With Two New Fields on the Horizon, DME Has Its Sights Set on Impressive Growth in 2022.
We’re only three months into 2022 and DME already has some big goals.
Coming soon to campus is a brand new field. But this won’t be your standard, run-of-the-mill, athletic field. DME is doing it bigger and better than ever.
With an expected opening of July 2022, DME has broken ground on a 30,000 square foot, climate-controlled covered turf field. It will also have LED lighting, perfect for those early mornings and late-night practices and games!
The new field won’t only play host to an indoor turf area, but it will also include batting and pitching cages and will be home to indoor soccer, baseball, and sports performance programming.
“We have high expectations for what our campus can offer to our student-athletes. This includes making sure they have access to the most elite facilities. Speaking from a personal perspective, I’m excited about the impact this will have on our soccer program and the doors it will open for our players.” says Todd Eason, DME’s Director of Soccer.
In addition, a full-size outdoor turf field is also in the works with an expected completion date in the Fall of 2022. At an impressive size of 120 yards long, the field will increase the amount of usable space on campus for soccer, lacrosse, and football. It will also include lights surrounding the perimeter of the field for nighttime use.
When asked about how this will impact the growth at DME, Dan Pannagio, co-founder of DME, said, “This expansion gives us a lot of opportunities to grow. With the addition of two fields, we can serve more student-athletes and help more talented young people take their talent to the next level. We have big plans for DME Academy, and this is just the beginning!”
If you thought growth at DME has plans to slow down, buckle up because we’re just getting started!
