Tryouts

2021 Tryouts - Registration Is Now Open

To best accommodate our existing and new players, the Thunder will be having tryouts for different age groups at different times.

Pre-registration is required.
Note: The registration process shows a "checkout" button, but there is no tryout fee.

Come be part of a team that values player development, competition, and having fun playing baseball. Based in Powell, but open to all players, we offer indoor training facilities, experienced coaches, and access to premier fields.

Our goal, as always, is to field multiple competitive teams at ages 8U-12U, based on skill level and interest. This allows all players to get the most out of the Thunder experience while preparing for competition at higher levels.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Olentangy Liberty High School Baseball Complex
3584 Home Rd. Powell, OH 43065
