College Coaches

Search for Athletes LIKE NO OTHER WEBSITE!

Here is a little history about our approach

 

We are on YOUR side trying to help collegiate coaches in giving information to athletes that YOU would appreciate in your business of coaching in trying to field a team that can be at the top of your league year in and year out.

We began the Queen of Diamonds Showcase Events now near 30 years ago,  where we felt there was a need to satisfy the following issues:

  • We are not in favor of marketing companies charging $3000 per family to market athletes, there HAD to be a better way.

  • There are families that simply need a strategy and direction in which we can give them for less than 10% of a marketing company fee AND they have us for life.

  • We wanted a system where an athlete is selected to our events, they have us for their entire career for resourcing questions or giving advice.  

  • We wanted a way to give athletes that  have little OR no have financial resource to be able to use our staff and event as a a venue and think tank to fill their dream, this without regard to their families financial position.

  • We wanted to put in place a tool where an athlete actually knows they have D1 ability OR needs to move to D2, D3 or NAIA, NJCAA.   This by the family reviewing an extensive criteria we’ve assembled that in the level of talent their daughter is taking in regard both fastpitch skills, desire, etc, plus adding academic information.

  • We wanted a package of information so that our selected athletes were more exactly pointed to a university that that fit.  We don’t like ANYONE wasting others time and we don’t think our athletes should be wasting THEIR time in marketing themselves to the wrong ‘fit’.

  • We wanted to give our athletes tools for them to be MORE satisfied at their choice of Universities listing questions to pose to coaches (on visits) that makes EVERYTHING clear from the coach’s mouth to the family.

We want to be very clear with college coaches that having a staff in our corporate offices, traveling with a staff to these events with near 70, this ‘hobby’ of ours pays dividends, however NOT in the financial sense but in saving athletes and their families  money, giving them straight-up advice on not wasting YOUR time when they don’t fit and literally 1000 other questions we’re posed over the course of months.

We are a team of 6 staff that own and manage the newly developed iQ Fastpitch Testing Combine,  TheQSport, the Queen of Diamond’s events in America and the Cup held in Europe.  We have been involved in Fastpitch now over 30 years  Two of our staff played D1 Fastpitch on full scholarship, 1 went on to play professionally in America, the other in professionally in Europe,  1 has coached at the National level in Europe, one of my son’s in law was an All American Swimmer, the other male was a VB player.  We have very high level achievers on our staff that have experienced what these athletes and families need.   Our team also owns the rights to the Cup held in the Netherlands.  Fortunately for my wife and I, our girls and son-in-law’s own quite a few non-softball businesses both America and Asia, so we are fortunately connected in our businesses throughout each day.  Though THIS hobby takes more time than it should - BUT we love helping!

We all feel a significant need to work hard at assisting other families any hour of the day on any technology until they graduate to assist them in fulfilling their dreams!  So, once you’re a Queen of Diamond’s athlete..you can rely on us for ‘til you a) sign your scholarship, or b) graduate and start working at Arbys!  :)

We have to give you some disclaimers:

Do know that though we preach about NOT sending emails to college coaches that you KNOW there’s no fit.  Some athletes/families CONTINUE to think they all can play at an elite level and that MAYBE tomorrow their talent will rocket up the ladder be U of Arizona level..OVERNIGHT….my apologies..THIS is impossible!

Do know that we do NOT tell these athletes to write everyone in the region. We tell them to research academics and if they see a fit -- THEN write.  Sadly, many think they fit EVERYWHERE.

Do know we give them bullet points to write to you..these things:

In  the first bit of their writing, write a convincing argument for the reader to read on.

1st paragraph - their strengths and what they can do for you

2nd paragraph - keep it short and let them know where you sit academically

3rd paragraph - where can a coach see them

we do NOT share with them to share their life story or elaborate on elements of their game or tell stories of their last at bats

We share simply..what college coaches initially want to know (note - INITIALLY)

  1. HOW are you going to make them better

and

  1. Are you an academic risk
