Thunder/Desert Vista Girls Lacrosse Club Information
Our team has been playing in the Mountain Park Ranch/Foothills/Ahwatukee community since 2004. In 2013, the team experienced tremendous growth, nearly doubling the number of players and for the first time in club history was able to have both Varsity and Junior Varsity teams. Our roster of over 40 young athletes work hard throughout the season. The team is made up of girls that attend Desert Vista, Mountain Pointe and other high schools in the Ahwatukee area. Middle school girls that attend 7th and 8th grade at Altadena or Akimel, Centennial will need to play Ladies Lightening or East Valley LAX until they are in 9th grade.
In Arizona most young women begin playing the sport late in middle school or even for the first time once they are in high school. One of the league’s goals is to bring the sport to girls at a younger age. We promise to teach the fundamentals of the game and ensure all players have fun while working hard toward the team’s goals.
Practice is generally held 5 days each week at local area parks, with Pecos Park being the Thunder’s home field for all games.
