Coach DeFilippis and his talented staff, inherently understand what is needed to develop a young athlete into a successful wrestler. Having been in the wrestling world for most of their lives, both as a competitor and as coaches, they have been exposed to most of what is out there. YSWC coaches have walked the road, have carried the load and can fully comprehend the good, the bad and the ugly that is involved in developing a great wrestler.
Yale Street Wrestling Club’s mission is to embrace and nurture all wrestlers, regardless of their ability, to work with them so that they can achieve their own ultimate potential. We treat all our athletes as unique individuals and we understand that each athlete requires individual attention and that no two wrestlers are the same. Fulfilling one’s potential at any level, is built on sound practice habits, strategy, mental toughness, conditioning, nutrition, and attitude. We believe in coaching. Our coaches have achieved the highest accolades and now are solely focused on getting our athletes to believe in themselves, to inspire them so that they achieve more than they ever thought they could and to install in our athletes that they must entertain possibilities that stretch the limits of their beliefs.
"My son has ben working with Donnie and his team of unbelievable coaches for more than 5 years. Now that he has begun high school, it is great to see the progress he has made and how prepared he is for his high school career. The coaches at YSWC teach more than wrestling, they teach the importance of carrying yourself on and off the mat with honor and integrity "
