About Our Program

IMG Academy houses the nation’s only full-time lacrosse residency program. Our program aims to develop the complete player by integrating indoor (box) and field lacrosse through individual instruction and team building. Our student-athletes graduate with the technical skills, game-level IQ, and the strategic awareness that is so essential to succeeding at the next level. If you’re looking to become a faster, stronger, more skilled and powerful lacrosse player, IMG Academy lacrosse is the ultimate program. To facilitate total athletic development, we offer performance training developed over the course of nearly 40 years that can integrate with sport training. Our goal is to help you reach your full potential in sport and life.

Program Structure

IMG Academy is the only high school nationally that integrates intensive box lacrosse training with field lacrosse development and competition. The system, known as DoubleCrosse, is designed to build a solid skills-based foundation in box-centered fundamentals which enable the athlete to play at a much faster pace while executing various techniques at top speed and in tight quarters. The skills, techniques, and IQ capabilities derived from such a system are manifested in a unique up-tempo transition style of play and a high-scoring read-and-react skillset.

“I owe much of my success to the innovative education and training programs at IMG Academy. My three years at IMG contributed significantly to my development as a student, athlete, lacrosse player, and as a person. I felt unbelievably prepared when I walked on campus as a Freshman and earned a starting position on the team.”

Lacrosse FAQs

  • When does lacrosse training start?

    The moment our student-athletes arrive on campus, we start the testing and evaluation process. Once an athletic and physiological baseline is determined, performance training and lacrosse training begins. The training continues throughout the school year with periodic evaluations and assessments conducted to determined growth and progress.

  • What type of schedule do you play?

    It is our intent that each of our teams will schedule the best, most difficult competition available. We believe that competition, first and foremost, is an excellent form of player and instruction/training evaluation. Of course, our teams compete to have fun and ultimately pursue excellent performance resulting in a positive outcome.

  • Do you assist your student-athletes in college recruiting?

    Yes, college recruiting and placement is an important aspect of the IMG Academy lacrosse experience as virtually all of our athlete’s desire to play competitively at the next level.

Our program has one of the highest DI placement rates in the United States.
