We provide access to college coaches and recruiting guidance.

All student-athletes should have equal access to college coaches. We created the world’s largest college recruiting platform, used by 40,000 college coaches, so every athlete can connect directly with college coaches and get discovered.  

Our college search tool helps you find opportunities in every college across the country. The NCSA platform has a data-driven approach to matching you to schools where you have the best chances at getting recruited – ones you didn’t even know were out there.

Maximize your potential on a platform built for student athletes.

We are innovating at the intersection of athletic and academic development.

To us, being a student-athlete is more than just the wins and losses. It starts from within. Teamwork, leadership, discipline, confidence, taking risks, learning from failures – We apply these lessons to all aspects of our education platforms to help maximize potential, both on and off the field. 

Our unique, holistic approach offers:  

We’re a diverse, global team united by our belief in the power of sport.

Our talented team is inspiring future generations through sports.

Student-athletes must undergo a journey of self-discovery – we know from personal experience. Our team of former college and professional athletes and coaches are there to give you the confidence to shape your own path. We mentor you and show you how to maximize our platform, so you can focus on your athletic and academic goals.  

As part of IMG Academy, we are committed to equality, democracy, inclusion and sustainability. We’re proud of our diversity, and we seek to provide opportunities to individuals from all backgrounds.
