DME Academy is one of the most prestigious boys' sports-induced academies in the United States. We offer three baseball programs: our travel youth ball teams, our Middle School Academy team, and our High School Academy team. With best-in-class training facilities and our professional coaching staff with MLB and College experience, we have created an environment that sets DME student-athletes up for success.
With years of professional and collegiate experience, our team brings out the best in student-athletes as we continually develop our student-athletes for the next level.
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.
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.
Dan Panaggio is the Co-Founder of DME Academy and head of all basketball operations. He has coached three NBA teams as well as a trio of the most prestigious NCAA Division I programs including Oklahoma, Indiana, and Marquette.
We believe that a positive & nurturing environment brings out the best in all athletes. Positive words have an encouraging impact on a person's confidence and are vital for healthy development. Our mindfulness methodology is engrained in our program.
