Michigan Thunder FC is dedicated to focus on the future of player development and player pathway opportunities to provide the ultimate all-around soccer experience.
Michigan Thunder FC has player development partnerships with Nike Soccer, FC Barcelona, and ISL Futbol, and progressed its current partnership with West Ham United while maintaining much of Dexter Soccer Club’s base. We have also redeveloped our club philosophy, coaching structure, and DNA based on our new partnerships. The club will be overseen by the clubs Director Ashley Wormall, as well as directors for the boys, girls, and goalkeepers, working together to provide the most specific developmental plan for each individual player.
During the past year, we have had a number of successes with over 10 club players being invited to the West Ham United National Camp, with 3 of those players being invited over to England and train at the West Ham United Academy. Over 10 players were identified at the FC Barcelona camp with 4 players flying out to train over in Barcelona. Our U18 boys had a number of successes which included winning premier 1, beating top 25 ranked NAIA college team and having a number of players commit to play at the collegiate level. We have also had a number of teams win their divisions and tournaments.
The club also offers the Thunder Strikers and Little Bolts programs for newer soccer players ranging from 3-10 years of age that enables players to be introduced to this beautiful game. This year alone we had over 300 players come through the program, with over 30 players graduating into the travel side of the club for the winter and spring seasons.
The club's coaching staff has a wealth of experience, knowledge, and history within the game. The current coaching staff consists of current college coaches, high school coaches, former MLS club coaches, former professional players, former collegiate players and coaches with over 25 years of coaching experience.
Join Michigan Thunder for the 2018-19 season, we look forward to having you with us!
