With a grueling schedule of 58 regular season games and thousands of bus miles annually, the importance of keeping the student-athletes healthy can’t be overstated. The Wenatchee Wild are pleased to welcome Matt Delisi to the staff where he will serve as Athletic Trainer.
With a personal history loaded with experience, Delisi brings a wealth of knowledge with him. He grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska and received his Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Health Professions, Art, Architecture) from the University of Missouri with a Multicultural Certificate. He then went to the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) for his Master’s in Athletic Training, working with Elkhorn South High School (where the football and softball teams won the Nebraska state championship), and UNO Men’s Basketball, followed by a Summer Internship with Mizzou Sports Medicine primarily working with Football. He then worked with the USHL’s Omaha Lancers the following fall, and the UNO Softball and Swimming & Diving program this past spring. Sports wise, he competed in soccer, baseball, and swimming and competed on the Mizzou Club Swim Team where they finished 3rd at Club Nationals in 2012 and 2013.
Delisi eagerly awaits this new chapter. “I am very excited to be a part of the Wenatchee Wild organization, working with the most successful coach in US Junior Hockey history and a staff that I have a great amount of respect for. I am looking forward to providing the best possible care for the athletes of the Wild in order to continue the great success that this organization has achieved in the BCHL.”
