The International Manresa Basketball Academy (IMBA) is a private academy of professional and personal development for basketball players, both men and women.
It is a joint venture between the ACB League Basketball Team, Bàsquet Manresa, and the university centre Fundació Universitària del Bages which focuses both on high sports performance and academic education to help young players to develop to the point where they have the chance to play in professional basketball leagues all over the world.
Our programmes allow players not only to access high performance basketball training but also specific training on entrepreneurship or in professions connected to the sports field such as coaching, being a sports agent or a sports director.
