18U Thunderbirds


Coaches: Charlie Ball & Joe DiFilippo

In the Spring of 2013 the Banshee’s 18U team & the Thunderbirds 18U teams merged.  This merger brought together two very successful 18U programs who both have a long tradition of playing successful competitive softball.  The Thunderbirds began in 1994 founded by current 18U coach Charlie Ball.  The Banshee’s began in 1987 & the most recent 18U team was coached by Joe DiFilippo.  It was decided to keep the Thunderbirds legacy alive by keeping the Thunderbirds name for the 18U team.  The team is very excited about the 2015 season which will include attending two of the premier East Coast 18U showcase events (the Pennsbury Invitational & the TNT summer showcase).

Our 18U program has been successful on & off of the field.  Many of the current & former 18U players have gone on to successful high school & college softball careers.  The current 18U roster includes many varsity high school starters some of which are already committed to play in college.
