We believe in promoting an environment that fosters camaraderie among student-athletes, between student-athletes and staff, and between student-athletes and the community. In doing so, we take full advantage of our premiere location. From sandy beaches to theme parks and professional sporting arenas, our student-athletes have access to a variety of activities on and off campus.
Our student-athletes have access to an outdoor pool, student lounges, movie nights, and special events like home football games, holiday celebrations, homecoming, prom, and more.

Our dedicated events staff works with our campus life team and student ambassadors to host a variety of special events all year along. We kick off the year with our annual “Welcome Back” party that welcomes student-athletes to campus. As the year continues, we host several high school football games that unite our student-athletes as they support their home team.
Student-athletes are also encouraged to attend special events like Homecoming, Prom, and holiday celebrations. Balance is key. Our student-athletes value variety, and we provide it.
On-campus activities and events include: Campfire Nights, Homecoming, Hip-Hop Dance and Salsa Classes, Flag Football, Block Parties, Dodgeball Tournaments, Welcome Back Bash, Talent Shows, Movie Nights, Prom, Ice Cream Socials, and Holiday Celebrations.
Off-campus trips and excursions include: Local Beaches, NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers games, Disney World and Universal Studios theme parks, NBA Orlando Magic games, Bowling, Busch Gardens, Kayaking/Canoeing, MLB Tampa Bay Rays games, Airheads Trampoline Park, and trips to local shopping centers and mall (weekly).
Student-athletes have 24/7 access to the IMG Academy Health Services Center, which provides the care of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital (JHACH) right from the Bradenton campus. All IMG Academy on-staff nurses are affiliated with JHACH and are available to provide compassionate care for our student-athletes along with medical attention for any health concern that may arise.
Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital (JHACH), regarded by U.S. News & World Report as 2016’s ‘Best Children’s Hospital,’ provide sports medicine and general health care for the IMG Academy community inside the Campus Center.
Health Services can also distribute prescription medication at pre-designated times to ensure safe and proper medical treatment. Our student-athletes can also schedule on-campus appointments with our medical providers, or we can provide transportation to off-campus medical appointments, if needed.
The IMG Academy Campus Life staff manages our residence halls. House Parents oversee our student-athletes in the residence halls and manage their daily activities and events.
We assign two House Parents per floor to promote a safe atmosphere for our student-athletes. We also appoint student-athlete resident leaders and additional on-call House Parents to maintain the overall safety and security of our residence halls. This presence of residence life staff, coaches, educators and adult mentors throughout our facility helps maintain a low student to adult ratio, which ensures the safety of our student-athletes.
CAMPUS SAFETY TEAM
The safety of IMG Academy staff, student-athletes and guests is our top priority. As we continue to enhance and expand our campus, we ensure that our campus safety and security efforts grow in step.
Our Campus Safety team oversees the 500-acre campus around the clock to promote a safe environment for our residents. The Campus Safety team staffs security checkpoints at every campus entrance and exit, and it provides ongoing safety patrol throughout the campus.
