The IMG Academy football (soccer) team arrived on Grand Cayman May 4, 2015 via Cayman Airways’ nonstop flight from Tampa, Florida. The team will be competing in the second annual Cayman Airways Invitational Youth Cup tournament taking place May 5-10, 2015.
“It’s cool to have the opportunity again to go back there,” said Ryan Hargis, IMG Academy Midfielder. “We were there last year and it was a lot of fun. Beside the games, I really enjoyed swimming with the stingrays. My team and I hope to do well again at the Cayman Youth Cup and hope we can make this event again next year.”
