Club Philosophy

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.
Now is a good time to get an early start to the upcoming wrestling season.  Come on in and try our gym for a free one week trial period.  We are an open membership gym, your monthly dues covers as many sessions as you can attend.  Stop in or email for more information.


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.




Our sport teaches dedication, commitment, perserverance, sacrifice, focus, goal setting, work ethic, mental toughness, and delayed gratification is all of these traits that characterize success in every facet of life.

Life is not about discovering our talents; it is about pushing our talents to the limit and dscovering our genius.~Robert Brault
