Thunder offers competitive travel hockey growth and development within the NorCal/CAHA programs at the A/BB/B levels as well as High School Varsity.

The club uses TeamSnap for all team scheduling and communications. Please download the app and once your player is registered you will have access to team information.

USA Hockey approved requiring the use of neck laceration protection for players in all age classifications, other than adults, in games and practices, as well as for on-ice officials under the age of 18, effective August 1, 2024. USA Hockey Congress Approves Requirement For Neck Laceration Protection Starting August 1

While neck laceration protection will not be required for the Spring Thunder Player Development it is a good time to purchase, tryout and get accustomed to them.

They will be mandatory for games and practices starting August 1, 2024.
