Combining world-class sports instruction & training, elite academics and comprehensive athletic & personal development programs in a collegiate-style environment, IMG Academy instills in student-athletes the confidence and drive to face the rigors of college life.
While the high school average for sending graduates to Division I athletic programs is less than 3%, in the last four graduating classes, 60% of our student-athletes have committed to a Division I university.
... and 98% of our graduating students attend college while 2% traditionally turn pro.
No two athletes are the same, so no two training programs should be the same. At IMG Academy, we help you progress in the area in which you feel you need the most improvement. With specialized instruction and programs, low athlete-to-coach ratios and an encouraging learning environment, every athlete gets the level of attention required to improve their skill.
Campus Spirit and Fun
The motivating energy that exists on campus is something that has to be felt in person. The daily buzz of hundreds of athletes in multiple sports provides an inspiration and competitive vibe unlike anywhere in the world. Because it’s a camp, you should have fun! We offer nightly on-campus events like movie nights or trivia competitions, plus weekly off-campus trips to local beaches or amusement parks every week of the year.
From the youth stage to the professional ranks, our sport instructors have experience coaching at every level. Each sport coaching staff also includes position- or technique- specific specialists who deliver expert instruction in their area of focus. Also, with renowned specialists in strength training, speed training, mental conditioning, nutrition, communication, vision and college planning and placement, the full IMG Academy staff represents nthe most knowledgeable and successful in the industry.
Last year alone, athletes from more than 80 nations trained at IMG Academy, creating an inspiring environment that promotes understanding and learning of new cultures and languages. It’s not uncommon for our campers to make lifelong friends from all around the world.
The Tampa Bay area averages approximately 260 days of sunshine per year. Our nearby beaches are annually honored as some of the best in the world. IMG Academy is the ideal year-round training location.
Imagine strolling through campus and seeing a Grand Slam-winning tennis player, a Heisman Trophy-winning football player, an NBA All-Star, or a Major League MVP training at the same facilities as yourself and in full view. For more than 30 years, IMG Academy has had a hand in building champions, and many of them train here seasonally and in between competition to maintain their peak form.
