About Our Program

In the IMG Academy Boys Basketball program, our coaches use a multi-phased teaching approach that focuses on position-specific instruction, player evaluation and a rigorous competition schedule with one goal in mind: to help every player reach their true potential. Our basketball training is based on a solid understanding of the game’s fundamentals. Focusing on the individual player, student-athletes receive a mixture of personalized, position-specific instruction that focuses on technical skill development and guided game-situational play against other IMG players. Our innovative program promotes athletic progression and taps into the expertise of our world-class coaching staff to give our players the chance to train like a champion and compete anywhere.

Program Structure

With teams at the post-graduate, varsity, junior varsity and middle school levels – and a unique developmental approach to each – the IMG Academy basketball program provides the nation’s most effective training environment. Upperclassmen and post-graduates experience intensive, position-specific instruction that replicates how collegiate programs operate. Underclassmen and middle school student-athletes experience a training methodology focused more on development and foundation-setting for continued growth.

This training is forged through repetition and applied through local, regional and national competition. Ultimately, student-athletes become some of the most sought-after recruits for all levels of basketball, as IMG Academy has developed a deserved reputation for graduating skilled and mature student-athletes ready to succeed in college.

    • 7:30 – 9 p.m.: Study hall

  • How do student-athletes develop off the court?

    Each student-athlete receives a customized performance plan to build holistic development. This includes strength, agility, nutrition, leadership, mindset and vision training, which leads to more dominant players on the court.

  • How many games will the student-athlete play?

    Each team averages 55-60 games per year throughout the course of pre-season, game season, and spring club season.

  • What is the breakdown of the program in terms of diversity (i.e. U.S. students vs. International)?

    The basketball program closely matches the overall IMG Academy student body with about 50% U.S. students and 50% international, which creates an ideal environment to learn new cultures and languages as another introduction to university life.

  • What percentage of graduating players go on to play college basketball?

    From 2010-2016, an average between 80-85% of our student-athletes receive opportunities to play college basketball. Of the 15-20% that do not play in college, most chose to return to their home country and play at the club level, participate as D-I walk-ons, or pursue coaching avenues. Every student-athlete works with our coaches and College Planning and Placement department to maximize college recruiting opportunities and find the ideal situation for each student-athlete based on skill, personality and academic/athletic goals.
