The Licking County Thunder was founded in July of 2016 by Director Jeff Jones...a retired teacher and coach with 30+ years of experience. Our mission is to improve each individuals skill level and knowledge of the game in a fun, but competitive atmosphere! The Thunder is an organization fielding age specific teams beginning at the 9u level through 16u based on player/coach availability.  Along with being competitive on the field, we promote good sportsmanship in a family atmosphere! We are always looking for versatile, motivated young ladies to join our teams! Think you’ve got what it takes? We’d love to meet you!


We are firm believers that WE>me!!
