As part of our continual drive to provide the HKGTA community with access to the ultimate in sporting excellence, we are thrilled to announce our exciting new partnership with the world’s most prestigious sports, performance and educational institution, IMG Academy (IMGA).
Established in 1978, IMGA sets the standard for academic, athletic and personal development in athletes worldwide, running sports camps and a globally-renowned boarding school in Florida. This sensational collaboration between HKGTA and IMGA will not only enhance our adult and junior sporting programme at all levels, but also focus particularly on the growth of our junior patrons, helping us to build our legacy of sporting excellence for the next generation.
A few highlights of our partnership include:
We will soon announce scheduling for several exciting IMGA sports clinics held at HKGTA; these include golf, tennis, track and field, basketball, baseball, lacrosse, football and athletics, as well as dedicated personal development clinics, offering a holistic approach to sporting achievement.
IMGA will be extending eligibility for their celebrated sports camps to HKGTA patrons, enabling our junior players to gain access to these highly coveted programmes. There will also be a range of special benefits on offer to patrons joining IMGA’s youth and adult camps, with further details to follow.
HKGTA junior players will also have the opportunity to be reviewed by IMGA’s expert coaches, leading to the possibility for the most promising athletes to apply to the IMG Academy programme for a full academic year. (Please note that any successful applications will be subject to IMGA standard fees at patrons’ own cost.)
Finally, IMGA invite all HKGTA junior players to attend additional English classes while honing their sporting expertise – a value-added benefit that will help to balance the competing sporting and academic priorities that many budding sportspeople can face.
