Our mission is to foster physical and intellectual development of our youth, as well as engage kids in leadership, sportsmanship, self-respect, and life enrichment.

We believe that healthy, safe and educated youth are capable of driving positive social change in their community if they are better equipped for life’s challenges and opportunities.

Diamond Hill North Side (DHNS) Youth Association offers youth sports, youth mentorship and development programs, literacy and wellness initiatives, and social change projects for underserved youth in the community.

Our youth programs enable kids to improve their health/wellness, develop talents, enhance social and academic skills, build leadership, increase community pride and drive positive change.

Navigate our website to learn more about youth football, youth basketball, youth socceryouth development, wellness initiatives and social change programs.


The history of our organization dates back to 1970 when the Diamond Hill Pee Wee Football League was established.
