The site contains information about the Diamond Wildcats, including our Roster, Picture Gallery, Team Purpose, History, Highlights, Softball News, Softball Sites, ASA Team Sites, Inspirational, Quotes, Rule Changes, and bios of our coaches.   The Wildcats are a  14U "A" team who play ASA and USSSA tournaments. 


The Diamond Wildcats are based around Jefferson City, Missouri.  The team was organized to provide young ladies an opportunity to compete against the best girls fast pitch competition.  The players must demonstrate a love of the game while having the desire, dedication, and commitment to achieve the most from their ability.  The team strives to demonstrate sportsmanship, respect, and humility during both wins and losses. 


The Wildcat coaches provide a learning environment where players are instructed and shown proper technique while being challenged to improve.  The goal of the coaching staff is for each player to improve through each practice drill, practice, inning, and game with season goals taking care of themselves.

 The Diamond Wildcats are a competitive “A” fastpitch softball team who play ASA and USSSA tournaments.  Playing time is earned based upon play in practice and games. The Wildcats carry a roster of 10-11 players.  

 The Wildcats tournament schedule will include locations in Missouri and Kansas.  Typically, the season includes 50% of the tournaments in Columbia, Jefferson City, or a central Missouri area town so hotel stays aren’t required (depending on your home location). 

  The 16U Diamond Wildcats will begin practice January 2017 with pitching/catching practices starting in January with team practices beginning in February 2017.  We will practice 1-2 times weekly. The majority of our practices will be held in the Jefferson City area. We will start playing in April, playing 3-4 tournaments prior to Memorial Day, In June and July the team will play 6-7 tournaments (until end of July which is dependent on the date of our last tournament). The Wildcats will play approximately 11-12 tournaments during the 2017 summer season.  

The Diamond Wildcat players all have aspirations of playing college softball.   In 2017, the Wildcats will create player profiles for each player based on information requested from each player.  The profiles will be combined with other information into a team packet which will be sent to over 35 NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, and NAIA schools.  In 2017, the Diamond Wildcats will play a challenging schedule including college exposure tournaments.  Through the years over sixty Diamond Wildcat's players have signed to play collegiate softball.

  Each season, the players are given Offensive and Defensive Signs which include Defensive Coverages (e.g. relays/cuts, bunt coverages), Pitch Calling Signs, etc..  In addition, the team provides rosters with parent names, players name, phone numbers along with wallet sized phone card with cell numbers for parents and players.   The team provides some basic ASA Rules which are the rules every player needs to know and understand.  The team also provides each player with Baserunning Rules.

All practices are organized with a written practice plan and have multiple stations.   The Wildcats will develop a softball schedule based on player availability.   After the schedule is developed the team will block rooms where hotel stays are required (parents responsible for transferring room to CC).  The printed schedules will be given to all players and will include hotel information (hotel, phone number, location, etc.), Softball Complex, Tournament Days, Type of tournament, and City hosting the tournament.
