It is never just about the game. We understand that and take the personal development of our young athletes very seriously.
At Diamondawgs we specialize in education. We see all of our staff as teachers, not just as coaches. We see our athletes as an active part of the baseball or softball learning process. This means that our staff communicates with each of our athletes in a way that provides them with detailed information on the skill or movement being executed. The athlete then has the internal knowledge to make the necessary adjustments rather than a reliance on external feedback for improved performance.
We know that athletes must get to the point where they can feel their mistakes in order to correct them. The drills and exercises that we use are specifically chosen to provide our players with a greater awareness of the most efficient movement patterns.
