Our Philosophy

 

In the diamond industry, the most critical characteristics in selecting diamonds are the 4 C’s: Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat.

Considering the traits required to develop a great athlete and a great person on and off of the diamond, Diamond Kids Baseball Academy (DKBA) defines our 4 C’s to impact an athlete’s development through: Character, Communication, Commitment and Connection. 

 

CHARACTER

Defined as the aggregate of features and traits that form the individual nature of a person. Moral or ethical quality. Qualities of honesty, courage, and integrity.

DKB helps our athletes build character by embodying core principles of honesty, integrity, love, respect and kindness. We foster great habits to succeed on and off of the diamond.

CONNECTION

Defined as a relationship in which a person, thing, or idea is linked or associated with something else.

Through the power of connecting with each athlete through embodying our philosophy and core principles, DKBA instills confidence in our athletes.

Confidence is defined as full trust, belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of a person or a thing, without being prideful. Belief in oneself, one’s powers or capabilities, and also belief in others. Assurance. Repeated success based on past performance.
