and coaching meet
I. How do we understand the game?
Tennis consists of a sequence of work of eyes, legs, brain and hands.
The 4 steps of tennis
(1) Recognize the trajectory of the ball, (2) move the body to position itself, (3) select the stroke and (4) activate feet and hands for its final execution.
''Speed is king''
It is the differential element that separates the best players from the rest.
The fast game
The real beauty of this sport is at the speed in which players are able to combine the actions of the game sequence.
The essence of tennis, as in sport in general, is competition
Learning by competing
Mastering all the aspects mentioned above at a high speed and being able to do so in competition is the biggest challenge a player will have.
II. The 10 principles of our method
Educatennis Sports DNA
The integration of technical, coordinating, tactical and competitive concepts from the start is essential for the optimal development of the players.
Players don't spend years practicing technically complicated gestures before starting to work on the tactics or competing. Players naturally learn all the technical needs looking for solutions to tactical problems during the competition.
The power of curiosity
Cultivating curiosity and interest develops and promotes player autonomy
Motivation and interest
Reciprocal teaching between players, guided discovery, methods on questions for players to reflect and think, propose ''motivating challenges'' that work to overcome the proposed activities
Mix of methods
The combination of various training methods is key to harnessing the potential of players.
From guided discovery to reciprocal teaching
The mix of methodologies increases the cognitive participation of the student and promotes the autonomy and confidence of the players.
Fun is essential
A fun teaching method with many games and challenges makes it easy to keep our players motivated at any age.
The creative player
Competition against others and against oneself creates a level of intensity and concentration that causes players to raise their level.
The learning chain
Our teaching philosophy is based on the development of players through the chaining of the concepts necessary to achieve effective, complete and modern tennis players
Throughout their development stages, players must continue to evolve, and learn, but above all, coaches shall prioritize the improvement of their innate abilities.
Developing speed as a key factor
Reducing game space and hitting time, we accelerate decision-making and motor response from our players
Shortening players' reaction times
EducaTennis methodoogy is new and disruptive, as it creates the conditions that favor work on specific and necessary neurotransmitter stimuli in the teaching of tennis
Learning by competing
From an early age we teach through games to start confronting the player to the reality of the sport.
Competition against others and against oneself creates a level of intensity and concentration that is the essence that makes players raise their level. It also starts to face players with real problems and difficulties that arise in the competition.
Challenges as a work tool
With challenges systems, we support the coach and the player, through ''motivational challenges'' that help them evolve and progress naturally
The feeling of developing skills is vital to the continuity of players in the sport.
