What is happening in the oceans?

This is a question once asked by a young ASC student-athlete. He was enrolled in Sánchez-Casal Barcelona and graduated in 2016 with clear goals and objectives of making a big impact on the world. Today, we want to share his success with all of you and show you our little piece of change that we are making, thanks to the inspiration of one of our alumni, Sam Bencheghib.

In the US, one of the most important dates of the year is Thanksgiving Day. After living here for seven years, we have started to understand this tradition and to feel part of it. The only problem is that when you have a tennis academy for kids from 10 to 18 years old, most of them have a goal to compete in Eddie Herr at IMG Academy on that weekend. – by Emilio Sanchez Vicario

Fitness in tennis represents a very strong and important pillar on the players preparation; a well designed physical plan can be the key factor for a successful match result. At ASC daily physical training is composed of 1 hour of athlete-specific performance training; working on different aspects including: speed, power, agility, quickness, coordination, balance, and core.

Jerry Shang- The heart of a champion

Jerry Shang is a 14-year-old player from China. He is part of the ASC Florida annual Tennis and School program for the last 2/2 years. Jerry came straight from ASC headquarters in Nanjing, where he started developing his skills as a player. Since Jerry and his father Yi landed in Naples, Florida in 2016 to play some tournaments, it has been nothing but a pleasure to work and be around them. He explains that at the time he thought that he wasn’t playing well, but that practiced at the Academy and liked the system and the possibility of combining both high-performance tennis and school. That’s when he decided to follow his dreams of being able to achieve a professional level of tennis and study at the same time.

BACK HOME FOR VACATIONS

Some of our student-athletes who graduated last year, from the Class of 2018, have returned home this summer for vacations, after their first year of college. For them it has been an intense year, full of emotions, work and tennis. They want to share their experiences with us, by visiting and playing tennis again on the courts that have seen them grow and develop.

Testimonial of a summer experience that became a path to achieve goals

Summer camp at ascflorida

When a player comes in the summer, he/she has a unique experience that makes them improve their tennis level, enjoy the activities, meet a lot of people from different parts of the world, get to know different cultures and leave with good memories of their summer. The beginning of the school is the end of a special summer, a summer that allowed the independent growth of a child who develops unique experiences. The school year complicates the possibility of accomplishing the goals of a boy or girl that is a sport lover and, at the same time wants to keep studying.
