Thunder Elite Fastpitch is always looking to build its roster of teams for 2017 and beyond. If you are interested in competing with a regionally competitive, and respected travel softball organization please contact Jeff Steiner with inquiries. Regardless if you have an existing team looking to boost your recognition in our state, or if you have a core group of players and need help assembling the final pieces, Thunder Elite Fastpitch can help. We have an immediate need for teams in the '04 and '02 birth year but all well thought out plans will be reviewed for consideration.
