The Dickinson Diamonds softball board is recommending players have their own batting helmet, batting gloves, and bat.
There are a few options to purchase those items locally through Dunham's Sports or Walmart , and we will be opening up a team store through BSN sports(https://www.bsnteamsports.com/shop/20DIAMONDS )that offers helmets and bats. Dunham's has generously offered some discount options. The coupons are below. They are offering 3 weekends of 20% off starting this weekend May 29-31, June 5-7, and June 12-14. There is a 10% off coupon that is valid any day of the week.
Limited volume of helmets will be available to check out at your player's first team practice the week of June 1. There is a $30 deposit required to checkout the helmets.
A board member will be at the Diamonds' shed during the practice to assist in the helmet checkout. There will also be black pants available for purchase.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our Facebook page if you have any questions.

While the spring season did not go as planned, it is our hope that this summer is full of sunflower seeds and stolen bases.
The seniors recently sat down with a couple of Diamonds, current DSU Bluehawks Kamryn and Kennedy Kuntz for some interviews.
Thank you for your continued patience throughout this Covid-19 crisis. The Dickinson Diamonds are following USA Softball’s guidance regarding softball activities. They have instructed that there will be no softball activities prior to May 10, 2020. The Diamonds will continue to plan for both league and travel play during the summer.
First batch of orders are due by the end of day April 30th.
The Dickinson Diamonds strive to provide a positive, competitive youth softball experience for each player, parent and coach. We are dedicated to the advancement and long term player development of physical, emotional, and social skills. While winning is what each player, parent and coach strive for in recreational softball, winning will not be placed above good sportsmanship (respecting rules, opponents, officials, teammates, parents, and one’s self) or what is best for the team.
