Hear From Our Director

"We're training our students how to win and, more importantly, how to be better people. By bringing in top juniors and developing them into ATP/WTA touring pros and successful collegiate competitors while training champions like Kei Nishikori and Danielle Collins, 2-time NCAA singles champion, the program helps players to maximize their potential. We have the staff to uphold a 4:1 ratio while still priding ourselves on our size, as it's a big positive to have such diversity among the types of players, skills levels and cultures on our courts." - Rohan Goetzke

What People Have to Say About Our Program:

“IMG has made me mature not only on the court, but off the courts as well.  I think it’s the best place to train in the world”

"This summer, I spent 3.5 weeks at IMG, and it was a life changing event for me. My family and I live in Unteraegeri, Switzerland, but my mother grew up nearby in Sarasota. During my time at camp, the coaches gave me a lot of positive feedback. It is simply so professional, and they know what they are doing!! Due to my positive experience, I am enrolled to attend the Academy as a student-athlete as of January 2017!"

“We have been training here for 8 years, starting at the age of 6. This is our home. If we had to do it all over again, we definitely would follow the same footsteps!”
