About the Winter Session

The main focus of our Winter session is to provide supplementary “in season” workouts.  All practices will consist entirely of intense drilling and live wrestling.  This session will serve as a training opportunity and will feature minimal teaching/technique.

By providing a resource for athletes to find workout partners outside of their practice room throughout the season, we believe that LVWC Prep will help to accelerate the success of our local wrestlers.

LVWC Prep’s Mission

LVWC Prep functions as the developmental division (grades K-12) of Lehigh Valley Wrestling Club. All practices are held in the Caruso Wrestling Complex at Lehigh University.  This brand new, state-of-the-art facility provides an environment that is difficult to match anywhere else in the United States! At LVWC Prep, our goal is very simple…we want to create an environment where our athletes train to be the best on both a state and national level!

The Caruso Wrestling Complex in Grace Hall is located at 671 Taylor Street, Bethlehem, PA 18105. The main entrance is located at the rear of the building.

LVWC Prep’s Training Philosophy

Our practices are intense and focus on technique developed through a system of teaching, drilling, and reinforcement. Our philosophy is that true development is not gained by watching many different guest clinicians show a wide range of techniques. The LVWC Prep coaching staff is consistent with teaching and reinforcement.   The same coaches are at practice each week. Recently taught techniques are not forgotten – they are drilled and constantly reinforced.   We choose to treat our club as an “in-season team”, not like an off-season camp!
