Thunder Tryouts


We are excited to announce our tryout dates and some new program changes (including a new exciting name) for our THUNDER FASTPITCH Program.

Thunder combines the strengths of District 112 families and players.  We welcome ALLplayers from District 112 who want to play competitive fastpitch with other girls from the West and Southwest Metro areas.  Next year, we are hoping to form at least 1 A level team at the 14U level as well as other 14U and 16U teams (if we have participation numbers to warrant those teams.)

 Our tryout dates are set!  Tryouts will be from 5 – 7 pm at Lake Ann on the following days.

Tuesday, August 9
Friday, August 12
Wednesday, August 17 (Call backs ONLY)

 Tryout registrations for both 14U and 16U are now available on the CAA website.

 If you are a pitcher or catcher, please allow enough time to complete an additional evaluation on your pitching and catching skills.

 We will also be offering off-season training opportunities for all Thunder athletes.  Opportunities such as Pitch2Pitch time, dome ball, hitting lessons, and pitching lessons will be offered as ala carte options so families can choose which option best suits their needs and schedules.  Please note these off-season opportunities will require parent involvement and leadership to help coordinate.

 We also have our Fall Ball registration.  If you would like to participate in fall ball, please register ASAP.  We will try to keep our 2017 Thunder teams together during the fall ball season.

 Please contact Meg Stone (meg.stone@emerson.com) or Matt Christensen (matt.christensen@phxend.com) with any questions!

CAA BB/SB Volunteer Fulfillment Report

Hello Parents,

Thank-you so much for volunteering your time to make this a great season!

This is our CAA Baseball/Softball Volunteer Fulfillment report as of July 27, 2016.

"Primary Parent" is listed next to the family's hours.  Duplicates are due to duplicate parent user names in the system or families not fully linked in the system to each other.  If parents have created duplicate user names, then we need to manually merge them.  We are working on merging, but this will take until the end of July, please alert us if you see a problem with the number of reported hours.

The report is run directly out of the web volunteer system.  If you signed up on line, then the hours will be reported, otherwise, they are not.

Report is for all "2016 Baseball" and "2016 Softball".  Parents in Baseball Age 5/6 are also included, however that division does not require volunteer hours.

Goto the Volunteer Information web page for more information about volunteer requirements.

For the 2016 season, volunteer hours must be completed by 9/1/16. Confirmation of hours will be published the beginning of August 2016 on the CAA website, with final confirmation published on 9/15/16.  Checks will be processed by 9/20/16.

Exchange Items
Exchange Item Widget on Front Page (swap, lost and found, or for sale items)

This widget is used to list items for sale, found, lost, swap or for items that are wanted.

After you post an item, you'll get a form asking for a "key" before the message is actually posted.  This "key" is emailed to you at the address you give on the Exchange Item entry form.  Once you receive this email, enter the number on the form, and your item will be posted.

This is a great place to sell last year's bats!!!
