Before we started Diamond Edge Academy, we were looking for a facility that wasn’t just for the pros — but wasn’t just for the beginner either. A facility that would allow athletes to grow both physically and mentally, in a clean and safe environment, an environment that wasn't only fun but also extremely positive. A facility that can truly cater to more needs than just the basic "hit the ball, throw the ball" facility, but a facility that can truly make a difference in one's life! .....and we couldn’t find one. You see, we’re all athletes at heart, having played little league, high school sports and more, so a mediocre facility just wouldn’t cut it for us. That's why we started Diamond Edge Academy and the vision of Sam Zagorac's to build a facility that was so much more than just some batting cages.
So we made our own. We created a space we could be proud of, that would function to the every need an athlete would need on of off the field. Whether it's improving your swing, getting stronger and faster, needing help academically, improving one's ability to see and react quicker or rehab an injury to get back on the field, we have it all here for you!
We realize that every student that walks through our doors is built a little differently (physically, mentally and emotionally), therefore it's extremely important to be able to tailor our instruction to the student's make-up to get the best out of that athlete. We teach to the individual and set a baseline for each student based on their first lesson which in turn allows the instructor to plan the course of instruction. It's extremely important for the student to understand their own strengths and weaknesses, along with understanding their own style. Therefore, in order to teach to the individual we do not teach a specific "style", but we teach the "absolutes" and base instruction off them.
We feel strongly in our teaching philosophy and believe that providing a positive and fun atmosphere aides in the learning process, while also building self-esteem and a strong positive attitude. Teaching the game is our business and it's a business we take very seriously. We understand and accept the responsibility of teaching the game the right way and helping the advanced, elite player fulfill their dreams; while taking the youth player and teaching them the basics to build confidence while passing on the passion for the game we love!!!
