• Spring Training in Florida


      Open to ALL Ontario High School Students!

      Spend March Break outdoors at a spring training experience at the IMG Academy, focusing on the sport of your choice: Baseball, Football, Soccer, Rugby, Tennis or Golf. Located an hour south of Tampa Bay, Bradenton Florida is home to the IMG Academy, the premier sporting academy in the world. Founded in 1978 by legendary tennis coach Nick Bolletteri, the IMG Academy was the first full time tennis boarding school, providing young athletes with the opportunity to train at a higher level while pursing their academic aspirations. The IMG Academy is now a multi-sport training destination that has hosted, trained and taught some of the world’s top athletes. 
       
      During your week at the IMG Academy, you will be exposed to the forefront of high school athletic excellence. While you will be earning your Recreation and Healthy Active Living Leadership (PLF4M) Credit, your main focus will be on athletic development as you will have a minimum of 2 hours per day in field, focusing on your sport of choice at the IMG Academy. In addition to your infield training, you will also receive 2 sessions of IMG Academy Coaching from a trained staff member, a personalized weight and nutrition plan and a weight room session each day at the academy. When you are not working on your game or pushing your self to the limit, you will be taking in a Toronto Blue Jays Spring Training Baseball game or spending time at the beach.
