The YPT has been invited to play in the IMG Cup, in December, at the famed IMG Academy, in Bradenton, Florida.
Bradenton is located on Florida’s Gulf Coast. The IMG Cup offers challenging competition and, perhaps more importantly, exposure to college and pro coaches and possibly US National Team staff as well. The IMG Academy is home to the US youth National Team Residency Program.
IMG Academy is a boarding school and sports training destination in Bradenton, Florida. The boarding school offers an integrated academic and athletic college preparatory experience across eight sports – baseball, basketball, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, and track & field and cross country. IMG Academy offers camp programs on a year-round basis, serves as a training and competition venue for amateur, collegiate, and professional teams, adults and families, and a host site for a variety of events, including the IMG Cup.
IMG Academy sits on 450 acres of land. The land borders IMG’s west campus, where the sports performance academy is undergoing a $198 million expansion. IMG Academy offers an Academy soccer program and is home to U.S. Soccer’s full-time Residency Program for the United States’ U-16 and U-17 men’s national teams.
A typical day for the student-athlete at Bradenton consists of academic classes in the morning followed by sports training in the afternoon. Students at the academy take accelerated courses and graduate high school a year early, making the players who do not turn pro immediately some of the most heavily recruited prospects in college soccer.
