The Ferrer Tennis Academy's unique methodology is based on four different stages, according to the age and level of the players.   All four stages have one thing in common: Perfect Technical Stroke Repetition.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Stage One is for kids from 3- to 6-year olds.  This is when the children begin to get familiarized with the racquet, ball and tennis court.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Stage Two is for students from 6- to 12- years old.  In this Stage, the FTA concentrates their efforts in trying to achieve the best technical movements from the student.  As well, the FTA has developed their own system called “three steps per stroke.”  In the beginning, the technique is developed at middle court, and once students are familiar with the technique of the strokes; they are moved to the back line of the court emphasizing technique as well as power.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Stage Three is for the student from 12- to 15- years old.  At this Stage, the FTA starts working on the student’s feet movement and mobility on court.  This practice also uses the “three steps per stroke” approach.   In this stage, the FTA starts developing the tactical strategies of tennis depending on the player’s individual characteristics for the game.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Stage Four is for the aspiring adolescent: those players who decide to start their professional life with full dedication training in the morning and afternoons.  At this stage, the FTA develops the player’s psychology, power through physical preparation and coordination.  The competition team then travels around Europe playing the selected international tournaments of the year.
