THE SPORTS PROGRAM
- Our sports program is unique, offering the student-athlete a complete physical, social and emotional education.
- In the earlies primary grades, we are concerned with the individual’s well-being through the promotion and development of concepts, knowledge, attitudes and skills that contribute to achieve an active, and healthy lifestyle. Our student-athletes develop their abilities through sports and games.
- Tennis training is always the principal sport for our student-athletes in the Tennis Top 5/11 Program and training increases in intensity as the child progresses. Gradually, the group physical education classes decrease in quantity in order to allow the tennis training to dominate the athlete’s training hours.
- The program from 1st to 4th grade includes Personal, Social and Physical Education (PSPE) plus extra curricular hours of tennis training. When children arrive in 5th grade, the program includes 2 hours/week of Personal, Social and Physical Education (PSPE) plus 10 hours/week of tennis.

ES Academy 360 Tennis System
- The ES Academy Training System© is unique in the world. Designed by Emilio Sánchez Vicario, 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 ES Academy 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 developmental pyramid of the Emilio Sánchez Academy Players
Based on the ES Academy 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).
