Private School Program

Tennis instruction at the IMG Academy Bollettieri Tennis program provides a solid foundation for the pursuit of success. The Bollettieri Tennis program sets the standard by which all tennis academies are measured. A pioneer in the industry, our tennis program has developed champions at every level of the game.

By pairing elite academics with world-class tennis instruction and athletic training, IMG Academy has established itself as a premier school for preparing student-athletes for their next step in life. However, academic enrichment and athletic skill development – though critically important – represent only a portion of the training that IMG Academy student-athletes receive. We instill the confidence that allows our student-athletes to aspire for anything that their mind can imagine, while providing the tools to help them reach those goals.

Athletics

tennis instructionThe IMG Academy Bollettieri Tennis program sets the standard by which all tennis academies are measured.  A pioneer in the industry, our tennis program has developed champions at every level of the game and continues to produce complete players who have the technical, tactical, physical and mental skill to dominate the competition in any setting.

The program is guided by the iconic Nick Bollettieri, who still spends his days on the courts working with IMG Academy student-athletes, and led by Director Rohan Goetzke. IMG Academy’s world-class tennis instruction, facilities and teaching methodologies help solidify its reputation as the global leader in tennis training.

Tennis students are split into two sessions-morning or afternoon-with students in both receiving multiple hours of on-court training per day that includes match-simulation drills and match play.  Students are then split into teams, led by our most senior and respected coaches, where they will train daily and compete against other student-athletes of similar ability.

Off the court, all student-athletes utilize the cutting-edge “Mission Room” for video analysis of their play and technique to enhance their match play skill and learn proper shot combinations to minimize open-court opportunities for the opponent.
