Golf Overview

Sio Academy’s baseball academy is the nation’s premier program for dedicated baseball players who want to play at the next level and perform at their peak in the classroom. While on-field development and position-specific training may consume practice time, test-prep, college placement and academic growth fulfill the time off the diamond.

Coaches with over 200 years of combined experience both competing and coaching in the collegiate and MLB arenas initiate the development as an overall athlete from day one. Inclusive of on-field baseball training, enhancement of playing time and experience through multiple teams, college recruitment exposure, and athletic growth from the strength and mental conditioning realms, the baseball academy molds student-athletes into the most sought-after athletes at college showcases and beyond.

Golf Program Structure

IMG Academy ensures that the focus of the baseball program remains on complete, individual development. Throughout the year, scouting days for both professional and college teams take place on our Florida campus along with a series of other exposure events across the country, including college tours and baseball showcases.

The baseball academy consists of multiple teams at the Varsity and Junior Varsity level, as well as post-graduate and freshmen programs. Depending on the team, competition includes national, regional and local competition. With flexibility amongst teams, players have the ability to practice multiple positions throughout the year and develop through enhanced, internal competition. Coaches focus on each student-athlete from the start of their first semester through fall working grounds, position-specific training, and even 1 on 1 coaching sessions mirroring that of an MLB instructional league at the Florida baseball academy.
