SLAM: Relentless - The IMG Academy Difference | Episode 1: A Culture of Excellence - Presented by Under Armour
When you think relentless, what comes to mind? Someone who won't give up on a dream, no matter how far out of reach it is; a consistently passionate individual; a force that just can't seem to be knocked down. Some of the world's most successful athletes have been described as relentless, so doesn't it just make sense to describe IMG Academy in the same light?
The National basketball team at IMG isn't just relentless, they're unrelenting. They won't take their foot off the gas until they've not only achieved but surpassed their goals. And, those goals aren't just individual either. In fact, this team is more focused on each other than on themselves, and that leads to improvement and an undeniable bond that just cannot be replicated elsewhere.
Could that be the secret ingredient to their success? In this SLAM episode presented by Under Armour, Head Coach Sean McAloon said that some of the key qualities he looks for are student-athletes who aren't solely focused on putting themselves and their individual fame first. Also included in this video is an inside look at the reasons why some of the nation's top players, including Tamar Bates, Moussa Diabate, Jaden Bradley, Eric Dailey Jr., and Jarace Walker, are so locked in on this Bradenton, Florida campus.
Have a look for yourself at just what makes IMG Academy so unique, and decide for yourself if this is actually the best basketball program in the world.
As you'll notice in the video, IMG Academy Basketball Director, Brian Nash, notes that the program is focused on being a developmental academy. That said, there's certainly a share of student-athletes who have been drafted into the NBA, while many others are focused on gaining offers to D1, D2, and D3 programs across the country. Many individuals enter the program as a top recruit while others enroll to gain experience, strength, and connections unlike anywhere else. When you have a goal in mind, IMG Academy's coaches, teachers, staff, and even teammates and peers won't let you lose sight of those dreams.
