California Thunder is an "PREMIER" Travel Softball Organization, in 2014 we have had TWO teams qualify for the Premier National Championships in the 14u and 18u Divisions. We have top 10 PGF finishes in 14u in 2012 & 2013.

We offer the complete package of recruiting, speed and agility training, hitting and defense through our organization in an effort to get players developed and prepared for the next level. We have assisted over 100 athletes in attending college on scholarships. Our college graduation and success rate is extremely high because we stress that choosing a university is a decision that impacts the long term, not the short term!

The organization's hitting and defense training is coordinated through The California Softball Academy located at 515 W. Allen Ave Unit 9 & 10 in San Dimas, CA 91773:
