At Sánchez-Casal Academy, we have created our own premier training system, the ASC 360 Tennis System®, proven time and time again to be the most effective method of ensuring students-athletes achieve their best tennis level.
Designed by Emilio Sánchez Vicario and Sergio Casal, the system combines the four theoretical pillars of athletic development – technical, tactical, physical (Athlete Body), and mental (Athlete Mind) with the sole objective of pushing players to achieve their top performance and help them reach their ideal competitive state.
Some of the benefits of the ASC 360 Tennis System ® are:
- Designed for all types of players, regardless of age, fitness condition or tennis experience.
- Compatible with all types of surfaces (clay, hard, or grass).
- Complete system designed to practice and enhance any game style or strategy.
- Improve players’ technical skills, physical conditioning, and strategic practices.
- Ideal system for players who want to move from the junior stages to the professional circuit.
This successful system has been used by professional ATP and WTA tennis players such as Andy Murray, Grigor Dimitrov, Juan Monaco, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Daniela Hantuchova, Tamira Paszek, Teimuraz Gabashvili, Gilles Müller, Johanna Konta, Maria Sakkari, Anna Blinkova, Ana Ivanovic, Magüi Serna and Arantxa Sánchez Vicario.
What makes our method really unique is that our High Performance training system places equal importance on both the player’s athletic development and on the player’s academic development. Thus, academics are provided through our own school, ES International School, which is located within the grounds of the tennis academy.
ES International School focuses on the academic, social and emotional development of students from first grade through 12th grade, spanning Elementary School, Middle School and High School. In Elementary School, we are currently a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and are pursuing authorization to become an official IB World School in September 2020.
In High School, we offer an Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) Classes, providing students with the skills necessary to be successful as they continue onto university. We work actively with our students so they can obtain athletic and academic scholarships at universities across the United States.
We are proud of one of the recent accolades achieved by the Academy founders: in 2017, Emilio Sanchez and Sergio Casal received the Philippe Chatrier Award: which is the ITF’s highest accolade, awarded to individuals for their outstanding contributions to tennis. As ITF President David Haggerty said: “We are delighted to present Sergio Casal and Emilio Sanchez with the Philippe Chatrier Award for their contributions to tennis as a successful doubles team and in the field of coaching. Their on-court achievements paved the way for further Spanish success, and in founding a successful coaching academy, they have shaped the careers of several prominent players and the lives of many more.”
We invite you to get to know our Academy and our system by joining any of our Weekly Programs in Naples (FL, USA), Barcelona (Spain), Atlanta (GA, USA) or Nanjing (China).
