WE ARE LOOKING FOR A FEW Elite ATHLETES!
We select our athletes first on personality, attitude, and social skills. We are together off the field far too much to have these three factors not be the paramount ingredient in building our team. We then have a reference that gives us information on your skills.
We have had 1st team all-league players, 1st team all-state players, and athletes at the other range that we’re not all league or a few that didn’t even play school ball at all, but still were “High School Age”. We select our players on a variety of different factors, so it’s best to get your application in early for consideration.
We seek high energy individuals with an optimistic outlook WHO WANT TO…
While raising our daughters in central Ohio in the 80’s and early 90’s, one thing was very clear – they loved softball almost as much as I enjoyed coaching. We quickly created return nets in our barns to practice even when it was too cold or snowy to play. Many families wanted their daughters to practice all year with us too and we opened up our meager indoor areas to anyone who loved to play.
Through the years, we led clinics and tournaments and made so many friends that our softball circle was a large family. After my daughters grew up, married and started their own families, we all continued to support young athletes and continue on our Queen of Diamonds tournaments in the US.
But then, in 1996, we had an idea. As a blended family of Europe and America (Mom Whiteside is from the Netherlands) we experimented with a softball tournament we named ‘the Cup’. With our family and friends scattered throughout Europe, we chose to hold the first one Lyon, France. We created a French team of high school aged women playing softball.
Now, we are in our 25th year and have had hundreds of positive success stories that we want YOU to have next.
Listen and learn how you can improve your game, refine your skills and benefit from this 5-star experience!

Two weeks ago Anna and I embarked on the trip of a lifetime. Participating in International Cup 2018 was an incredible experience for both me as a parent and Anna as a player.
Playing Fastpitch softball against international teams, meeting and making friends with wonderful families/players, making future connections and getting to experience Amsterdam and Paris was all part of a jam packed week that we will never forget. We encourage all young ladies who loves the game to consider participating in future Cup events. It is worth every penny!
