February 18, 2024

Are you ready to take your game to the next level? Look no further because the DME Academy Elite Academy Tryouts are just around the corner. We are seeking committed & passionate athletes who are looking to showcase their skills on a National stage.

Mark your calendars for March 22nd and 24th and April 26th and 28th for an opportunity to make the squad at DME. Hosted at the Tatum Ridge Fields, these tryouts promise to be the gateway to playing for an Academy that goes well beyond your average “club soccer program”.

With year-round play, one international trip per year (Italy/March 25), access to DME Academy, Daytona (recruiting, relationships & showcases), top coaches, and off-field programs that include DME FIT (speed, agility, balance), Evolving Athletes (mindset performance), and mandatory film review training sessions – we provide athletes a pathway to the next level. Additionally, we partner with St. Charles FC, a fellow EA club and USL club that offers DME athletes guest playing opportunities in the USL Academy Cup. We also participate in between 6-9 tournaments per year for added competition.
