Passion defined:  When you put more energy into something than is required to do it. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as possible!

About The California Thunder

California Thunder is an "PREMIER" Travel Softball Organization with 6 teams aged 12u-18u! In 2015, we qualified 2 teams for the PGF "Premier" National Championships.  Our 18u team finished top 25 in the most prestigious stage in the country. We have had teams participate in PGF Premier in the past 4 years in a row. In 2012, 2013, & 2015 our 14u teams have top 10 finishes in PGF Premier.

We offer a complete package of recruiting, speed & agility training, hitting & defense through our organization in an effort to get players developed & prepared for collegiate softball. We have assisted almost 100 athletes in attending college on scholarships. Our college graduation and success rate is extremely high because we stress that choosing a university is a decision that impacts the long term, not the short term!
