About the MB Thunder
The Manitoba Thunder is a non-profit AAA fastpitch organization, based out of the North East area of Winnipeg, MB. We play within the Manitoba Premier Softball League and travel to tournaments within Canada and the USA between May and July each year. Our tryouts take place in the fall prior to the upcoming season, typically in early September. Teams are formed immediately following tryouts and they begin practicing in January.
The Manitoba Thunder strives to provide an accepting and encouraging environment for everyone in our programs. Our high performance coaches see the whole person, not just the athlete. We believe that success is more than just the number of trophies you win, it's about the person you are off the field.
If this sounds like the program for you, please don't hesitate to reach out using the contact sheet below. We would love to hear from you.
