RNA METHODOLOGY

“DEVELOP A CREATIVE AND MODERN GAME FOLLOWING OUR UNIQUE METHODOLOGY. ”

OUR DNA COURT TRAINING

RECOGNITION AND ANTICIPATION

We understand that modern tennis and tennis of the future is played first with the ‘eyes’, then with the ‘mind’, next with the ‘legs’ and finally with the ‘hands’. In the camps we will apply training systems geared in this direction to prepare you to anticipate and take the initiative of the game.

PATIENCE AND ENDURANCE

Develop patience, endurance, and consistency from the baseline to outplay your opponents.

EFFORT AND POWER

Build a solid game style based on an effort where any defensive situation can turn into an offensive opportunity by generating power in forced positions.

RISK MANAGEMENT AND TACTICAL KNOWLEDGE

Defense and offense are always intertwined in tennis, and it’s the instantaneous conversion of a losing position into a winning position that makes the sport so thrilling. Learning how to differentiate both positions and making good decisions will take your game to the next level.

BUILDING A CHAMPION #RNAVALUES

The mission of the entire team of the Rafa Nadal Camps is to teach young athletes the values that Rafa Nadal has transmitted on and off the court during his career.

Effort, discipline, honesty, commitment, humility, and respect are the identity values of the Academy and the pillars that sustain our education, training, and, in general, the comprehensive development of individuals.

ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

The coordination capacities of each student give them the base to make the impossible possible, to make what is possible look easy, and to make what is easy look elegant.

This includes mobility, balance, reaction speed, agility changing directions, the explosiveness of the movements, and resistance.

CONFIDENCE BUILDING

EMOTIONAL CONTROL & PROBLEM SOLVING ABILITIES
