High Performance Training Centres

United World Wrestling operates several High-Performance training centres around the world. These centres provide training for athletes year-round and have the task of developing international wrestling talent to its full potential. In our main centres, we welcome athletes supported by Olympic Solidarity and other key Strategic Partners. 

A number of centres are affiliated with United World Wrestling for training:

The National Institute of Sport, Expertise and Performance, more commonly known as INSEP, is a large French establishment. Created in 1975 under the name of National Institute of Sport and Physical Education, it is the heir to older institutions.
As one of the world’s foremost Olympic training centres, INSEP not only has the state-of-the-art training facility, but also provides technical and scientific expertise with a genuine respect for the athletes. INSEP is the ideal training centre for elite athletes in view of the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.
