barbellsFisher Catholic weight room is now open for middle school students to attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 pm – 4 pm, starting on January 15. Students must have their own transportation to Fisher.  Also if school is cancelled we will not have lifting, please check the school website for other possible cancellations.  We will try to keep you all updated as best that we can. We believe in developing the whole athlete and in our opinion as coaches, students need to be resistance training year round, and this will benefit our younger athletes also.  Click here to read more about resistance training benefits year round, and more information on weightlifting. Questions?  Contact Tony Hurps at Fisher Catholic at 740-654-1231.


baseball and gloveIt is that time of year again to register for spring baseball.  Once again, Irish teams will be forming in the Fairfield County Youth Baseball League out at the Tschopp Rd complex.  Last season we had a total of 5 Irish baseball teams (2 coach pitch, 2 minor, 1 major) comprised of students from St. Bernadette and St. Mary. Coach Pitch:  Ages 5-8 yrs (K – 2nd grade), Minor League:  Ages 9-10 yrs (3rd & 4th grade), Major League:  Ages 11-12 yrs (5th & 6th grade). Player Registration at Dick’s Sporting Goods.  Saturday, January 24th, and 31st from 10:00am to 3:00pm, and Sunday, February 1st from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.  I believe the registration cost is $90 per player, but they give you 3 discount cards to sell for $10 each to recover some of your cost.  When registering your child, please let them know that he/she is with the Irish and mark it on the registration sheet somewhere.  Once again we will need volunteers to help coach.  If you are interested in helping coach, please let me know by responding to the email address below. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks, Chad Gauerke, Fighting Irish Youth Baseball, Email: Cell:  614-562-3275,
