ANNOUNCEMENTS 3/31/2014: This weekend we had an amazing Diamond Academy moment. On Saturday, 3/29/14, D.A. held its largest outdoor training to date successfully training 90 girls back to back. This was done with a lot of planning, drawing plans, preparation, coaches being on board, and teamwork. We were so happy to see the smiles on the towns face as they watched their program come back to life. Nine more weeks to go and we guarantee the softball feeling will spread throughout the town.

At Diamond Academy, we pride ourselves on always learning. Due to the growth in technology, the science of the swing and overall mechanics have changed drastically over the years. With that, the Diamond Academy staff attended the 2014 Be The Best Coaching Clinic held in Cherry Hill, NJ. Some key speakers included: Patty Gasso (Oklahoma Head Coach WCWS Winners), Ralph and Karen Weekly (University Of Tenn.), Stacy Nuveman (Olympic Catcher & San Diego State Coach), Cindy Bristow (Softball Excellence), Lisa Fernandez (USA Pitcher and UCLA Coach) and many more elite coaches. We are proud to say that Diamond Academy shares the same exact hitting mechanics and styles of the best coaches across the country. See the pictures below of the coaches who support Diamond Academy and our goal to build a strong female athlete mentally AND physically.

Diamond Academy Elite Softball Training opened in Westwood NJ in January 2011 with owner Coach Lisa.  Prior to the doors opening at DA, Coach Lisa started/owned Mobile Softball Training since 2005.  MST was an outdoor based softball training company in which trainers would travel throughout northern/central NJ to train softball athletes on their home turf defensively and offensively.  After its 6th year in business, the dirt became turf when the doors of Diamond Academy were opened.


Although MST was a great success throughout the years, DA is now an even better success training all year round.  Coach Lisa has hired the best instructors in the area, all who of which are former collegiate athletes, trainers, coaches and/or teachers in the game.  DA is well known for the “DA Way” which is a training method of breaking down the skills created by Coach Lisa that is taught throughout the facility by EVERY trainer.  The "DA Way" has led Diamond Academy to train 300 plus female athletes in the area over the past years. 


Every trainer at DA is passionate, focused, motivated, knowledgeable, hard-working and motivational.  Diamond Academy is known to be the opposite of the typical training facility as DA is against a “factory like” mentality.  Every player that becomes a DA athlete is each trainer’s personal goal throughout the years.  Besides the physical breakdown of at least 8 plus muscle memory drills in each lesson, DA trainers push self-confidence throughout the session. DA trainers train what is needed throughout the lesson which is personalized for each client. Every client is trained to their needs, which is why Diamond Academy is a successful training facility.


Diamond Academy has 7 private trainers on staff, all whom have played collegiate softball.  We also have 4 female trainers who are apart of our clinics and outdoor training sessions. Each trainer emphasizes self-confidence in every lesson as well as every clinic.  Many facilities train athletes physically to improve their mechanics and power.  Yet at DA, instructors work to improve softball performance with mental training to create a confident ball player.  


Due to the amount of positive feedback Diamond Academy has been featured in: The Bergen Record, signacoach.com, allsportslessons.com, Community Life newspaper, Pascack Press and much more.  DA had the recent accomplishment of training collegiate athletes recently featured on the 2013 NCAA DI Players on ESPN.

Remember: GO HARD OR STAY HOME.
