The goals and mission of the New England Diamond Gems has been to foster a culture of respect and accountability through quality coaching instruction, physical and mental player development, and college preparation by using any and all resources available to us. We provide access to various indoor and outdoor facilities as well as connect student athletes with college coaches through strong relationships we've built over the years. In the best interest of both the athlete and the organization, We continue to enter our teams into quality invitational tournaments and college showcases.
It is imperative that all athletes who play for the Diamond Gems organization understand that their academic achievements are the most important part of their young lives. We believe that the well rounded student athlete who puts forth their best effort both on and off the field, will in turn become accountable, hardworking and successful adults. Student athletes must have a minimum of a 3.0 to be recruited by most colleges, but should strive for the highest GPA possible to allow for greater opportunity at the schools of their choice, which means not just 'getting by' in the classroom.
The Diamond Gems organization is determined to do the right thing for all athletes at each level, ability, and age group. Our dedicated board members and coaching staff are always happy to sit with athletes and their parents to set goals, expectations and the reality of what it is needed to accomplish each student athlete's aspirations. Coaches in our organization will assist in building player profiles, collect a list of prospective colleges, educate parents and players in the recruiting process, and use our resources and experience to facilitate the recruitment process.
We do not, in any way, promise or recruit athletes by telling them they will get a college scholarship or academic scholarship. Our mission and goals are simple; we will place athletes on the appropriate teams, let them perform at their ability, and use our resources to help guide them through the college recruitment process if that is their desired path forward.
