HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM FIGURES POSTFACTS GRAD & PROGRAM HS NATIONAL TEAM DME's high school National team plays a nationwide schedule of 30+ games. DME competes in one of the top prep basketball conferences in the US: the SIAA, which every year is loaded with Division I talent from around the world. DME is also one of the select few teams to compete in The Grind Session, which features most of the top 25 prep school programs in the country; DME Sports Academy is one of only a handful of schools to host its own Grind Session. DME’s objective is to provide players on our National team the very best competition—and accompanying exposure—possible.
HS REGIONAL TEAM DME's high school Regional team plays a full 30+ game schedule, competing against teams from the FHSAA and other regional conferences. Players on DME’s Regional team won’t find the competition at all lacking; Central Florida and the Orlando/Jacksonville/Daytona triangle annually produce some of the best basketball talent in the Southeast US, and in the country as a a whole. And at DME, that’s who you’ll be facing on a regular basis.
POST GRAD TEAMS DME fields three Post Grad teams, composed of prospective scholarship athletes from all across the world. The teams are divided after a vigorous training camp in order to provide each player the best opportunity to play, develop and earn exposure. All post grad teams also play a 30+ game schedule against teams from Florida, the Southeast US, and beyond. The best of DME’s postgrad athletes are selected to compete on a combined National team for major tournaments throughout the season, including against the traditionally tough New England region prep schools.
SUMMER PREP PROGRAM The DME Summer Prep academy starts on July 1, 2018, and runs through July 31. The training program is based on DME's highly successful high school and post-grad basketball skill development program. In addition to learning from DME's NBA and NCAA experienced staff, DME Summer Prep athletes battle against some of the top players in Florida and beyond in summer games and tournaments—a great way to experience the competitiveness of the US hoops scene. This package includes accommodation, meals, ground transportation, live-streamed home games, tournaments, individual skills development, strength and conditioning training, agility and mobility enhancement sessions, and many other valuable activities. Enjoy the top-class facilities while developing your basketball skills to their maximum! Players can join the Summer Prep program anytime from July 1 to 31, and the cost will be pro-rated.
TEAM / GROUP HOSTING DME personalizes programs and training for visiting teams/groups based on their requirements. The visiting team/group can request games, basketball training sessions, college visits, strength and conditioning sessions, touristic sightseeing and other activities related to DME and the Central Florida region. DME Sports Academy can serve professional teams and national selection teams, as well as youth and junior level players. DME's coaches will help these teams/groups to achieve their goals and provide them the most valuable possible experience.
DME INTERNATIONAL SHOWCASES DME Sports Academy showcases are held around the world, and are aimed at high school age basketball talent in the city and/or region where they take place—including, so far, London, Rome and Istanbul. The showcases are designed to: (1) Elevate players’ skill level, training intensity and focus, and basketball IQ. (2) Provide superior on-court competition and drills directed by the best coaches in the local area and the expert DME Sports Academy staff. (3) Create a destination where basketball minds from many countries come together to exchange ideas and techniques to advance the game of basketball worldwide. The ultimate goal of DME Sports Academy showcases is to identify players who are interested in attending DME Sports Academy, competing on one of our high school or postgrad teams, and eventually playing college basketball in the US.
