ROY BOVA - Founder/CEO

Roy, an avid sports fan and athlete himself, is the founder and CEO of Class Athlete, Inc., creating the youth sports organization 12 years ago, attempting to create an outlet in the Casselberry/Winter Springs/Oviedo community for positivity, family, academics and athletics.   Most know him as a passionate fan who loves his Pittsburgh Steelers.

His dream was realized in the first season back in 2008, with 59 student athletes competing in flag football, and 6 cheerleaders including his own daughter, who was 7 at the time.   Soccer was then introduced as well as basketball and followed by indoor soccer, summer camps, an after school program and 3v3 soccer.

12 years later, Roy now enjoys the sight of seasons that hover around 1,000 student athletes, with thousands of family and friends joining him every Saturday to give our athletes a safe and positive place to learn and have fun.  Class Athlete has also run summer camps for the last 8 years and recently introduced it’s first after school program in August of 2016. 

He has coached over roughly 150 teams and about 1500 student athletes over the last 12 years in soccer, flag football, and basketball.

He continues to strive toward his ultimate goal of having a facility in Seminole County where student athletes can come to learn, be tutored, do homework and then play sports in a safe, fun and positive environment.  A place where parents can enjoy physical activity and their own sports while their child is practicing and playing themselves.

Over the last 12 years, he has watched his daughter, who is now 19 years old, blossom into an excellent soccer player and an even better person.  She now works for Class Athlete, attends Seminole State and has completed her CNA course to become a Certified Nurse Assistant.  She also helps coach and teach the younger age groups.  He hopes to one day hand the reins of this blossoming business to her.
