The RI Thunder Gold (Lotti)  was founded in 1997 and is one of New England's premier organizations.

There are 11 teams that proudly fly the banner from 10's to 18's.  It is run by Dave Lotti, a nationally known travel coach since 1997 with a vast network of college coaches available to him at any time. He has been assisted by Bob Rossi since 2002. Bob Rossi is responsible for talking to college coaches from around the country on behalf of the players in the organization. Rhode Island Thunder Gold (Lotti) is PROUD to say all girls on this team have gone to school on scholarship. 75% of these scholarships have been full rides.

Many girls have gone on to become leaders in business, lawyers, doctors, teachers and college coaches.  Hundreds of RI Thunder players throughout the organization have received scholarship money.

Go RI Thunder Gold!!!!
