DME Youth Basketball

Welcome to the DME Sports Youth Basketball page. Here, you will see that we have created a series of developmental programs that build individual basketball skills for ages 5-14 that they can use for as long as they play the game they love. 
 
DME Sports is here to grow the foundation of each players component skills and show them how to use them during competition. Every program, camp or clinic has defined practice session plans designed to maximize every minute of every practice. 
 
Our coaches, who are all very experienced in playing as well as coaching, love the challenge of teaching youth players of all ages and all skill levels. Winning is great, but our focus is on individual development!

DME ELITE YOUTH TRAVEL TEAMS

Has your player been a part of our Jr. Hooper program? Our Middle School sessions?  Or If you are a returning player, you know our DME Sports Elite Youth program provides the highest level of training in the area. The DME AAU Elite program is the competitive side of the DME Sports Academy youth basketball training programs.

The DME focus for all of our youth basketball programs is on high level coaching and the INDIVIDUAL development of each player.  Our head of youth basketball coaching, Daniel Mondragon, or better known as Dragon, says it best when he says, “we love to win, but success is our players learning how to play the game the right way and getting better.” 

In the world of travel basketball, very few clubs have their own facility, let alone the one owned by DME Sports. Our 2 NBA quality courts are the best around. But far beyond our facilities, DME Sports offers a positive, constructive and safe environment with coaches that are positive role models for your kids for more than just basketball.
