What Our Campers Say

After spending three intense weeks working on my game, I came home ready for my season as a stronger, faster and more confident player. My coach recognized my improvement and moved me up from JV to Varsity!

Matt B., 2018 Camper

Coming to IMG for three weeks changed my soccer game forever. The skills my coaches taught me are ones that have helped me become the college soccer player I am today.

Brian H., 2018 Camper

My passion is soccer, and I chose IMG to improve my game. I learned so many new techniques in only one week of training. The campus is amazing and I met lots of friends. I'm only 11, but my dream would be to live on campus and attend IMG as a student-athlete.

Charlie C., 2018 Camper
