DAYTONA BEACH, FL. June 19, 2017/DMESports.com DME Sports Academy, a dynamic elite sports training company, announces the expansion of services with the launch of a private school. The school, the first of its kind in Volusia County, will begin August 14, 2017.

DME Sports Academy is led by a host of former professional executives and coaches, including former NBA coach Dan Panaggio, former NBA general manager Lance Blanks and former premier soccer league athlete and coach Aidan Davison.

The school will offer an innovative and cutting-edge approach in educating boys and girls in grades 6-12. Sports training will include basketball, soccer, volleyball, football and All-Star Cheerleading. Student-athletes will receive specialized training focused on agility, endurance, strength, strategy and sport-specific skill development.

“Ultimately a graduate of DME Sports Academy will be prepared to excel both on and off the court/field through the development of the whole person!” said Panaggio. “Our student-athletes will graduate with a drive to passionately tackle whatever obstacle lies before them.”

Known for expert sports training, DME Sports Academy is looking to become equally renowned for academics.  Lynette Bowman, an experienced educator and administrator, was recently named Chief Academic Administrator and will lead the cutting-edge school. “We are going to expand the scope of both traditional and classical education,” said Bowman. “Our goal is to create an exceptional school, balancing athletic training and excellence in education.”

DME Sports Academy can customize the education of its students using Florida Virtual School (FLVS) and offers NCAA compliance for all coursework. Using FLVS, DME Sports Academy provides individualized student education meeting them right where they are academically, but as a private school, can cluster students in virtual lab classes to allow for live cooperative learning opportunities.
