The 2018 Lehigh Valley Open | Lehigh Valley Barbell | Saturday, 17. March 2018

Only $65 to register. Tickets available via the "Find Tickets" button above.

The Lehigh Valley Open is a USAW sanctioned weightlifting competition in historic downtown Bethlehem. This event is open to youth, junior, senior, and master ages, and novice lifters. Join the Lehigh Valley Barbell Facebook page for updates regarding sponsors and prizes. Also check out our website for more details. There are no refunds, so please be sure you can attend.

This event is free for spectators. Our Facebook page will have a livestream and we will have a ton of food, as usual. Please come and cheer on your friends, family, and peers.

We reserve the right to close individual sessions and/ or change times of sessions as we deem necessary to run a successful meet.

Tentative schedule until registration is closed. This may change based on registrations.:

Saturday: All senior and master lifters. First session weigh in is at 6am but will be 7am if possible. Session order and timing is based on what is best for all of the lifters. This could change.

Sunday: All youth, junior, and novice lifters. First session weigh in at 6am unless we can do 7am. In the event that we can run the entire meet in one day we will move this to Saturday. That isn't likely, though.

Clothing: A weightlifting sliglet is encouraged. However, all lifters can use tight spandex shorts and a tight fitting collarless t-shirt instead. Here are the official guidelines:

Awards: Medals will be given to the Top Three lifters in senior, youth, and junior classes. Overall top three medals will be given to masters, and to the novice session.

Refund Policy: There are no refunds or transfers allowed for this event.
