The evolution of sports-focused education has increased its appeal amongst College coaches and Professional scouts. A deepened focus on a holistic approach to personal development has changed the recruiting landscape by preparing high level student-athletes to succeed at the next level. This developing model has produced some of the most recognizable student-athletes in today’s sports. While combining a purposefully academic schedule with a concentration on athletic preparation, student-athletes will now attain the utensils to achieve their personal goals. They will also possess a favorable appeal to all collegiate and professional levels.  The experiences and resources that academies provide, will only ensure a greater athlete experience, a pathway towards college eligibility and acceptance while also cultivating personal development. 

As the new Director of Athletics and former Director of Soccer, Todd Eason looks to implement a platform within the athletic department that has proven success. The Men’s and Women’s soccer teams have gained recognition on and off the field with the influences that Mr. Eason has implemented. The approach that Eason uses incorporates transparency, accountability and consistency, while facing extreme daily challenges. These three pillars have helped players establish sustained success while creating habits towards personal growth. Holding student-athletes to a higher standard off the playing court/field has allowed individuals to understand the importance of personal values and discipline. Furthermore, Eason’s commitment towards consistency throughout this process has shown his own discipline in valuing person over athlete.  

With an understanding and experience in all levels of soccer, Eason’s team culture has provided various paths for his student-athletes and is now the foundation which he leads. His new role as Athletic Director will now provide him the opportunity to share his philosophy across the department and help influence a school identity that will help all programs find success.

Daytona Ice Arena did a trial run of the Take A Shot At Hockey Program at the Daytona Ice Arena on Saturday, September 29th for elementary and middle school students before the program goes public.

The Take A Shot at Hockey Program is designed to introduce students to skating and the sport of hockey by giving them the opportunity to put on full gear and get a real feel for the game on the ice! Kids of the ages of 8-13 showed up at 11:30 am for registration and hit the ice at 12:30 pm.

With many kids first time on the ice, the Daytona Ice Arena coaches helped them learn the fundamentals on the ice and then incorporated hockey rules, equipment, and drills throughout the workout.

“We want to introduce kids to the sport, ice hockey with educating them through the program and give them a feel for the game by keeping them active, by promoting healthy competition and long-term wellness,” Justin Cirillo, the Director of Program Marketing & Sponsorship, said during the event.

The program will be rolled out to elementary schools in both Volusia and Flagler counties. The DIA can also tailor the event to include a STEM session along with the Take a Shot at Hockey Program. Interested? Contact
