Youth and Middle School
Youth and Middle School teams are for the 20-24 best players to compete on the same team under the direction of our coaches while developing within the Thunder Elite curriculum. The focus of these teams will be to work with the most skilled and committed youth and middle school players so that they are prepared for the demands of varsity level competition, and possibly college lacrosse. These teams are not recreational level lacrosse and will require an age-appropriate level focus and drive in order to succeed. We are looking for highly motivated Youth and Middle School players who want to train and compete each day to get better. Players selected to a Youth/MS Select team will also be eligible for consideration to compete on the Thunder National Team which will compete at the prestigious NLF event in July. We expect that the best players from Thunder Select teams will be prepared for the Thunder Elite teams once they advance to high school play.
Thunder Select High School Teams are designed for emerging players who want to improve their skills, play in local events and have an opportunity to attend regional recruiting events. The High School Select program is for players motivated to develop quickly under the direction of our coaches and have an impact at the high school varsity level and possibly play in college. The High School Select program is not a recreational team, as these teams will compete locally and throughout the region. The High School Thunder Select program offers a reasonable option for those with the drive to learn and compete at a high level with an interest of playing for Thunder Elite in the future.
