The Formation Stage usually goes from 13 to 14 years old; however, we use age merely as a tentative guideline to place students in the correct development stage.
Our Weekly Programs are little extracts of the Annual programs the tennis academy offers, which are based on the ES Academy Pyramid©.
During this stage, players should be able to have total control of their body, high accuracy of their shots, and be able to correctly adjust the appropriate height, depth and distance of their shots. Therefore, they are training mainly the tactical, physical and mental aspects of competition.

Players will learn how to play in offensive and defensive situations, improve decision making skills, find solutions on their own, set up goals for daily training and matches, manage emotions, and analyze matches to identify what worked well and what didn’t.
Players should participate in tournaments regularly, including ITF tournaments. ES Academy will recommend local, regional and international tournaments to attend, and assign coaches to accompany the players.
