2015 Club Cup Champions


2015 CLUB CUP CHAMPIONS !!!!!  This is the 17th time out of a total of 27 years that MVWC has won the cup.  


 We are working on a new more Active Website for 2018, while it is being developed, this site will remain active.  We will try to keep it current.  


  The trip to Puerto Rico for 2017 unfortunarely was cancelled due to the Hurricane.  We all wish Puerto Rico all the best as they work to recover.  Hopefully we are able to return in 2018 for the Copa Sparta.   

The International trip to Ireland is still on.  There are seats reserved for 16-18 wrestlers to leave April 21 and return April 29.   The team will compete in the annual Ulster Freestyle Championships, as well as training with several Irish clubs in Dublin and Belfast.  Already over 1/2 the team is committed for, with downpayments in.   If you are interested in this trip you must contact the club ASAP.   As soon as the seats are committed for with a downpayment the team will be filled and it will not be possible to add wrestlers.   The trip coincides with SECTION 3 spring break and will cost Approximately $1300.00 complete.




A big success in 2017 with over 475 participants on Saturday for Freestyle and 200 participants for Greco on Sunday.  In 2018 the tournament will be held 3 weeks after the High School Championships.    This event is the premier Freestyle/Greco Event in New York State and will begon the International Style season.  It will be held at Canastota High School with 8 full size mats.

 2018 season  The 36th Year 

On February 27 at Chittenango Mi9ddle School the Club begins it's 36th year.   Practices are from 7:00-8:30 through May.

The club's clinicians will feature:  TERRY SHOWALTER, PAUL  LEBLANC,  BEN NEW,  TOM MULCHY, DEREK BIGFORD, with guest coaches including JIM HALL.    The club, Competition Coach MIKE LETCHER will also lead a staff of volunteer Bronze Level certified coaches.   This year the club is also encouraging former club wrestlers to return to assist at practices, to give our athletes the best experience possible.

For 2018 the Club will look to increase membership.  This will be, 36 YEARS.  It is an AMAZING  accumplishment to make it and survive.   Sons and Daughters of original Club members and past wrestlers, are now members.   We are looking forward to a renewed schedule, with a  trip to Montreal in early spring.   A new tournament in Rochester or Massachusetts is also possible. 

The International program will include a trip to Ireland for the Ulster freestyle tournament in April and the annual trip to Puerto Rico in October.  A return to Canada(Ontario) cup is also on the schedule. 




The club ended the 2016 season with a trip to "fun in the  sun" Puerto Rico, for the annual Copa Sparta Wrestling Tournament on Columbus Day weekend.    In 2016, the MVWC is combined with Pin2Win to  and Fulton Wrestling club to form Team CNY.   The group left on October5  and returned October 10 .   Most of the wrestlers  wrestled 2 days at the tournament, which features true International competition.   A number of USA teams , Canadian Teams and teams from the Central-South America  joined the Puerto Ricans in San Juan for the event. The team had several champions with numerous place winners.

The club unfortunately had to cancel  Puerto Rico  October 5-9, 2017 for this years Copa Sparta trip, due to hurricane Maria.
