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.
