Strathmore Thunder is also proud to announce the head coaches for each team for the 2024 season:
Strathmore Thunder Gold - Libby Wheeler
Libby is returning for her third season of coaching with the Strathmore Thunder. She grew up playing for the Thunder from u10 to u21. During that time she helped them win Provincial Gold in 2014 (u16B), 2015 (u21B) and 2016 (u21B), as well a Bronze medal at u21B Westerns in 2016.
Libby went on to play fastball for the University of Calgary Dinos (WCSA). She was part of the Western Collegiate bronze medal winning team in 2016 and 2017, as well as won Canadian Collegiate National Bronze with the team in 2018. While playing for the Dino’s she was named their 2016 Rookie of the Year, named both second and first team All Star as a shortstop (2016 and 2018), as well as named to the National All Star team at CCSA Nationals in 2018 as a utility player.
Libby has now finished her schooling at the U of C, receiving both a bachelors in Kinesiology and Education and is now a teacher in Strathmore. Now that she has returned to her home association she looks to give back to the program that helped her grow and works to create those same opportunities for her players.
Strathmore Thunder Blue - Tom Clooney
Tom is returning for his fifth season coaching with the Strathmore Thunder. Tom is currently NCCP Competition Development In Training (Lvl 3) and also is an NCCP Coach Developer and Evaluator.
