Great story in the Chicago Tribune/Naperville Sun about Bill Kugelberg's squad and its inspirational run to the 2019 ASA Northern Nationals Championship.
Welcome to the 26th year of Naperville Diamonds Softball!
Established in 1994, the Naperville Diamonds is one of the largest travel softball organizations in Illinois, designed for girls from 7 to 18 years of age. It is our mission, through the sport of softball, to help grow strong, confident, successful young women.
From our tournament programs that compete with the top teams throughout the Midwest to our in-house developmental division, there is a softball home for everyone with the Diamonds.
This past spring, 79 Diamonds played IHSA softball for 23 different Chicago-area high schools. More than 20 former Diamonds are currently playing college softball.
In 2016 we opened our indoor training facility, "The Diamond Mine," as one of the premier indoor facilities in the Midwest. An addition in the fall of 2018 now gives Diamonds players more than 18,000 square feet of off-season training space.
Each of the past two seasons the Diamonds have been the Chicago home for The Packaged Deal, the No. 1 softball clinic in America.
The Diamonds are a non-profit organization that survives thanks to the countless hours of so many volunteers. Please consider donating your time or other resources so we can continue providing exceptional athletic opportunities for your children.
A look at some of top performances over the last year. Go Diamonds!
Congrats to the 16u Kugelberg squad for its thrilling 5-3 come-from-behind victory over the Badger Blitz to win the 2019 USA Softball Northern Nationals. So proud of all the coaches, players and families on this phenomenal end to a great season. Couldn't be more proud. Way to go!!!!!
