How DME is setting the bar for academic & athletic excellence through on campus upgrades:
Student-athletes and their families choose DME Academy because we put them in a position to reach their ultimate potential. In addition to our roster of amazing coaches and educators, we are firm believers that our student-athletes should have access to the best facilities imaginable. As we continue to grow and make a name for ourselves on the global stage, our facilities continue to push the envelope for what an elite, multi-sport training and educational institution can be.
First things first, we’ve begun construction on a second dormitory. As we’ve grown in popularity, the demand for residential housing has increased too, (it’s not exactly ‘feasible’ for our students to commute from places like Russia, Switzerland, Turks & Caicos...you get the deal). We’re proud to share that we’re ramping things up with a new 2 story dorm that can house 84 more student-athletes bringing our total number of potential residents to 164.
Next up, we’ve started to expand our world-class field house. The 47,000 square foot structure is home to 2 full NBA courts, 5 youth courts, 7 regulation volleyball courts, a performance center, athletic training rooms and a spa...what else could we possibly want? We want more. We’re giving the fieldhouse another 25,000 square feet so we can add 2 brand new NBA regulation courts, locker rooms, meeting spaces, classrooms and study centers.
We didn’t forget about the outdoor facilities. We’re adding in a full size tuft/grass field that meets regulations for lacrosse and soccer. We recently installed outdoor lighting at our sand volleyball courts, and turf training field, to ensure that our student-athletes always have the opportunity to get their reps in, even if the sun has decided it needs some down time. Speaking of downtime, we’re adding in a new promenade with outdoor dining and recreation spaces so our student-athletes could soak up that beautiful Florida weather, while they take a break from studying and training.
“We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished to date but we are not done yet.. It’s been a pleasure helping develop so many talented student-athletes through the years. Watching the DME Academy family grow and find success has left my brother and I inspired to keep investing in our on site experience, said Dan Panaggio, CEO of the DME Academy
