DME is a family-run Sports Academy. No two athletes or students are alike. Every student-athlete has a unique footprint, so we create a customized, balanced approach that removes limits and maximize their potential. Our experienced staff are always there to help both on and off the court.
Numbers for indoor can vary from 8-12. In our Fall Ball league, we try to keep smaller numbers as it is developmental. Spring Club numbers tend to be closer to 12. Beach volleyball is 2.

Each player must carry their gear—PACK SHOES, ALL JERSEYS, SHORTS, AND ANY & ALL GEAR IN YOUR BACKPACK SO IT FITS UNDER THE SEAT. This eliminates the risk of a carry-on gate check when overhead space is filled. The player should never be separated from their gear!!!
Yes, we are required to stay at specific hotels through the “Stay and Play” requirements for all tournaments.
We ask that you make arrangements for your daughter to stay with another family/parent. Players are not allowed to stay in a room by themselves.
A DME practice t-shirt is the only required item for practices.
We travel the day before tournament play begins. The teams will generally gather for a pre-tournament team meeting that evening at 8:30 pm or 9:00 pm, so please book your flights accordingly. Return flights should be booked any time after 6:00 pm on the final day of the tournament to avoid having to forfeit in the finals or incur change fees/missed flights.
Playing time is determined at the discretion of the DME coaching staff and is not guaranteed. It is based on a variety of factors, including but not limited to, a lineup for each competition that will lead to success on the court. Playtime is a very complex determination. It includes the coach’s opinion, the athlete’s ability, the athlete’s potential, the team’s needs/game strategy at the moment, the momentum of the game, the number of subs remaining, and the team’s needs for the future. The coach will not be required to defend his/her thought process or conclusions in these determinations, and it is improper for a parent to make such a request.
Elite teams will begin practices in November and will conclude in Mat unless you have qualified for GJNC. We will offer an AAU National team for those that want to continue their season into the summer.
Travel is not included in the dues and must be booked by parents individually. That includes airfare, lodging, transportation to/from the facility and meals. We will provide the required hotel information to our travel parent. They will then share with the team. Please book ASAP as hotels fill up quickly.
Auto pay is mandatory and will start once the deposit has been made using the credit card authorization form. Alternative payment methods must be authorized by your facility director.
Being on time is required; however, if your child is going to be late (for a valid reason), they must contact their coach, (and assistant coach) as soon as possible. If they are unable to make a practice, they must let the coach know in advance as their practice plan may have to be adjusted. It is important for players to be at all their practices for the team to develop competitively.
