Hall of Fame Coach Marc Sprague
I have had the opportunity to coach 6 Olympians, 1 Olympic silver medalist, 1 Russian Games world champion, 2 US world champions, 14 age group world champions, 7 Junior National ASICS outstanding wrestlers and hundreds of Collegiate, Freestyle and Greco state and national champions. So with nearly 40 years of in-the-room coaching experience, I have much to share, stories to tell, and I will share with you what I have found to be the keys to Victory, the Seeds of Greatness, and Secrets to Lifes Success.
I invite you to come join us during our Cobra Night workouts - with no monthly commitment. In addition, we offer week-long camps, week-end clinics, holiday clinics, fundraising camps, intense training, and motivational sessions throughout the year for boys and girls, ages 6 through college age.
I look forward to sharing a vision for VICTORY with you soon.
Cobra Wrestling Systems
11/23/14 As I recall, last year Josh Neiwert, from Spokane only won 2 matches and did not place at the Big Foot Tournament. However, after a year of hard work and attending over 40 Cobra Camps he went undefeated, did not give up a point and was the outstanding wrestler in his age group at the 2014 Big Foot Tournament.

After 30 years of coaching, both as a head coach and as an assistant coach at the high school level, I have never seen a coach more passionate and with technically sound as Coach Marc Sprague. I started taking my son to him when he was 8 years old. We would drive over 3 hours twice a week to get the best coaching in the state of Oregon. I have seen my son grow into a national champion and he is currently ranked in the nation’s top 10 in his weight class. I am so grateful for everything that Coach Sprague has done for my son.

"I have attended several wrestling camps through Coach Sprague. I am impressed that in a 1-4 day camp, our kids learn more than an entire season of wrestling. The knowledge of Coach Sprague is evident and watching his team wrestle, it is obvious that his teaching methods are superior. It is also apparent that Coach Sprague cares for kids and knows how to motivate them. Coach Sprague and his camps are educational and inspirational!"
Dr. Shane Needham
Moscow Wrestling Club Coach
"I give my highest recommendation to Coach Marc Sprague and his wrestling clinics. I’ve been to many of the nation’s top camps & clinicians and Coach Sprague rises above them all. For the past ten years his instruction has been an integral part of our team’s success. I particularly value his Pinning Camps for the seamless concepts he weaves through a variety of moves that makes being a pinner easy for a wrestler of any age or experience level. Our advanced wrestlers attend his Oregon training camps and EVERY wrestler we’ve sent has been a national competitor in Fargo. For enthusiasm, expertise and high-energy training experience, Coach Sprague and his Cobra Wrestling Systems are the only way to go!"
Inglemoor High School (Kenmore, Washington)
"Cobra camps focus on a specific series of moves then variations in setups and counter attacks to opponents’ reactions, yet are fast paced and interesting enough to keep the kids engaged. These camps don’t go through dozens of moves that the wrestlers don’t really have time to develop and then often forget. Several commented that they learned more useful technique in one week than from all the camps they had previously attended. We had novice to state finalist in attendance and everyone got better every hour of camp. Coach Sprague’s motivational and lifelong application sessions were a big hit with the athletes. The camp’s real payoff is in seeing the wrestlers actually using the techniques in match competition; that’s when you know they truly learned something."
