Welcome to

New Melle Viking Elite

Baseball & Softball Academy

Our Mission

To serve the greater New Melle, Defiance, Foristell, Weldon Springs, O’Fallon, Wentzville, Lake St. Louis recreation, youth baseball and softball community, providing fundamental instructional training, foundational coaching skills, a positive learning environment, and a team sports-centered atmosphere.
The New Melle Viking Elite Baseball and Softball Academy is a non-profit organization built on the premise of learning and love of the game at an early age. This is done without a heavy financial commitment, minimal travel expectations, and a path to grow into increased player development and competitive team play.

Why Join Viking Elite?

As Viking Elite makes its home at New Melle Sports & Rec (NMSR), we look forward to the partnership and a mutually rewarding outcome for our community. Viking Elite will provide a cost-effective training and development program each winter, bridging the gap between fall ball and spring play.

Our Story

New Melle has a proud heritage for both baseball and softball. Many of our community members have played on the fields at New Melle Sports and Rec (NMSR). We have had elite baseball and softball players reach both collegiate and professional ranks in many different fashions. The pride of our athletic community has had a profound impact on local high school programs, colleges, and coaching in the region. We want to restore that pride with a foundational youth baseball and softball program based at NMSR.

The NMSR Giveback

Our partnership with NMSR extends beyond the Horizon League. We believe that pouring into our community will create a generational impact on those who play sports at NMSR.

  • Facility improvements
  • Fieldwork days – parents/players participating in field and facility workdays
  • Equipment and fundraising activities – corporate sponsorship
  • Parent Volunteerism – concessions – board members – team management
  • Tournaments and Fall – league hosting and sponsorship

We believe that pouring into our community pays dividends for years to come and each generation that plays at NMSR.
