About Diamond Star Events

Diamond Star Events began in the fall of 2009 by running small, local fastpitch tournaments, college recruiting camps and coaches clinics in the Piedmont Triad of NC.  The founder of Diamond Star Events is long time travel, high school  and international coach, Ben McKinney.  

In the fall of 2018, Diamond Star Events partnered with Joel Goler, owner of Savvy Softball, to direct two tournaments Savvy softball had successfully held in Georgia for over 10 years. 

Coach McKinney and Mr. Goler have over 60 years combined experience in coaching, college recruiting and running softball tournaments, and look forward to using that experience to meet the needs of travel softball teams by providing well run tournaments for all ages, and great recruiting opportunities for the older teams.

The purpose of Diamond Star Events is to hold quality softball tournaments at a fair price where the teams, players and coaches are treated well.  Diamond Star Events will continue to provide the strong turnout of college coaches that have  attended the Savvy Softball tournaments over the past 10 years.

Diamond Star Tournaments will be different than most.  We will always respect the amount money parents and teams spend to play travel softball, while at the same time providing a great tournament at a fair price.
