Global Sports and Wellbeing Collaboration aimed at providing student-athletes access to IMG Academy’s holistic sports and wellbeing curriculum


BRADENTON, Fla. (April XX, 2024)IMG Academy, the global leader in sports education, and Nord Anglia Education, the world's leading international schools organization, are launching the first phase of a revolutionary global sports and wellbeing collaboration. Beginning this summer, student-athletes in Mexico City, MX., will have the opportunity to participate in IMG Academy summer sports camps previously only held on IMG Academy’s campus in Bradenton, Fla.

The weeklong camp is for ages 12-18 and will take place at Nord Anglia’s Greengates School in Mexico City from Aug. 5-9 The sport options are basketball and soccer and will be delivered using IMG Academy’s leading sports and mental performance curriculum. The sport elements of the camps include technical training, advanced techniques, game situations and competitions, while the wellbeing element of the camps include training areas such as confidence, resilience, commitment, working under pressure, and focus. The summer camps are also open to non-Nord Anglia student-athletes throughout the region. To learn more about the camps, visit: https://www.imgacademy.com/camp-mexico.

The summer camps are just one part of the collaboration between IMG Academy and Nord Anglia Education, which provides opportunities for student-athletes globally to access IMG Academy’s world-renowned sports and wellbeing programs. The two organizations are also collaborating on an enhanced sports program for Nord Anglia's more than 80,000 students with a focus on wellbeing, resilience, confidence, teamwork, and leadership.

Representing the first sports and wellbeing collaboration of its kind for international schools, IMG Academy became Nord Anglia’s newest collaboration for students and teachers in April 2023, joining alongside world-leading institutions MIT, The Juilliard School, and UNICEF, which all provide life-changing experiences for students. 

As part of the collaboration, IMG Academy has also been actively piloting its IMG Academy+ mental performance and nutrition coaching product at Nord Anglia schools around the world. Nord Anglia is in turn working with IMG Academy to enhance and diversify IMG Academys academic curriculum, develop new staff pathways, and integrate best practice into teaching and learning for student-athletes.

IMG Academy’s holistic approach to education supports the complete student-athlete development journey through its sports-focused boarding school, sports camps, online coaching, and online college recruiting services, catering to over 100,000 student-athletes. Last year alone, IMG Academy’s on-campus and online products, NCSA College Recruiting and IMG Academy+, facilitated the placement of more than 30,000 student-athletes onto college sports rosters in the United States.

These efforts aim to solidify IMG Academy's position as a global leader in sports education, providing a holistic education both on and off the field. For more information on IMG Academy/Nord Anglia sports camps please visit: https://www.imgacademy.com/camp-mexico.
