“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.” – Vince LombardiDiamond Ranch Academy athletic programs are an important source of positive influence in our male students’ lives and an essential part of their physical and emotional health. Sports help keep boys active and physically fit, while providing them with a healthy way to channel their intense physicality and aggression. They also help develop self-control and self-confidence, improving a person’s overall attitude toward life.Sports at Diamond Ranch Academy give our boys the opportunity to learn more about themselves – to become disciplined, to trust others and to be trustworthy. As our student athletes participate in these activities, they learn what it means to commit to something and be a team player. They assume leadership roles. They learn to work together toward a goal while still being accountable to rules and standards. They develop confidence and self-esteem. They find joy in being actively engaged in good causes. As our boys participate in these sports, treatment is taking place.We encourage all of the boys in our programs to take advantage of our sports teams and clubs. We’ve seen how involvement in them can really change our students for the better, and give them something positive to become really invested in. Sports give young people the chance to really care about the result of something worthwhile, while teaching them lessons that are far more important than the end result of any game.Our sports aren’t about winning, though we like to do that too! They’re a valuable tool in the journey of personal improvement, and they provide means for growth that are totally unique. That’s why Diamond Ranch Academy will always place importance on the value of sports.
