In addition to a new logo for 2016, Thunder has a fresh new set of goals to go along with it.
While many people missed Thunder in 2015, the hiatus allowed us to think carefully about what we want the team to be and we’re excited to execute that vision in 2016. Simply put, our goal is to be the best development team in Canada. We want to be a training ground for hard working players that are ready to take their game to the next level. We’ve designed a season around helping our players improve their skills as individuals, and as a team. Thunder has everything a player needs to get the most development out of their summer: experienced coaching, competitive tournaments, a confident and supportive team culture, and intense practices. If you want to see the biggest improvement in your game this summer, Thunder is the right place for you.
But not all of our goals are new. The one thing that Thunder has always been known for is the supportive team culture it has for its players, and we want to continue that legacy in 2016. Thunder fosters a positive environment that supports individual player development while increasing our overall team competitiveness. We believe that part of learning to be a great player is learning how to elevate your teammates with you. When it comes to ultimate, we know that the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts.
But how do we do that? By bringing in the right people. We are keen to recruit players that want to develop their skills while sharing in the camaraderie, fun, and community of competitive ultimate. We are particularly interested in players that are disciplined, hardworking, and have a great level of respect for their opponents and the game we love to play. Outside of skills, we’re looking for players who are ready to give 100%, have a positive attitude, and are ready to support their teammates. If you think you fit that bill, we’d love to see you at tryouts.
