DME is a family run Sports Academy. Many of our players come from across the World and because of this, we make a concerted effort to welcome them to our family. Our players are together a lot to support each other and there is daily interaction with our experienced staff who are always there to help both on the court and off the court.
On average we typically have 100+ coaches a year come to DME. They watch our team's practices and games.
We play a competitive national schedule including highly scouted events such as: She Got Game, Jingle Jam, Independent National Championships, Crescom Holiday Classic. We also play IMG, Montverde and Lake Holland Prep throughout the season.
