• Spring Training in Florida

      Open to ALL Ontario High School Students!

      Take your athletic training to the next level as you head down to the IMG Academy this March Break. Spend a week at this world-class facility equipped with 20+ multi-sport fields, 50+ tennis courts, a 5,000-seat state-of-the-art stadium, an 18-hole golf course, and two 10,000+ square foot weight rooms.

      Train for two hours everyday in the sport of your choice. Choose to specialize in rugby, baseball, football, soccer, golf, or tennis. Enhance your performance further with weight room training and by creating a personal nutrition plan to follow.

      Take in some action and fun as you head over to Dunedin and watch a Toronto Blue Jays spring training game. Then enjoy a relaxing day at the famous Siesta Key Beach. Be sure to keep an eye out for professional athletes training on site as many NFL, MLB, and MLS stars train at the IMG Academy during their off-season!
