  • BOLLETTIERI'S FL ACADEMY TO ADD SKATING AND HOCKEY COMPLEX

              The FL-based Bollettieri Sports Academy will add a
         hockey and skating complex that will feature new facilities,
         a cafe, a full-line pro shop and seating for events.  The
         development is a project of the Bollettieri Sports Academy,
         a division of IMG, and SkateNation Inc.  SkateNation
         currently operates six other skating centers in the U.S. 
         The Bollettieri facility is scheduled to open in late spring
         '99.  It will serve as a training center for local, national
         and international figure skaters and hockey players from
         beginners through Olympic and world champions (IMG).
