South Medford Matt Club has a desire to build wrestlers that will not only be successful onö the mat but also in life. Wrestling entails both the glory of winning and the difficulty of dealing with defeat. Striving to learn rather than to win should be every wrestlers focus. With the right work ethic, an open mind and the desire to seek knowledge anyone can be a champion. Our coaching staff always tries to keep an open mind to all ideas that are benificial to our wrestlers. We keep our door open to all wrestlers with a USA wresting card that wish to attend any of our practices.
Our main coaching staff of coach Bryant and Schumack bring around 40 years of wrestling experience into the mat room and 20+ years of coaching experience at the youth, middle school and high school level. We are always looking for individuals looking to give back to the sport and help build in the success of the team. Our goal is to build a team and a family that starts at the youth level and stretches to high school, college and beyond.
Practices are currently taking place at McLoughlin Middle School T, W, TH 6:15-8:15 for ages 5 through middle school. We look to start Freestyle/Greco practice at South Medford High School in collaboration with the high school program around the beginning of March and will announce sign-up dates and practice times as soon as available.
