A Message From The Club

Throughout the 2021-2022 season and beyond, Union Thunder is committed to maintaining the health, safety, and well-being of our players and families, first and foremost. Although this season has been unique in many ways, we will continue to support the individual growth, on and off the ice, of each and every participant in our program – the same way that we have since 2011. As always, our goal is to provide an outstanding educational and athletic environment for players to learn, grow, and have fun playing the sport they love.
