Diamond Gems: Welcome

2010 NH ASA State Champs



Welcome to the Web Site of the New England Diamond Gems 18U "A" Fastpitch Team--back to back NH ASA State Champions--based in southern New Hampshire.


The Diamond Gems 18U team is a competitive Junior Olympic fast pitch softball team which competes on the state, regional, and national levels. Our players come from throughout Southern New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts, and include young women of high school age. During the "off season" from October through April, the girls work hard, participating in various school sports, as well as conditioning and fitness programs, and practicing indoors. We are very proud that many of the girls are among the academic standouts in their respective schools.



During the summer of 2010, our "win / loss" record will be important, but the focus of our year will be for the girls to learn, to be "showcased", and most of all, to have fun. We won’t win every game, but we should “be in” them all. It is Coach Rines’ hope that when our games end, our opponents, the umpires, and the fans will all agree that our young ladies did their best, showed respect, and brought honor to themselves, and their organization.


Team members and their parents should check the "news" section frequently, as this is the area where changes in / additions to schedules, practices, and clinics, etc. will be noted / recorded.
