What's It All About?
The Jersey Thunder Elite is the traveling team for Ath-Ed Sports, Incorporated. Keeping our basic principles in mind, we want you to PLAY a lot, not PAY a lot.

How Do We Prepare You For Collegiate Lacrosse?
Our staff is full of high school coaches with tons of experience in college recruiting, former Division I lacrosse players, and college coaches.
