Adding artificial turf on six infields for the Baseball Program.
The program also received lights for all six of its fields for nighttime games.
These improvement projects remain at the forefront of IMG Academy’s mission to being a world leader in education, sports and performance. IMG Academy continues to put efforts into growth areas for student-athletes, student success and girls athletic programs.
IMG Academy is continuing the evolution of our 600-acre campus to provide best-in-class experience for our student-athletes, campers, groups, events and all of our customers. The Campus Center is being reimagined with a new multi-faceted dining experience and a new fourth residence hall will add 200 additional premium dorm rooms and multi-purpose space for teaching, learning and student activities.
