Student-Athlete Success

Gabby A. (Class of 2022)

There's a difference between being ready and being prepared for the next level. Gabby, IMG Academy graduate and Harvard commit, and her mother, Celia, reflect on how the experiences, relationships, and growth opportunities available on campus have prepared her for her next steps in Boston. "I just think IMG grew her up a little bit. She was able to be exposed to a different level, a different standard of excellence. I just feel like the values here at IMG match what we have in our home… it was just nice to find a place who mirrored what I taught in my home.”

Michelle & Lexie C. (Class of 2020 & 2022)

While reflecting on their time at IMG with their mother, Michelle, these sisters both experienced life-changing opportunities, created lifelong relationships, and felt undeniable support from the diverse community within the Academy.

No matter how many practice drives you take or how many rounds you have played, there's no substitute for a strong mental game.

Throwing Away the Limits: Kosi Umerah | IMG Academy Track & Field

An athlete can be talented, but that can only take you so far.

Her mindset and confidence have been crucial to her success, and IMG mental Coach Markus Hawkins has played a key role in her journey.

Reflecting on His Journey: Top Nidunjianzan | IMG Academy Tennis

Top ventured from Tibet, China to Bradenton, FL as a young tennis player knowing minimal English. Eight years later, and he's preparing to head to Princeton University while exuding the confidence and preparation that IMG's tennis coaches, ESL teachers, and staff instilled in him throughout his experience on campus. Even before he was competing in ATP or high-level ITF tournaments, his father told him that his main focus should be on academics, as that would ultimately impact his success on the court. Looking back at his advice, Top now understands that his dedication in the classroom has guided him to reach this point. Hear from Top as well as his coach and English teacher about his journey at IMG.
