Whether it be in studies, in the game, or in training during a global pandemic – consistency is key. Now more than ever, we've recognized the importance of maintaining a strong routine and developing an even greater sense of community to ensure our student-athletes are undoubtedly set up for success.
The health and safety of our student-athletes, staff, faculty, and campus guests is our number one priority. Despite all variables, IMG Academy will continue to pursue the utmost level of excellence in academics, athletic training, competition, and beyond. Whether it be streaming and digital communication with college recruiters, or an increased emphasis on internal competition, innovation is at the forefront of our Bradenton, Florida campus.
