Welcome! The purpose of this websitse is to promote the sport of amateur wrestling by helping wrestling coaches be more effective and efficient. It is maintained by wrestling coaches for wrestling coaches. We are not about reporting results, creating rankings nor selecting All-Star teams as there are many great websites and publications that already provide those services. We are about posting technique, promotional ideas, practice tips - anything that might make your job easier. This website will be effective only if coaches CONTRIBUTE ideas and articles. So please: USE it ... and ... ADD to it!!


Greg DeMarco, the creator and webmaster of Wrestlingassistant.com, passed away on April 30, 2008.  Greg was a devoted husband and father of three daughters.  As a New Jersey teacher and coach for over 30 years he had a positive impact on literally thousands of young people.  He was the developer of the Old Bridge Wrestling Festival and the "Madison System" for setting up tournaments.

His character and devotion to the sport of wrestling is exemplified by his hobby in retirement, this website, one of the many ways he gave back to the wrestling community. 

Greg's friends and other users of the website are encouraged to sign in and make comments in our Guestbook.

We want to honor those individuals for their loyalty and support. Any team, from college down to elementary and recreation programs, can submit one individual per year for this honor.
