Okanagan Thunder is now competing year round as a tournament/exhibition team.   Our Academy team will play in 6-7 tournaments between March and October, including pre-season team training starting January 2019. Tournament will include; Kamloops, Vancouver, Okotoks, Kelowna (VOC), Seattle, Arizona, and one being hosted by Okanagan Thunder. In addition to tournament play, our team will compete in 15-25 exhibition games within BC and the US.

Players are selected from the Okanagan and our roster will compete in Peewee division for its inaugural season, carrying 15-18 players and 2-3 coaches. As our players graduate from Peewee, coaches and program will make same transition into Bantam and Midget.  Program will have a full spring/summer/fall schedule between games and practice twice a week, including three months of pre-season training exclusively for rostered players, starting January 2019. FitKidz gymnastics will continue to be a part of our pre-season training.
