The Pre-Initiation Stage is the first stage of development at Emilio Sánchez 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.
ES Academy Weekly Programs are little extracts of the Annual programs the Academy offers, which are based on the ES Academy 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.
For stays longer than one week, players have the opportunity to participate in local tournaments, as well as national, or even international events, that are being held during their stay (ask for more information about the ES Academy Atlanta tournaments calendar).
