DME Continues its Expansion into New Sports

Daytona Beach, Florida, May 4, 2021  - DME Academy, one of the nation’s top multi-sport training and educational institutions for aspiring student- athletes, announced it was expanding its sports focus to include soccer. The new soccer division will offer athletes a variety of program options including personal and group training, camps & clinics, tournament teams, academy programs and even club services including operation optimization efforts, coaching development and more. 

“At DME we’re in the business of helping student-athletes reach their own personal levels of excellence and we’re excited to extend our impact into the soccer community ,” said Dan Panaggio, co-owner of DME Academy.”

Leading the charge in developing the soccer division is Director of Soccer Todd Eason and Assistant Director of Soccer Kioki Hutching. Their goal is to develop all areas of an individual player’s game: technical, tactical, physical and psychological. Built on Coach Hutching’s international playing experience in England and Spain and Coach Eason’s success in developing USL League Two into a top-level league, DME’s soccer division is poised to have long-lasting effects on the soccer world at-large. Coach Eason is looking forward to the challenge of shaping the future of the sport in America, on and off the field. 

“When I had the opportunity to work with DME to build this program, I didn’t hesitate for a second,” Eason said. “Their commitment to making an impact in the youth soccer community is contagious, and I’m looking forward to providing the platform for soccer athletes at DME.”

The DME campus features access to professional-level fields and facilities, and on-site soccer camps beginning this June. Learn more about all the upcoming soccer programs, including the dates, times, locations here.
