Notes from our President

 

BFS; Bigger, Faster, Stronger  weight training program.

Last year the Oshkosh Flyers started a weight training program under the direction of Coach Joe Schleis based on the BFS; Bigger, Faster, Stronger weight training program.  As an organization we saw the benefits our athletes were rewarded with after a full season of weight training.  By the end of the season we felt our kids were Bigger, Faster, and Stronger than our opponents.  After our season was completed, Oshkosh West offered an off-season weight training program for our athletes to utilize at their facility and it was called CATS.  There was a pretty good turnout of middle school kids and then we opened it up to 4th graders as well and they jumped right in there with the older boys. 

Because of the momentum this program seems to have the Flyers wanted some of our coaches to become BFS certified.  Therefore during the summer three of our coaches; Joe Framke, Kelly Schmitt, and Dave Hickman became BFS certified.  Joe Schleis will run our weight training program during the season this year and with the help of Joe, Kelly, and Dave, we will have the boys weight training on Mondays and Thursdays like we did last year.  If you want to watch the boys go thru the circuit please come to practice on one of those nights it is really neat to see them in action and the motivation Joe brings to this program

 

July 19, 2014 Equipment Handout

Equipment handout will be on Saturday, July 19th, at the Flyers Storage Shed on Omro Rd (old Hwy 21) just east of where it intersects with new Hwy 21.  If you are unable to be at equipment handout, please let your head coach know BEFORE Saturday, July 19th so he is not waiting for you.  It is your responsibility to make alternate arrangements to pick up your equipment.

Thank you to Aurora Medical

Aurora Medical Center will be providing trainers at all of the home games again this year. This is a very generous donation and a great help to the Flyers organization.

Also, Aurora will be offering a baseline screening for concussions. The cost is $15.00 per player.   We will be giving each player an informational sheet providing information on this procedure.  Click here for details.

It is very much appreciated by our staff and our players and parents.

Thanks Aurora!

 

Reminders to Parents and Volunteers

A gentle reminder to parents: 

Parents, our league is very specific in who is allowed to coach our teams.  All coaches must be certified and have a background check before they can coach.  Our Club can face huge fines and suspension for not abiding to this rule.  Both during practice and on game days, please allow the coaches and players to concentrate on the task at hand and remind your family/friends that talking with the players and/or offering "advise" from the sidelines causes distraction to the player and the team.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter.  If you have a concern about your son, please address it with your head coach, preferably not on game day. 

As always, if you have a concern, please do not hesitate to talk with your head coach or a member of our Executive Board - Bob Dahl, or Pete Nichols.

Severe Weather:

If there is severe weather the coaches may delay or cancel practice, but all players should show up at the practice field on time and ready to practice.

 

If severe weather should halt practice the coaches will determine if the practice should be delayed or cancelled.  In the event that practice is cancelled parents must be available to pick up their children before the scheduled time.
