The Tour Prep Annual program is the annual training program of maximum intensity in Sánchez-Casal Tennis Academy. It is designed for players over 16 years of age who are exclusively dedicated to tennis and firmly oriented towards competing.

The program combines high-performance daily tennis training with a specific physical training program, a unique system of sports psychology (the ASC Athlete Mind System) and a customized competition schedule. Based on the Sánchez-Casal system, the daily training includes technical exercises in tactical mobility and competition strategy. All of this is supplemented by a choice of either English or Spanish language classes.


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.

Boarding or Non boarding

  • The Academy offers three types of accommodation on-campus: Residence, Bungalows or Apartments, which adapt to a variety of different accomodation needs.
  • Students can also live off campus or live half-board at the Academy.

Push Program

Players can boost their tennis level even further with the Push Program.

  • The Push Program can be integrated within the Summer Camp Program and includes one hour a day, Monday through Friday, of private tennis training. This allows student-athletes to work intensively on the technical and tactical side of the game.
  • Two hours per week of physical training are provided in a group of maximum 4 players.
  • One session of Mental Training is offered in a separate group of 1 to 4 players.

The developmental pyramid of the Academia Sánchez-Casal Players.
Based on the ASC Training System© used in our Academies, Emilio Sánchez Vicario has created a pyramid to describe the evolution of players as they progress for their athletic development, by age and level of play.

Each stage of this evolution has its own general and specific objectives for each pillar of training (technical, tactical, physical and mental).
