Team : Thunder 12U

The Thunder Baseball 12U Team is comprised of young men who are 12 years of age or under as of May 1, 2016.  These players come from the northern New Jersey / New York area with the majority of the players residing in Bergen County NJ.

Entering our 5th season, Thunder Baseball provides high quality baseball instruction from a professionally trained staff. Our primary focus is to build each players confidence as well as individual and team success on the baseball field by teaching players the fundamentals of the game along with good sportsmanship and teamwork.

12 U Coaching Staff
Head Coach – Neil Kurtz
Assistant Coach – Jon Kuczik
Assistant Coach – John Rodriguez

The 12U team plays on a “50/70” Field.  50/70 means that the distance from the pitcher’s mound to home plate is 50 feet and the distance between the bases is 70 feet.  This is slightly larger than the standard Little League field which is 46 feet from pitcher’s mound to the plate and 60 feet between the bases.  The 50/70 dimensions help prepare players for the 60/90 field size they will pay on when they turn 13 years old.

The Thunder plays in The BIGS (http://www.thebigsleague.com/view/thebigsleague) and PBI Baseball Leagues (http://www.baseballclinics.com/pbi-baseball-league/) as well as many tournaments throughout, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Tryouts are held for each Thunder team (currently 12U, 13U, 14U) in August of each year.

New teams are formed at the end of each summer for the upcoming fall, spring and summer seasons.
