I know they are good for freestyle and I'm sure they help wrestlers improve individually, but at what cost? Now, in order to feel competitive with the big dogs every program/area in the country is starting an RTC and the ones who aren't are put at a disadvantage. With one comes the need to aggressively fundraise in order to grow and hopefully keep the program afloat. Can every school afford to do that? I fear this will concentrate the elite talent to only those with an RTC and I'm not sure that's best for NCAA wrestling. Thoughts?

No.

 

yep add me to the list that agrees with this.

 

for the sake of conversation though, what's the solution?  independent training centers? i.e. foxcatcher?

For what it's worth, I've yet to see an accurate list of RTCs. I've asked, and gotten crickets in response. Yes, there's a list on this website, but it's not entirely accurate, unless you want to tell me that the Ohio RTC does not exist.

are there any notables other than Ohio RTC that are missing for the team usa list?  I found another, but it looks like this is missing a few as well.

From an international standpoint yes. From an NCAA level? No. Not all RTC's can or ever be equal.

Princeton's RTC will never be equal to tOSU's or PSU's.
