Accomplishments

As one of the fastest growing programs in the Chicago area, the 2021 - 22 season marks our fifth full season of Thunder Fastpitch softball. 

Our program focuses heavily on player development and the results show that what we are doing is working. Thunder teams have earned Top 3 finishes in more than half of all the tournaments we've participated in during our history, and we have won multiple Championships across levels.

If you remove first year teams from that statistic (since first year teams inherently struggle initially), that percentage rises to almost 70%.

Not only are our teams able to compete from day one, but our focus on player development ensures that our young athletes continue to improve and compete with the best programs in the midwest while not having to sacrifice other interests like basketball, volleyball, and others. Many programs talk about supporting multi-sport athletes, but then pressure their players to choose softball above all else. We believe that it's best for our athletes to be well-rounded and our results validate that this approach works.

If you're looking for a program that's going to help your young athlete see how working hard, trusting others to do the same, and committing to a common goal pays off, we'd love for you to learn more about joining the Thunder.
