who we are

How did it all begin?

From the humble beginnings of a father wanting to teach his sons football, taking them to the local park and finding that week after week, more and more parents were bringing their children, engaging in the activities and returning, weekly to participate.

This was the beginning of Diamond Academy!

In 2014, Dean Broomes decided to make it official and formed Diamond Academy, engaging young people in positive activities in the neighbourhood that he grew up in, for the communities he engaged with, and in the sport, that as a teenager he also had aspirations of a professional career.

Diamond Academy has grown from a weekend kick about to structured club with training delivered by FA Level 2 Coaches, and teams competing in the Midlands Junior Premier League (MJPL) and the Walsall Junior Youth League.

With children and young people participating from ages 6 – 18, Diamond Academy Sports CIC, is the expansion to providing the same opportunities in other sports, as Diamond Academy FC is enhanced with educational options, leading to employment opportunities.

Diamond Academy can also support and provide opportunities for  adults still interested in playing sports like football recreationally, for physical fitness and for the goal of a football career.
