The Pre-Initiation Stage is the first stage of development at Sánchez-Casal Academy. Prior to this, 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 developmental group.

ASC Weekly Programs are little extracts of the Annual programs the 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 performing the split step.

General objectives of the stage

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

Players begin 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.
