As is customary, the 11U South Lyon Thunder will be hosting this year’s South Lyon Junior League All-Star weekend in order to raise funds for their trip to Cooperstown, NY.

If your child has been selected as an SLJL All-Star this year, the 11U Thunder would like to invite you to assist in their fundraising efforts by purchasing an All-Star t-shirt for your child. Additionally, you have the ability to congratulate your child for being selected as an All-Star by purchasing an ad to be displayed in this year’s All-Star Program.

Please visit this link in order to purchase a t-shirt, a personal ad, or to make a donation to the 11U Thunder team.  The All-Star T-Shirts will be available for pick up until July 10th, unless they sell out as there are limited quantities available. The Personal Ads will only be available until June 27th so if you are looking to purchase a personal ad for the program book please do so ASAP.

All funds generated will go to assisting the 11U Thunder in making it to Cooperstown.

Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t understand how the skills competitions work?
The skills competitions are typically held on All-Star Thursday at South Lyon High School from 6pm until dark.
There is no cost to participate.  You do not have to be there at 6pm, come any time during the evening.  This evening is open to all Junior League players, not just All-Stars.
We will have fastest around the bases, fastest pitch, home run derby and accuracy throwing competitions.  There are prizes awarded to the top 3 finishers of each competition for each house division.  There is no need to pre-register.  Just show up and have fun.  Full concessions will be available throughout the evening.

What time does my son/daughter play and what time should we arrive?
The full schedule of games will be posted.  Please plan on arriving at least 1 hour prior to your game time.  This allows for registration, photos and time for the league to honor your All-Star with announcements.  This timeline is also for the Matt Douglas and Abby Dolan award winners.

What field do we play on?  Which dugout?
When you register you’re player you will be provided all of this information in a packet.

This seems like a big event, who runs this?
Each year the 11u South Lyon Thunder boys travel baseball team runs the event.  This is their main fundraiser for the annual 12u trip for a week long tournament in Cooperstown, NY.  A full concession stand, 50/50 raffles, gift/raffle baskets, YOFresh Yogurt, face painting, balloon animals and bounce houses are all part of the fun.  The face painting, balloon animals and bounce houses are free of charge!!  This huge event is all volunteer based.

As the largest youth organization in South Lyon, this is our chance to celebrate a great season.  If your son or daughter is playing this weekend congratulations.  If your son or daughter did not get selected for the all-star team, this weekend is for you too.  Come and enjoy all the fun!
