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
