Boys Basketball

Coached by 2014 Section 6AAA Coach of the Year Matt Thuli, Fire Boys Basketball is one of the top Catholic boys high school programs Minnesota has to offer. The program claimed the 2007 Class AA State Championship and continues to make state tournament appearances as recently as 2014, when they earned Class AAA third place.

Several alumni have continued to play college basketball in D1, D2 and D3 programs. Recent program alumni are playing at Division 1 schools, University of Northern Iowa and DePaul University, and in-state programs such as St. John’s University, the University of St. Thomas, and St. Olaf College.


Below is the outline for summer basketball and Fire Power information.

Morning Basketball Workouts
Morning workouts will be Monday through Thursday mornings 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m.  Workouts will start on Monday, June 10 through Wednesday, July 31. There will be no contact the week of June 30-July 7.
No need to sign up—just show up! There is no charge for the morning basketball workouts.

Fire Power Workouts
Session 1 of Fire Power will be from 9:00 to 10:45AM and Session 3 will be from 12:00 to 2:30pm. Session 3 includes football practices on certain dates.  If your son is playing football and basketball, they should sign up for session 3.  On days there is no football practice, the athletes can go to Fire Power at 9:00. This will allow them to attend basketball and not have to wait until 12:00 for weightlifting.
