Daytona Tortugas Education Programs

The Daytona Tortugas pride themselves on building robust partnerships with local schools and have established a formal partnership with Volusia County Schools.

Education Day

The Tortugas host a fun-filled, educational field trip for elementary and middle school students -- each year at Jackie Robinson Ballpark. The Tortugas compile educational lessons about topics including the history and significance of Jackie Robinson in Daytona Beach as well as reading, writing and math skills. Local educational organizations such as the Museum of Arts & Sciences, Marine Science Center and Central Florida Zoo are invited to provide interactive displays for the students to add to the experience.

Summer Splash Days

The Tortugas provide all Volusia County elementary school Extended Day Enrichment Programs with the opportunity to combine a baseball game with summer camp activities.

Teacher Appreciation Night

The Tortugas celebrate and honor local teachers at a game each year. The Tortugas provide two free tickets and on-field recognition for Volusia County Schools Teachers of the Year, discounted tickets for all other teachers and postgame fireworks.

Summer Reading Program

The Summer Home Run Reading Challenge presented by Shelldon and the Superintendent: This voluntary program encourages elementary and middle school students across the district to read throughout the summer. The program’s goal is to help local students read 1 million minutes. Incentives for students include a ticket to a Tortugas game as well as prizes from local businesses.

High School Ambassadors Program

High school students from across Volusia County apply each year to be selected for this prestigious program, which offers participants the opportunity to explore careers in the sports and entertainment business. Ambassadors meet regularly with Tortugas staff and also gain professional experience by creating and executing real-world projects with the Tortugas organization. Applications for 2022 are available now!
