Diamond Academy would like to announce the dedication of our facility to Sue Phelan. Sue Phelan was an amazing contribution to the growth of the facility. One of the most caring, loving, funny, full of life, supportive, positive people that has ever walked through the doors of the facility. As of 12/5/13, Diamond Academy and everything that we stand for is dedicated to Sue Phelan forever. We love you.
"I met Sue about 4 years ago when I had my little outdoor company, Mobile Softball. She contacted me through e-mail to possibly train her daughter Melissa. I remember her sending me about 5 e-mails of all of Melissa's stats, pictures, and everything about her. I was actually kind of nervous to first train her! We met outside at a field in Maywood where I held most of my lessons. Just me, a tee and bucket of balls. I knew Melissa had trained at another facility prior to me with trainers who were known in the business but figured I show her how I hold my sessions and give it my best. They pulled up and I felt connected to them right away. After the lesson, Sue turned to me and said "I have never seen a session like that. We are with you until the end". She believed in me and what I had to offer. I have become more like family to the Phelans over the years. She spread my name like wildfire, supported me building the facility, pushed me to be a strong female business owner, pushed for people to see what we had to offer and more importantly believed in me when I did not have much except my knowledge and passion. She supported the facility so much and watched me grow as well as her daughter as she flourished. I remember distinctly her looking around one day at the facility and saying"what type of facility doesn't have a clock?!" I said, "Sue I am used to being outside, I don't think about these things!" Sure enough, she brought me the clock that sits in the facility as of this day. Every time I look at the clock, I will think of you Sue and how you believed in me and our many conversations. I promise to continue to help Melissa in her career but more importantly always be there for her as an older sister. Always in my heart. You will be missed."- Lisa

Diamond Academy Elite Softball and Baseball 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.
