Diamonds Lacrosse Club is an organization dedicated to the development of young female lacrosse players, not only into successful athletes and teammates, but also confident and prepared young women.
Club Director, Monica Yeakel, founded the program to offer players the opportunity to be coached by a highly experienced staff of woman coaches that have played and coached at the highest level. Diamonds is managed with the philosophy that every player, regardless of age, has yet to reach her full potential. With that in mind, the efforts of the Diamonds staff are always to diligently guide and teach every player by placing an extreme emphasis on stick skills, field sense, attitude, and teamwork. Ultimately, the program will mold players into recruit-able prospects if they wish to further their lacrosse career at the division 1, 2, or 3 level.
As one of the fundamental aspects of preparing high school players, Diamonds offers in-depth and ongoing support related to the recruiting process. As a former Division 1 Head Coach and All-American player, Yeakel is uniquely qualified to assist and guide all student-athletes and their parents through this exciting process, while offering group information sessions, and individual appointments available for each player.
Diamonds’ goal is ultimately to create an enthusiastic, yet disciplined, atmosphere for players to learn and absorb the skills and values the program finds necessary to be successful in the sport of lacrosse.
