Cindy Fisher

Cindy Fisher was named the University of San Diego head women's basketball coach on April 19, 2005. The 2012-13 season was a historical one for the Toreros, as it is now the greatest season in program history.

Read Full Bio

In the 2010-11 season, Cindy Fisher had the team playing at its best basketball at the right time of year, as USD had an impressive run through the West Coast Conference Championships, winning two games in two days to advance to the semifinal game of the Championships against WCC-runner-up Saint Mary's. During her first season at USD, the Toreros showed remarkable improvement.

Fisher, the University of Nebraska's top assistant for two seasons, and former head coach for Wyoming between 1998-2003, became USD's third head coach dating back to the program's inception in 1978-79. She took over for Kathy Marpe who stepped down after directing the program for 25 years.

Fisher helped lead Nebraska to back-to-back appearances in the WNIT during her two seasons with the Huskers. In 2004-05, the team finished 18-14 overall and 8-8 in the Big 12. During the 2003-04 campaign, the Huskers finished 18-12 overall, and produced one of the top 10 turnarounds in NCAA Division I women's basketball with 10 more victories. 

In five seasons as the head coach at Wyoming, Cindy Fisher compiled a 59-81 record. However, Fisher's accomplishments at Wyoming go well beyond her overall coaching record. Cindy Fisher's Cowgirl teams showed improvement in each of her five seasons, culminating with an 18-12 mark in 2002-03. The 18 wins were the school's most victories since 1989-90. She also led the Cowgirls to their first postseason appearance since 1989-90 with a trip to the 2003 WNIT, where Wyoming notched a first-round win over Montana. The WNIT win over Montana marked the first postseason victory in Wyoming women's basketball history. Her 2001-2002 team at Wyoming finished No. 1 in the country in academic excellence with a team GPA of 3.486.

Before taking the job at Wyoming, Cindy Fisher spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Old Dominion. Old Dominion advanced to the national championship game in 1997, and qualified for the Sweet 16 in each of her three seasons. Fisher also built up her coaching resume with stops at Weber State (1994-95), Mesa CC in Arizona (1988-90; 1993-94), and Illinois State (1992-93; graduate assistant, 1990-92). From Cheyenne, Wyoming, Cindy Fisher was a three-year starter at Cheyenne Central High School, before competing at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington. Her career was cut short by a hip injury, but she earned her associate's degree in 1984. She transferred to Arizona State and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education with an emphasis in Exercise Physiology in 1988.

After graduation, she served as a physical education instructor at Mesa Community College from 1988 to 1990, before completing her Master's Degree in Physical Education with an emphasis in Administration of Sport at Illinois State in 1992.

Registration Packet

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. 


We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

An all girls camp that is at a high level for athletes.

Great skills training and then great team play in the afternoon. My daughter says she is a better player as a result of this camp. It is so nice to have an all girls camp that is at a high level for athletes that are already strong in their sport, but that makes them even stronger and better. The directors ensured the safety at all times for the overnight campers and the day campers. There was always a director in the dorms with the girls who ensured the girls were in their dorms and that no one could leave without a director with them. The camp directors always paid attention to detail in learning and also always ensured all campers were safe and attended to at all times.

Learning from the division 1 college girls was a great experience.

Learning from the division 1 college girls was a great experience. I had a lot of fun at the camp. The university girls felt like celebrities to me because I want to play at their level when I'm their age, and they were so good at basketball it felt surreal. I will always remember the girls I met and how much fun we had within those few days at the camp.
