make me the wrestler I am today, but also the man I am today!  The technique works at all levels, and it will help you excel in the sport.  The coaching is great, and the workout partners are tough.  I couldn’t ask for a better club!”
