East Coast Power and Club Lehigh Join Forces
King of Prussia, PA: Let’s Hear It for the Boys! ECP and Club Lehigh join to create Club Lehigh Power. East Coast Power Volleyball is thrilled to announce that it has acquired the powerhouse boys program Club Lehigh, founded by Deb Schlosser, one of the region’s best-known coaches and club administrators. Coach Schlosser, who has helped develop both boys and girls volleyball in the region for nearly 20 years, will continue to support the new Club Lehigh Power in an advisory and coaching role.
Combining ECP’s existing boys program with Club Lehigh will create more opportunities for boys to play volleyball in the Lehigh Valley and King of Prussia than either club could have offered independently.
Club Lehigh Power will continue to run the tournaments Schlosser has traditionally run in the past, as well as develop new tournaments that will continue to bring powerful teams from other regions into our area.
Going forward, Club Lehigh Power will keep the same excellent coaching staff from both clubs, all the ECP and Club Lehigh boys’ teams and programs and maintain the same practice facilities and tournaments.
“We are honored and excited to join forces with Deb and Club Lehigh,” said ECP executive director Brian McCann. “The coaches and players at Club Lehigh have set the standard for boys volleyball in the region, and our goal is to build on what they’ve done, as well as create new opportunities for boys volleyball.”
ECP is especially excited to work with Coach Schlosser, who has a long track record with volleyball in our area. Schlosser is currently the head men’s volleyball coach at Alvernia University, a program she developed and launched in 2015.
Prior to Alvernia, Schlosser served as assistant men’s coach at Kean University. As the head coach at Emmaus High School for 12 years, she led the boys program to three district titles. She also has served as head coach for Court Authority Volleyball (CAVA) girls program and works with USA Volleyball High Performance teams and camps.
“Club Lehigh has been a centering force in my life,” says Schlosser. “I want to help it continue to do new things and to spread beyond me, as well as to larger geographic areas. The creation of Club Lehigh Power will enable that to happen. I am excited to see what our combined resources can achieve.”
