Thunder SC Rec Program

THUNDER SC Recreational Program

Program Overview

Fun, Family, Foundation & Fitness

At Thunder SC we have a great history of success building a foundation for our players' development in a family environment that is a lot of fun. 

Our recreational program focuses on fun, fitness, and player development. Our program is run by volunteer coaches and overseen by a professional, licensed coach with the goal that all players will have the opportunity to thrive in an environment of respect and motivation versus fear and intimidation. We believe that success is achieved by building good habits. Therefore, players will be encouraged to think for themselves, try new things, make mistakes and ultimately be accountable for their own development.

Our curriculum was designed by professional coaches combining their years of experience with current research. It is specifically designed so each age group is provided the age-appropriate environment and instruction to reach their full potential in a fun, safe manner. 

Each season runs for approximately eight weeks. Teams fill up quickly so do not hesitate to register your player as soon as possible!

If you would like more information or would like to volunteer to coach a team (all coaches receive a $100 rebate off his or her child's registration fee), please email recreation@thundersoccerclub.org
