The New Melle Viking Elite Baseball and Softball Academy is a joint effort between the Viking Elite Sports Academy and New Melle Sports and Recreation. The combination of community involvement, priority access to indoor training facilities, and field privileges gives our players, coaches, and families a truly unique and affordable player experience.
