Players are grouped initially by age and according to the information on the Program enrolment form which asks you to nominate your child’s playing status e.g. club, school, rep or beginner. You are also asked to indicate any friends who are attending and as long as they are of similar age and ability will be grouped with their friends. Because of our small group sizes we usually have the flexibility to move players to different groups depending on their ability, but have found that ability within each group is usually diverse and that moving groups once we have started is unnecessary. However the players are instructed at the beginning of the program to speak to their coach on the day if they are not happy or feel they belong in a different group.
Baseball is an outdoor game and unfortunately we cannot control the weather! We know how disappointing it can be for players and parents when we have to occasionally cancel a program due to bad weather and in most cases as long as the ground remains open we shall endeavour to proceed. Sydney weather is very fickle and can quickly clear as the day goes on. If it’s raining lightly we ask you go to the venue. Please ensure your email details and phone numbers are correct on the enrolment form, as this is how we will contact you in the event of any change.
We ask that all players wear appropriate baseball clothing and bring all personal equipment to be used on the day. Our coaches can only provide equipment for a limited number of players. So if you have your own equipment, please bring it with you. If you do not have your own equipment, we will accommodate.
We understand that circumstances can change. Should you need to cancel we will be happy to refund the enrolment fee in full with a minimum of 3 days notice prior to the scheduled program. For cancellations within 3 days we will credit the full amount paid toward another program throughout the year.
You can book your child in for one session or as many as you like however we recommend a minimum of 5 sessions with at least 1 session per week to ensure greater retention of skills and knowledge gained from each session.
The coach will carry out an analysis of current skills and techniques and make some evaluations of areas of improvement. Each player will receive a session specifically tailored to target areas of improvement in an individual basis.
Most of our outdoor sessions are conducted at: Northmead Reserve – Northmead, Barden Ridge Oval – Barden Ridge, and North Ryde RSL – North Ryde. Other venues are used as per client request and schedule.
Private sessions are held Monday through Saturday in the afternoons and evenings. Special morning sessions can also be arranged. Saturday sessions are conducted throughout the day. Special Sunday morning sessions can also be arranged.
Diamond Dreams winter fitness program is great! Coming off an injury, I have been inactive for some time and thought I could do very little to help myself. Being a part of the winter program, I am successfully rehabbing my injury while improving my fitness. The camaraderie is great and has helped my tremendously.

Towards the end of what was a long 12 months of playing, I was seeing my areas for improvement and it was strength and quickness. Craig and the trainers at Diamond Dreams have put together a great program for me which has already seen me improve my strength and much needed speed.

This is a quality training program. I don’t want to be the best I can, I want to be the best. I have been pushed to achieve the goals set by myself and the trainers and if you have a goal to be the best, see Diamond Dreams.

As a parent I saw a desire in my child that I could not ignore. The coaches have an intrinsic understanding of the game and how they approach teaching ‘the game’ is a style that is best appreciated not explained.
