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.
Savvy Softball and Diamond Star Events have come together to make a great tournament even better! Formerly known as the Savvy Softball/Southern Force Showdown, Diamond Star Events is hosting the Victory For Veterans Showcase Nov. 9-10, 2019 in Dallas, GA.

Be sure not to miss the last showcase recruiting opportunity for 2019. College coaches will want to get a head start on their 2020 recruiting, and this tournament helps make that happen. And, with the transfer portal now such a huge part of last minute recruiting, some coaches are needing to add players their recruiting classes the start of the 2020 season.
