How True Champions Are Made

The BullTrained Black Shirt Program is an 9-month, elite-level program designed to allow home schooled student-athletes, in grades fourth through twelfth, the opportunity to train and compete full-time while continuing their academic studies.

Our goal is to prepare athletes with high ambitions for the rigorous demands of high school, collegiate and world level competition. Assisting them in their work towards earning a college scholarship or a world title. While there are no guarantees, we strongly believe this program gives wrestlers the best opportunity to excel as athletes and grow as individuals.

We have partnered with an NCAA-accredited online educational institution to ensure athletes’ academic success while balancing an intensive training schedule and a full competition schedule.

Led by “The Bull”

Led by former college head wrestling coach and BullTrained CEO, Sammie Henson, student-athletes in the Black Shirt Program will grow physically, mentally, and socially as both a competitor and a person.

Too many times students fall behind or are not achieving athletic success on the level they feel is needed. Throughout this program, student-athletes are assured of an increase in their athletic pursuit of excellence while also focusing on their academic studies.

The Black Shirt Program is designed to provide a full educational year of academic studies and sport-specific training with a full competition schedule. Skill levels also improve at a faster and higher rate within a small group setting with like-minded individuals.
