The UFA Thunder

The Nebraska Thunder was established in 2017.  The purpose in our organization is to provide to girl softball players the same opportunities and facilities for development that is enjoyed by so many baseball players in Omaha.  We offer the highest level of facilities and development for players in Omaha.  

Whether you're an A player, or a C player,  THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL IMPROVE THE MOST!

The Ultimate Fastpitch Academy (UFA) is a division of the Ultimate Baseball Academy (UBA), and is located at 4225 S 121 Plz in Omaha, NE. 

Our off-season development program this past fall has already forced others to try to offer similar programs.  We will continue to raise the bar and strive to be the best development program in the midwest! 

Our program is headed up by Todd Petersen, state champion high school softball coach at Papillion-La Vista High School.
