The Queens of Diamonds is made up of several teams ranging in the 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U levels. Our young ladies and their families spend their summers traveling all around the state of Michigan and Ohio with the Elite teams traveling around the country. We average 7 tournaments during the summer months with several overnight trips and camp outs.
Tryouts for The Queens are generally in the month of August each year with practices starting in the fall. The Queens of Diamonds girls gives 100%, 100% of the time.
The organization has grown dramatically in the last several years, primarily due to the excellent reputation of our coaching staffs, knowledge of college recruiting, and the records they have produced.
Their leadership has attracted some of the finest players from Michigan and Ohio to join in the Queens experience. Our young ladies never seem to stop; as we practice and play all year long. As soon as one season ends we gear up for what comes next. Each year the level of competition increases and the girls spend a considerable amount of their time and their efforts into improving their personal,and team skills.
The Queens of Diamonds is not just any ordinary fastpitch softball organization; our teams are based on education, and family values. Not only are we teammates but we have bonded friendships, and become a large family. With the Queens experience you will rally around team spirit, friendship, hard work, family values and fun. Everyone is involved with the Queens; players, parents, brothers, sisters, coaches and even the pets, with this type of commitment and involvement you know you have joined a great softball organization.
