IMG Academies (IMGA) started with the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy (NBTA) in 1978. In the ’80s, Nick and his staff built the world’s most dominant tennis training academy. In 1987, the NBTA joined IMG, strengthening its international presence. In the early ’90s, IMG, Bollettieri and long-time Directors, Ted Meekma and Greg Breunich, expanded the Academy training and education philosophy from tennis to multiple sports: golf then soccer, performance training, baseball and basketball. Today, the world’s #1 multi-sport training complex for junior, collegiate, adult and professional athletes consists of the NBTA, the David Leadbetter Golf Academy, The Soccer, Baseball, Softball, Basketball and Swimming Academies, International Performance Institute (IPI), the Professional Fishing Academy, game on, Pendleton School, University of Miami, The Wellness Spa, IMGA Golf & Country Club and Academy Realty. It is known, collectively, as IMG Academies.
David Leadbetter is recognized by many as the world’s leading golf instructor. His teaching theories and methods have revolutionized the game, and his influence on all levels of golf is unparalleled.
