Take Your Baseball Game to the Next Level




Elite Training


Like It is a game.

DME student-athletes come to Daytona from across the Globe. Training every day with motivated athletes prepares us for the tough competition that we face on the field. We line up against top programs like IMG Academy, Montverde Academy, and TNXL every year.

Elite Training


Hours per Week

We focus just as much time on the development of our athletes off the diamond as we do on it. Student-athletes will spend 4 hours in the gym each week, working with our trainer, Alex Richard. He will be conducting strength and conditioning programs in our elite sports performance facility, mental training sessions & video playback to give an edge to our aspiring student-athletes. 




DME is actively looking for High School aged baseball players for the upcoming 2024-25 season.
The High School level teams have two goals: player development and college exposure. Our teams practice multiple times a week on the field and at our indoor facilities. Players also attend gym workouts with Strength and Conditioning staff. We play in top-level Perfect Game and Prospect Select tournaments and showcases. We strive to continue to allow the player the opportunities to improve their game through our program instead of a more “show up and play” style summer/fall program.
Our staff also has a large network of collegiate coaches that we send player profiles, videos, and metrics to. We work with the players and their families through the college recruiting process assisting in finding a school for them and guiding them along.
