RBC Spring Social


The Thunderwolves Women’s Basketball Program along with the Jr Wolves Girls Basketball Program are teaming up to hold the inaugural RBC Spring Basketball Social, to celebrate the achievements of girls and women’s basketball in Thunder Bay.  The first annual event will take place the second Saturday of April each year, as the Thunderwolves’ season concludes and the Jr Wolves season is gearing up for competition.

“The Thunderwolves Women’s Basketball Family is extremely excited to finally get together and celebrate both our young female athlete’s and varsity athlete’s achievements under one roof. Grassroots Girls Basketball has grown by leaps and bounds over the last decade in Thunder Bay and the Thunder Bay Basketball Executive felt it was about time we celebrated our combined achievements and hard work. We could not be where we are without the support of our community. We have so many community supporters and we wanted to get everyone together at the right time of the year.” Jon Kreiner Head Coach Thunderwolves Women’s Basketball and President of Thunder Bay Wolves.

The first ever Thunderwolves/Jr Wolves Virtual Wall of Fame will also be established and our first inductees will be honored following the meal. Lou Pero will be inducted as a Jr Wolves Builder/Coach, Amanda Nesbitt will be inducted as a Varsity Player and the 2013 Jr Wolves U18 Team will be the first team inducted into the Virtual Wall of Fame.
