The CMFC Wrestling Program is predicated on building a solid wrestling foundation while staying focused on each wrestler’s individual goals. Our unique program includes instructional warm-ups and stretching, technique and drilling, live wrestling and group wrestling. The program is designed to progressively increase in skill development and intensity. Wrestlers are closely supervised as the coach takes them through a 60 or 90 minute session with attention always being paid to proper technique and safety.
CJ LaFragola on Coach Billy Damiana
In order to build towards my past goal of becoming a New Jersey state champion in wrestling, and still working towards my current goal of becoming a Division I All American, I needed a driven and dedicated coach/mentor to push me to reach my true potential. Coach Billy Damiana was and still is that force. The first time I began working with Billy I was pushed harder than I ever was in any prior wrestling practice. Although that first practice was difficult, Bill reinforced his mentality of intensity and physicality while maintaining a positive and motivational attitude throughout. From that first day of practice, Bill instilled an attitude in me that has helped guide me through multiple State Tournaments as well as multiple NCAA Tournaments. The best example of what Billy’s training did for me was the leap that I made from my Junior to Senior years of high school. My Junior year I took 7th in the state of New Jersey, but with a full year of dedicated coaching I was able to jump six places to 2nd in the state, nearly completing my ultimate goal of becoming a state champ. Throughout that year of training under Billy, I perfected my techniques that had been effective for me in previous matches, and continued to build my mentality, which was instilled in that first practice under Bill, of intensity and belief in my ability. One notable aspect of Bill’s coaching that was significant to my development was his understanding of what I needed to do to win. What I mean by this is he tailored his coaching to my style of wrestling and equipped me with a personal training plan. This plan was both in the wrestling room and the weight room. Underneath Bill I have grown not only on the mats, but also in the weight room, both of which have made me into the ranked, Division I wrestler I am today. Lastly, till this day, in preparation for my matches and especially big tournaments, like the Division I National Tournament, Bill still helps me get my mind prepared to endure and compete with the highest level collegiate wrestlers. Overall, Bill has helped me surpass milestones that I would not have been able to achieve without his guidance, and has not only prepared me as a wrestler, but also, most importantly, as a person.

Boston University Wrestler Testifies
“I’ve known Billy Damiana for close to a decade now and the thing that stands out to me most is his passion. Coach Damiana is an outstanding individual with a strong work ethic and unrelenting desire to be great. I was fortunate enough to be a teammate of his during the years that he finished as an All-American at Fargo. His approach to the sport and his training has provided me with the resources to become the exceptional Coach that I am today. I’m certain that CMFC Wrestling Club will be a destination for wrestlers to not only develop but thrive under Coach Damiana. I would encourage any wrestler to check out CMFC Wrestling Club. I’m excited to see the champions that come from this club and I wish Coach Damiana the best as he looks to grow our sport and develop his wrestlers!”
