About Pete

I’ve been a varsity wrestling coach for 19 years and, believe me, I’ve struggled with all these things at one time or another. My first year coaching our entire varsity team had 8 kids and didn’t win a single match!

Over 19 years, our program's come a long way: three NY State Champions, 12 All-State Wrestlers, 25 Individual Section Champion, 60 All-Section Wrestlers and many dozens of All-League athletes.

Fortunately, for me, like most of you, coaching is a passion and a labor of love. It’s essentially been my “other” full time job for almost two decades…

Now with the years of experience under my belt; dozens and dozens of books on coaching theory, sports psychology, performance nutrition, team building and motivation on my bookshelf; thousands of dollars worth of clinics, seminars and classes attended and PLENTY of trial and error, I’m able to answer a lot more of these questions than I used to be!

You don’t have to struggle with these issues alone anymore!

Start here with our FREE eBook revealing 10 of the most powerful, unique tactics you can use to build a Championship Team Culture today.

  • Finally, get your kids committed to doing what it takes to be successful - before, during and after your season - because they WANT TO!
  • Create an environment where your kids put the team's needs ahead of their own - no more "all about me" attitude!
  • Build mentally tough kids who refuse to quit on the team or themselves - no matter how much pressure they face!
