What does IMG Academy look for in a student-athlete?
IMG Academy looks for student-athletes who have strong commitment to academics, athletics and personal growth.
Student-athletes must be diligent in their school, sport community duties, with a willingess to give their all in each area.
Is the Admissions process competitive?
Absolutely. Each sport has a predetermined number of spaces available and IMG Academy classes are capped to maintain low student-to-teacher ratios.
How good do I have to be at my sport?
While each IMG Academy sport has different qualifications for participation, all of our sport programs share a common denominator in that athletic performance is not the determining frequently asked questions factor in acceptance. Most importantly, all prospective student-athletes are required to have a passion for their sport and a motivation to reach their full potential.
What is the minimum age?
It varies by sport: Baseball (age 13), Basketball (13), Football (13), Golf (8 for non-boarding, 12 for boarding), Lacrosse (12), Soccer (11 for non-boarding, 12 for boarding), Tennis (8 for non-boarding, 12 for boarding), Track and Field (13), and Performance (12).
What if a student-athlete gets injured?
If an injury occurs that keeps a student-athlete away from normal training and participation, they are transferred into the Injured Athlete Program (IAP). IAP places the injured student-athlete into the Athletic and Personal Development program, which will allow them to seamlessly transition back into their sport after rehabilitation and receiving a medial release from participation.
