Passion makes them athletes;
we make them champions.
In 1978, tennis legend Nick Bollettieri created a revolutionary tennis academy that allowed student-athletes to discover their ultimate potential through expert athletic training, and prepared them for success in all aspects of life through a college-preparatory education.
His vision ultimately evolved into IMG Academy, now a world leader in integrated academics, athletics and personal development. Our student-athletes go on to attend some of the world's most prestigious universities and stake their claim as some of the top athletes across the globe.

|2012||Nagoya-Shi, Japan||Louisiana State University|
|Rina Hill left her home in Japan to study basketball at IMG Academy. She graduated in 2012 and enrolled at the Louisiana State University, where she helped lead the Lady Tigers to a berth in the 2014 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament after upsetting West Virginia. But Hill’s goals stretch beyond college or even the WBNA; she’s preparing for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Her goal is to increase the popularity of basketball in Japan by leading her country’s team to victory. "One of the reasons why basketball is not popular in Japan is they're not winning any championships or any medals," Rina said. "So we have got to do something in that Olympics, we have got to finish in the top five."|
