The Diamond Dream Foundation, founded in 2006, continues to provide services that empower youth to excel in life by teaching them the fundamentals of healthy and active living.
ALL-STAR SPORTS CLINICS
Since DDF’s inception, we have enjoyed providing sports clinics to the youth of the DC metropolitan area. Partnering with local agencies and organizations, we teach essential life skills and values through sports and team play.
We believe in the POWER
of Presence! Passion! Play!
One of the ways DDF sets itself apart from other programs is the All-Star aspect. We partner with local major league players and sports icons to come out and teach the clinics! Each clinic also includes a small “huddle” with our representative All-Stars. Through the power of presence and play, it is our goal to impassion our young people to get more active and involved in their health and the community, and become All-Stars in life.
To provide additional support, DDF also provides clinic participants with equipment that they can take home.
DDF’s primary clinic has been baseball. We are expanding our clinics to also include football and basketball to better our community outreach.
If you know of any youth or groups that would like to participate in a clinic, please contact us.
We would love to help set one up!
NUTRITION & ACTIVE LIVING
In 2014, DDF is excited to expand its scope to include nutrition and active living services.
By partnering with We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children's Activity & Nutrition) and other healthy living programs, DDF will provide food and fitness clinics throughout the DC area.
We believe in these FUNDAMENTALS:
that good choices about Food & Fitness can be Fun!
Clinic topics for students will include:
• Why it’s important to have more color on your plate
• Fun ways to eat more veggies and fruit
• Healthy activities you can do outdoors with or without others
Clinic topics for parents will include:
• Cooking healthier for your kids, including demonstrations
• How to encourage your youth to be more active
• Ways you can encourage your community to be more healthy
Also, DDF will be working with local organizations and school systems to help them develop programs that nurture young people to eat healthy and be active, and help us to
inspire a future of All-Stars.
You can help, too!
