TESTIMONIALS

“It is our fourth year with the club and we are proud to be a part of the Diamond Club family!  The owners know baseball and our players can’t get enough of the summer camps, offseason training programs, Hit-Trax technology and of course, spring tournaments.  It has been great to see the development of our children both in baseball skills and overall life skills. Thanks to the coaches and ownership, Go DC!“ - The Rivet Family

 

“My sons(12U and 14U) have played at Diamond Club for over two years and now have more positive consistency both offensively and defensively.  Having played at the collegiate level, I know proper fundamentals are essential.  This is a focus at DC and the reason we choose them over other organizations” - John Garofalo

 

"Ever since I could hold a baseball, I have loved the game.  I started playing baseball when I was very young and though I had great passion and love for the game, I did not have the coaching I needed to have in order to build a solid foundation.  It was coach after coach telling me opposite things, causing me to both doubt my coaches and my ability to play the game all together.  This lack of confidence made me a mediocre baseball player.  When I was 12 I joined the Diamond Club family and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.  The coaches all repeated the same techniques and styles and made sure I understood them before moving on to other aspects of the game.  I began to play to the level that I knew I was capable of and by the time I was ready for high school, I knew the DC coaching staff had prepared me adequately.  Through their constant support and coaching, I made All State my senior year of high school.  They not only helped me at that level, they also cared about me going into the next level.  With their support I received a baseball scholarship to Midland University in Omaha, NE. Because of the Diamond Club family, I have reached my goals as an athlete, while pushing me to be an even better young man off the field." - Noah Brown
