Tom Sirianni


Head Coach

Background: Wissahickon High School 1984 – 1988, LaSalle University 1988, 1989, 1992. Assistant Coach Wissahickon High School 1991.

UDYWA Founding Coach 2014-current

Honors: 1988 PIAA State Qualifier, 95 wins – high school.
LaSalle University NCAA D1: MAAC “all-freshman”, National Catholic Tournament 3rd. 37 wins.

Philosophy: I believe wrestling builds a foundation that offers an education which transcends athletics. Wrestling, as well as many aspects of life, you often are “on your own”, and must rely on your training and knowledge to survive. Learning how to win with humility and lose gracefully is important in wrestling and life. As the head coach, I will work diligently make sure our kids are having fun, learning how to wrestle, and developing skills to use beyond the wrestling mat.

PhilosophyI believe in work hard, play hard. Youth wrestling should be fun. It’s important to maintain a balance between engaging and challenging so that our kids develop a passion for the sport. I care less about the wins & losses and more about what our kids are gaining in return.  Building a strong foundation is the key to future success. I believe wrestling is a compounding sport; the more you put in, the more you get out. What you learn in wrestling goes beyond the mat. It’s our job as coaches to make sure every day our kids get better not only as wrestlers, but as young men and women. I’m excited to be part of this growing program and hope to leave a positive impact for our wrestlers.

UDYWA Founding Coach 2014-current

Philosophy: For me, wrestling is a platform to develop many skills, both physical and psychological. Most important are confidence and respect. If you believe in yourself you can achieve anything, at the same time having respect for the sport and your opponents is a must. The goal is to get better everyday, as a wrestler and as a person.

UDYWA Founding Coach 2014-current

Philosophy: Wrestling taught me to never to give up. I went 0-16 my freshman year in high school and almost quit the second day of sophomore year. I came back and finished in the Regionals in my senior year. The key to success in the sport is that you get out of it whatever you put into it. We are not just looking to make good wrestlers, but good people as well.
