Welcome to the Mat Assassins.
Here we are committed to providing wrestlers a positive learning environment that will develop skills and techniques to have a successful wrestling career; elementary through college.
Mat Assassins Coaching Staff is ready to provide a personal coaching experience to help develop skill levels to compete and win. Statistics have shown that the only thing that makes one wrestler better than another is the amount of time spent in coaching and training.
Our practice schedule should be returning to normal following a very hectic week. Start time will remain at 6:30pm until further notice. Commuter van will pick up at the Ice Box at 6:15pm. Days will stay at Sunday, Monday, Wednesday & Thursdays.

Mat Assassins will be changing our practice schedule following the end of school wrestling season.
Starting Sunday, February 23rd, practice will be held on Sunday through Thursday evenings starting at 6:00pm. The commuter van will continue to pick up any interested in attending sessions 1/2 hour prior to practice time. Mat Assassins will also be scheduling team tournaments throughout the summer months. Please let coach Burgette know if you are interested in joining our team.
As you sow, so shall you reap.
We will also be developing an elite traveling team to represent Mat Assassins Wrestling Club. Beneficiaries would get to travel to national tournaments sponsored by Mat Assassins.
Keep in mind our goal at the Mat Assassins Wrestling Club is to develop young athletes and citizens, along the way we aim to increase wrestling awareness in the state, and put Scranton on the map of wrestling throughout the Northeast. If we as coaches keep these wrestlers intereseted in the sport, make them tougher, have fun, develop self esteem, and confidence to be used later in life, than we have done our job. A few state champs along the way would also be great.
