The Initiation Stage usually goes from 10 to 12 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©.
Prior to arriving at this stage, our players have been polishing their strokes, agility, balance and coordination. Now, they learn how to place the ball intentionally and position themselves properly on the court.
Private tennis sessions 5h. / week
Players are ready to develop more dynamic movements, and drills become more challenging.
They start cooperating and rallying with a partner, and they are encouraged to play at least 1 tournament per month.
They should know how to keep track of the score and know the basic rules of tennis.
In the second part of this stage, they are able to execute different shots and they are forced to play on all different areas of the court. Players will learn to play points with a purpose, building and finishing the point.
