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.

Language program

  • Students can choose their preferred foreign language: Spanish or English. These classes are offered by native teachers at ES International School, a private American school located on campus, and which is fully accredited by official bodies both the US and Spain.
  • Elementary to advanced levels of classes are offered.


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).
