The Licking County Thunder is an organization fielding age specific teams beginning at the 9u level through 16u based on player/coach availability. An 8u and 18u team will also be added soon! We are looking to find highly motivated, versatile players to grow in our organization. Along with being competitive on the field, we promote good sportsmanship in a family atmosphere!


The will to win is not as important as the will to prepare to win...playing with great effort and attitude, committing to your teammates and having fun doing it are the keys to success. Four (4) of our 6 2018 teams were able to meet this goal by qualifying for National tournaments!

More About Licking County Thunder Fastpitch Softball

Born to Compete

Are you a Licking County Thunder Fastpitch Softball fan? We know you are. In just our second year of existence as an organization, our girls captured eight (8) tournament championships! In year 3, four (4) of our teams were able to qualify for National tournaments! As we move on to our 4th season, we have added new opportunities. 1) We have formed a "partnership" with the new "Clubhouse" indoor facility in Newark! Highly-regarded private instructors Jon Pyles and Mike Ramirez will be working with our teams/coaches in a group setting to develop individual skills. 2) We work closely with Big League Athletics in Newark...they donate discount hitting cards so our players can get extra cage time for only $1.  Follow our schedule and come on down to our next event. We'll save a seat for you. Make sure you and your family do not miss out on our next fun and exciting season. We know you will have a great time! 


Everyone wants to be #1… but we really are! Licking County Thunder Fastpitch Softball is working hard to become the best Softball Club in the central Ohio area. If we’re passionate about our team’s drive, skill, passion and sportsmanship, then nothing else matters (except, of course, your support). Check out the players who make up our winning team and the people who coach them to perfection.
