The Pre-Initiation Stage is the first stage in the Sánchez-Casal Academy. Prior to this stage, the students generally play Afterschool Tennis. The Pre-Initiation stage usually goes from 8 to 9 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 ASC Pyramid©.

The players in the pre-initiation stage work on grasping technical concepts. The general aim is to polish their back swing technique from preparation to finishing the shot, and improve the waiting position after doing the split step.

General objectives of the stage

Footwork, balance and coordination are essential at this stage, as the exercises become more advanced. The players begin rallying with each other without the participation of the coach.

Players start to participate in basic competitions, with age-appropriate rules.

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.
