SSWR THUNDER Rep "B' Program
South Surrey White Rock Minor Softball Association strives to teach young athletes the fundamentals of the game of softball and to foster the growth of honesty, integrity, self‑esteem and teamwork. Our Thunder Rep ‘B’ program is designed to provide players with the opportunity to develop their softball skills beyond the House ‘C’ level. The Thunder Rep ‘B’ program provides a more competitive environment for those athletes who enjoy that aspect of the game.
Thunder teams are certainly a step up the competitive ladder from our house level, however our Rep 'B' program is not a win at any cost kind of competitive program. The program has a strong focus on player development and players are encouraged to challenge their abilities. Players who fully participate in games and practices can expect to have more-or-less equal playing time.
To achieve this higher level of competitiveness players are expected to commit more time and effort to the softball team. Typically this means that the team will practice regularly starting in January, usually once a week. Pitchers and catchers can expect to attend weekly pitching clinics throughout the fall and winter. This practice schedule allows players to continue to participate in other fall and winter sports which we strongly encourage. During the season teams will play games throughout the lower mainland and have more weekend tournaments. The Thunder team is a select team so players do need to tryout. Our tryout process is designed to be as unbiased as possible so that athletes are selected based on their athletic and softball skills.
The tryouts for the South Surrey White Rock Thunder teams are held in conjunction with the White Rock Renegades Rep ‘A’ teams. The combined tryout is only one example of the tradition of cooperation between South Surrey White Rock and the Renegades. We have a long history of sharing resources so that South Surrey and White Rock athletes have the opportunity to play softball at all levels.
