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 12-13 tournaments during the 2017 summer season.   The 2017 Diamond Wildcats coaches are Darrell Kolb, Kieth Welch and Darrell Hiatte.  Coach Hiatte has over 30 years of coaching experience and was inducted into the Missouri ASA Hall of Fame in February 2014.

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.

 Please note, if playing high school softball, players can attend a tryout however with prior approval of a high school administrator.  In addition, one day, one-time team tryout on a day where the high school team doesn't practice or play.  Below are the high school rules concerning tryouts.

2016 Diamond Wildcats Season Recap

In 2016, the Wildcats played 68 games and had 41 wins and 27 losses playing 14u "A" in the higher caliber tournaments.  In local tournaments, the Wildcats played 16u or 18u to get tougher competition and that paid great dividends in the development of the team.  

In the early season, the Wildcats placed 2nd in the 3N2 Tournament while playing 16u Open, won their pool in the KC ASA Metro tournament going 5-1 before losing in the 3rd round of bracket play.  

In their last three tournaments prior to the Heartland World Series, the Wildcats placed 2nd in the ASA Summer Crush Tournament playing 16u open, placed 2nd in the 16u Missouri ASA tournament, and finished 1st in the Summer Sizzle tournament in Linn Creek.

   In the 2016 Heartland World Series, the Wildcats won their pool going 4-1, beating both the eventual champion and second place finishers in the Heartland World Series and finished the tournament in 3rd place to highlight another successful season for the Wildcats.
