What Our Campers Say

I just wanted to thank you again for a truly memorable experience for my daughter. The combination of the (a) on-court experience that she gained through her training with the basketball coaches and (b) off-court insight that she gained from her lessons with the leadership/vision/nutrition coaches have inspired her beyond my wildest expectations. It was a life-changing experience for her. She left the camp with an even greater love of the sport, and a greater understanding of recognizing one’s potential and the commitment that is required to achieve that potential

Modern Sleepaway

Year-round performance and world-class amenities

While youth athletes need time to rest, recover, and rejuvenate both physically and mentally, elite girls basketball players know that champions are made in the off-season. IMG Academy’s girls basketball camps give young athletes the chance to make a full commitment and get the most out of the off-season.

We offer both day and overnight summer girls basketball camps year round as well as special rates for teams and groups who want to book together. Sleepaway basketball camp gives young athletes the opportunity to board in Ascender Residence Halls with access to campus amenities 24/7 and a full team of residential mentors. This ensures campers get both the training and the rest they need.

Off-Campus Campers Welcome Too

A perfect option for local girls basketball campers or for families on vacation in the Sarasota and Bradenton area, many on and off-campus housing options are available for adults and families, including the Legacy Hotel, The Lodge, The Villas, Academy Park Villas, Ritz-Carlton, Holiday Inn Express and Suites and more, including beach-front resorts.

Enhance Your Camp

Florida’s premier theme parks and attractions are located just minutes away from IMG Academy.

Youth girls basketball campers can take advantage of our chaperoned, off-campus excursions and visit some of the best excursions the state has to offer. Trips include Busch Gardens, Disney's Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios Orlando, and The Tampa Bay Rays.

FAQ

Girls Basketball Camps

  • What do the camps offer?

    Our basketball training camps are skill development camps to improve elements like ball handling, shooting, defense, passing and overall game situational performance. Those learned skills are then applied to guided scrimmages to balance skill work and game play.

  • Do college scouts or coaches attend the camps?

    While coaches are frequently on campus to scout our boarding school student-athletes, they don’t come specifically for our camp programs. If you are attending a showcase, our youth camps serve as a great tune-up to prepare and be at the top of your game.

  • What is the skill level requirement?

    Our camps are ideal for players of all skill levels. Groups are divided by age and skill level, which are flexible and allow for shifts to find the best for each camper. We offer personalized instruction that allows campers to improve specifically in the areas they need, whether they are new to the game or highly skilled.

  • Will I play games while I’m here?

    Our camps are focused specifically on skill training specifically and implementing those acquired skills into game play. All camps offer intra-camp scrimmaging, with our 5-week league also including, 5-7 games against outside competition or scrimmages against the other teams in the league camp. In addition, an optional evening session provides the opportunity for some pickup games.
