Kevin and his wife, Sarah, head up our Future Wrestlers Program. They're wonderful with the children, having a toddler of their own in the program. They display the right mix of enthusiasm, excitement, and discipline while making it extremely fun for the children.
Coach Garrett Marschka - K-12 Assistant Coach
Garrett joins the Grappling House Staff with a tremendous pedigree for nearby Chiles High School in Tallahassee. He finished his HS career with a 117-25 career record, which is the all time career win leader in the County.
Garrett was a 1x Regional Champ in 2023, but a 3x Finalist through his career. On the district level, he was a 2x Champion, and a 4x Finalist. He qualified for the FHSAA State Tournament all 4 years of HS for Chiles. Twice, he was named to the All Big Bend First Team, and two more times to the All Big Bend Second Team.
He brings enthusiasm to coaching, and an eye for detail. Coach Garrett is still on the younger side (19), so the youth wrestlers have watched his competition career unfold, and have a lot of respect for what he's accomplished. As a result, they've quickly taken to him as a Coach and mentor.
Coach Vince Cicco - K-12
As a Competitor in Pennsylvania, Coach Cicco was a 4 year letter-winner. He didn't pick up the sport until his Freshman Year in High School, but learned a lot in a short time. Through HS and after, he developed a love for Wrestling that culminated with his son, Dominic, getting into the sport at a young age. Dominic was Grappling House's first student back in 2018, and Vince began as an assistant with us shortly after.
In the time between then and now, Vince has studied the Sport of Wrestling like a Scientist. He's constantly learning and adding new techniques to our curriculum, doing film study behind the scenes, and assisting in implementing drills and new-age thinking into our practices.
He's an excellent motivator and understands psychology in a way that's beneficial to the entire team. He's helped train and prepare 8 Youth/Middle School State Medalists and 1 State Champion in Florida.
