Girls Lacrosse Program

Girls Lacrosse Academy Overview

IMG Academy girls lacrosse academy prepares athletes to compete and excel at the next level through innovative and effective training. Built upon methodologies established by a coaching staff with college recruitment experience from every level, our student-athletes train daily to attain their goals and fulfill their highest potential. Amplifying academic success as much as strengthening a schedule of nationwide opponents, the girls lacrosse academy acknowledges that achievements should be claimed both in the classroom and on the field. By developing the skills, technique, athletic performance and lacrosse IQ of our players, they’re a step ahead when they reach the next level.

Girls Lacrosse Program Structure

Our hybrid approach builds dynamic student-athletes who can move the ball better and faster and thrive in high-pressure situations. The combination of field lacrosse development with box lacrosse training establishes better stick-handling, quicker reaction times, both mentally and physically, and a faster and more effective transition style. IMG Academy's girls lacrosse academy gears up for the most intensive schedule of nationally-credited opponents. With a structure designed to build out a stable foundation from the start, the IMG Academy girls lacrosse academy provides an ideal system to position athletes for their next-steps.

Through the IMG Academy program as a whole, girls are not only supported from within their sport, but also as individuals among the entire community. With social engagements and school-wide activities built into weekly schedules, girls are learning to improve their game while becoming more independent and challenged as young women. Through various academic clubs geared towards every interest-level to the glitz of school dances to those outings during evening downtime, girls credit their preparedness for the upcoming collegiate level to their experiences as an IMG Academy student-athlete.

Athletic and Personal Development Integration (APD)

The APD Department inside the Performance Center seeks to build women of character and strength while working towards providing girls lacrosse with the assets needed to grow both as students and as athletes. Programs like empowering female athletes and mindfulness target topics such as being present and centering oneself, building confidence, eliminating the distractions of society, and even ways to be stronger as individuals. Sport-specific coaches develop strength and conditioning training plans, nutritional guides, leadership programming, and mental toughness sessions to align directly with what the girls lacrosse academy players need for their overall wellness and success.

Four years ago when I went to camp at IMG Academy for the first time, I knew I wanted to go to school here. When the girls lacrosse program started, I was beyond excited knowing that it was the perfect school to prepare me for the next level in lacrosse. I love the coaching and the combination of academics and athletics. It is the best place to be to create your game.
