The Advance Stage usually goes from 16 to 17 years old; however, we use age merely as a tentative guideline to place students in the correct development stage. In fact, this stage can start at 16 and go to the 'senior' years of over 21, depending on each player’s circumstances.

Our Weekly Programs are little extracts of the Annual programs the tennis academy offers, which are based on the ASC Pyramid©.

These years are very special to many players, especially the ones that have been developing more slowly. Suddenly, they start to see their potential and feel more confident about challenging opponents of any level.

As mentioned in Pre-Advanced, we continue working on the tactical pillar, with lots of match situations, starting with drills, continuing with rallies and trying to use them both in matches.

The physical and mental pillars remain crucial to leveling the 'mind and body' playing field.

General objectives of the stage

The players continue competing against opponents from any level.

They continue developing their pattern and their most succesful shots, and they also try to compensate their weakneses to avoid vulnerable areas.

On the mental side, we focus on how to deal with adversity and control high-pressure situations.

Usually, at this stage players determine if they want to pursue college tennis and/or compete on the professional tour. Players should keep in mind that many top college players do become tennis professionals after their collegiate career. This important decision must be made at this stage, because college coaches start recruiting top prospects early.

Specific objectives

Tournaments and travelling team

  • A personalized program is created to include local, regional, national and international tournaments throughout the year (The academy also hosts several international tournaments throughout the year).
  • Assistance from our coaches of the Travelling Team is offered during all these tournaments.

ASC Training System©

  • The ASC Training System© is unique in the world. Designed by Emilio Sánchez Vicario and Sergio Casal, it is based on four core pillars: technical, tactical, physical and mental.
  • Each of these four pillars is developed intensively, and each is tailored to the player’s stage, which depends on age, physical condition and tennis level. The stages are reflected in the ASC Development Pyramid©, and range from the initiation stage to the elite stage.
  • In the area of sports science, the program includes all services on site that the player may need, such as physical training, nutrition, sports psychology, and physiotherapy.
  • The ASC Training System© includes the ASC Athlete Mind System: an on-court and off-court mental coaching system with the mental and tennis coaches working together.
