Vision, Passion, Dedication

Player centered, growing the person inside and out
Tailor made for every individuals need

VISION

Every journey starts with a vision. It is the mission itself that inspires players and drives them to achieve incredible goals.

 

At TTA we start with the end in mind, and set small achievable goals leading up to the end goal. This could be a long term project or even a week camp. There always needs to be a destination before we can lay the path.

 

Without the passion, a vision is only a dream, but with the passion to chase your heart, and the dedication to pursue your goals, we believe almost anything is possible. That’s why we stand by those 3 pillars to success, it is our vision with which we follow passionately with unconditional dedication.

TENNIS

METHODOLOGY:

Tennis is an individual sport and we treat each players journey as that, Using a blend between the game based approach along with the very successful high-intensity drill based training systems of Spain, it is up to our expert team to understand each player, and match the training to their character, personality, and game style.

PLAYER CENTRED:

There are many parts to the integral puzzle that is the development of a tennis player, it is essential all these parts work together as a team, and at the centre of it all is the player. The team and program is then built around each player to suit.

SUPPORT:

Each player is given a lead coach to oversee their goals, progress, program, plan tournament schedule, liaise with the sports science team and importantly feedback to parents and/or guardians. All of which is reviewed continually by the academy director.

TOURNAMENTS:

Although we travel to tournaments in teams most of the time, the tournament programs are unique to each player. We accompany players to international events (ITF and Tennis Europe), national events (Rafa Nadal tour, and TTK Warrior Tour), as well as local individual and team events.

STEP BY STEP

The road is a long one, no matter what level you want to achieve.

 

We make sure everybody has clear goals, short and long, to act as stepping stones toward their future. We also emphasize the importance of celebrating and enjoying each mini success along the way.

SPORTS SCIENCE

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING:

Simply an integral part of any player’s pathway, each player is allocated between one to two hours of specific S&C work per day. Our S&C team work closely with players lead coaches to understand their individual requirements, as well as the rest of the sports science team. We also have designed dedicated injury prevention habits performed daily to ensure our players stay fit and healthy.

PYSIOTHERAPY:

We believe in prevention over treatment. So we work exclusively with world class physio specialising in tennis Salvador Martin, who has worked with many top players including Raonic, Gulbis, Klizan, and currently tours with Karolina Pliskova. Salva reviews our players regularly and liases with our S&C and Tennis teams to keep our players injury free.

NUTRITION:

Although we don’t control all of our player’s nutrition, the lunches and power up snacks we provide our players are under the guidance of our nutritionist. Some of our players choose to take on fully customised and personalised nutritional plans.

PSYCHOLOGY:

Mental toughness in sport is worked and practiced daily. From the language used by our coaches, to the way the workouts are designed, to help our players not only to become mentally strong, but also improve all aspects of our brain from concentration, to controlling emotions.

SYNERGY

STUDIES:

Having our own Study base on site gives us complete freedom to synergise our athletes schedule to maximise their use of time, as well as giving much needed flexibility for tournament and training scheduling.

TEACHER STUDENT RATIO:

With a maximum of 8 students to one teacher every minute of their learning is focused. Targets are set, achieved and managed with increased efficiency resulting in achievement at an efficient learning pace.

NO HOMEWORK:

Small classes and supported study sessions maximise learning and eliminate the need for home study. Home can become a place for rest and relaxation allowing family life to take centre stage.

FLEXIBLE:

Our students need flexibility to allow them to train any time of the day, and travel any time of the year. Our fully portable curriculum is built to provide 100% support. Working with Google Classroom allows players to continue study while on tournament travel.

CURRICULUM:

Our study centre follows the British Curriculum and our aim is for students to complete at least 5 iGCSE’s including English and Math at A* to C. As a school based in Spain a further focus is on the acquisition of languages. We offer those learners with English as a Second Language an intensive year of study to ensure that they are equipped with the language tools necessary to study successfully in English. In addition we offer Spanish Language studies for all our students from native speakers working for their ESO.
