Thunder Fall News

The Thunder family has much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.  We are coming off our most successful fall in the history of the program.  Through the month of November, our 2017-2019 players had opportunities to compete in some of the best fall individual and team showcases offered in the country.  And though just nine years old and comprised of players from outside a traditional “hotbed” for lacrosse, Thunder was one of twelve top level club teams nationwide selected to participate at the National Lacrosse Federation’s Fall Frosh event held on November 1st at Boys’ Latin in Baltimore, MD.  The invitation simply confirms what we’ve heard from other program administrators around the country, that Thunder Lacrosse produces players and teams capable of competing with the top travel programs in the nation.

This fall our Thunder players continued to grow the legacy of Thunder lacrosse and show that Georgia lacrosse is no longer a niche market, but a solid feeding ground for top talent.  In the twenty four games played in Maryland and Pennsylvania through November, our Thunder high school teams won or were extremely competitive in all of them.  We had four 2019 players selected at the Philly Showcase for the All Star game, more than every other travel program except one.  Evidence of our growing success was on display as college coaches from all over the country lined up along the sidelines to take notes on our 2019 players.   While our 2017s and 2018s continue to turn heads, play well and add commits, the serious recruiting pursuit of many of our 2019s shows that we have arrived at the level of the best hotbeds in the country.  Our 2017 currently have eleven committed players and that number will continue to grow as national signing day for that class approaches.

Also in November, our Thunder 2020s (eighth grade) played in the Southside Holiday Classic.  The Peachtree City tournament included all of the top travel programs from Georgia and the 2020 bracket offered the best collection of teams that we’ve ever seen assembled at a local event including programs from as far north as Virginia.  With the depth of talent growing in the state, the 2020s coaches and players were excited to get a preview of next summer’s team.  The team went 6-0 on the weekend, showing improvement each game and reinforcing Thunder’s claim as the top club program in the region.

Thunder Lacrosse is as healthy as it has ever been and continues to offer exceptional opportunities to players in Georgia that are unmatched by other clubs. We are so thankful for the coaches and players that have helped put Thunder on the map over the last nine years.  We are blessed to have families and players who this program is now entrusted to who we know will honor and respect what Thunder is all about and who will continue to make this organization top-class for years to come.   People make the program and as a non-profit, grass-roots, volunteer based organization we are only as strong as the heart, desire, passion, selflessness and extraordinary efforts of those volunteers, coaches and families at the heart of the program – with this being the case we are in great hands and have a lot to look forward to with another great chapter about to be written in 2016.   Roll Thunder!

Haverty and Tanenblatt Earn Roster Spots at UNC and Dartmouth


​The Thunder Nation congratulates 2015 players Cole Haverty and Matt Tanenblatt on their selection this fall to the University of North Carolina and Dartmouth College lacrosse rosters, respectively.  Early recruiting in lacrosse has its flaws and outstanding players are sometimes overlooked in the process.  Cole and Matt continued to excel in the classroom as they finished their high school lacrosse careers and upon graduation enrolled in two of the top academic institutions in the country.   And once at UNC and Dartmouth, Cole and Matt followed their passion for playing lacrosse and earned a position on their school’s lacrosse team as walk-ons.  Cole and Matt remind us that we should never give up on our dreams.  And they serve as an inspiration for all Thunder Lacrosse players, high school and middle school alike, to maintain focus on their academics while pursuing their goal of playing college lacrosse.​

2015 Thunder Coaching Staff

Thunder Lacrosse continues its commitment to provide the finest coaching resources in Georgia.  We have recruited coaches with DI, DII, DIII and local high school / youth experience to our teams for 2015.  Eight of our coaches represented their college programs in at least one NCAA tournament.  The programs above are represented among our committed coaches for the summer. 
In addition to coaching Thunder, the Thunder staff can also be seen on the sidelines of the high school and feeder programs of Blessed Trinity,  Lovett, Pope, Walton and Westminster where they have led their teams to 12 Georgia State Championships.  They have also helped put Georgia lacrosse on the map by sending several  layers off to play at the collegiate level and the MLL.
