Greetings to all current and future female athletes of Fisher Catholic High School!

We, here at Fisher Catholic, have the opportunity to participate in a strength and conditioning program that will benefit all female athletes in any sport.  The focus began with the volleyball program, but upon further research, it could benefit all sports and all levels of play from Junior High to the Varsity programs.  "Nervous System Training or NST" is an organization that focuses on improving athleticism, team chemistry and prevention of injuries to better prepare for competition.

Our sessions will take place here at Fisher Catholic High School on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:45.  For 8 weeks (June and July,) 75 minute sessions and NST bringing in all their equipment: Resisted Trainers - Assisted Training - Ladders - Cones - Hip Flexor Development Bands.  Cost is $5.00 per session with a pre-registration requirement.  Total cost for the sessions are paid upon registration, $80 total.  This is for the entire 8 weeks of workout.

A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO LEO AND JANE THIMMES

The Fisher Catholic Athletic Department would like to thank Leo and Jane Thimmes for their generous donation in support of Irish Athletics. While taking photos at one of the Lady Irish Softball games last spring, Mr. Thimmes noticed that the "net" which serves as the backstop, was showing considerable wear and tear. In true Fisher Catholic fashion, Mr. and Mrs. Thimmes took it upon themselves to do something about it. Thanks to their generous gift, our girls softball team has a new backstop net that should "catch" foul balls for many years to come. Thank you Leo and Jane for your continued support of FCHS!
