Daniel Caverzaschi was born on July 11, 1993, with a malformation in his right leg. He is a role model. A national and world reference in the world of tennis. His ability has allowed him to achieve personal and sports success.
In the Emilio Sanchez Academy, we are fortunate to have him as a part of our academy, a part of our identity, a player who is next to us. We are lucky to see him improve every day, and we consider him an example for young people to follow. On Wednesday, June 15th we had the opportunity to listen to him, he talked in front of families and ES students who were graduating from the senior class of 2022. Daniel told us his story, making it a story full of motivation and overcoming daily challenges.
These days, most parents are asking ourselves, what are our children going to do this summer? Usually, summer is a time when our children can enjoy their favorite sports, and even, work on improving a second language, often English. However, the uncertainty in the world around us raises questions that are difficult to answer. Will we be able to travel abroad? Will it be safe for our children? For this reason, at Sánchez-Casal Barcelona, we have several exciting opportunities to help you decide.
At long last, we have come to the end of the year 2020! We can’t help but look forward to one of the most unexpected years of our lives finally ending. We are truly ready for this year, which has brought us a new disease that continues to knock down the whole world, to be left in the past. Indeed, it has been a tough year, but we have already talked about it too much! Now that there are only a few days left, we prefer to think positively and remember everything it has taught us.
At Sánchez-Casal Academy, we do love to welcome our former students. Many of them visit us, especially during summer, and come to enjoy what was their second home for a while. The academy becomes a meeting point for former colleagues, who now live far from each other, but who take advantage of their holiday to meet again on the court. They also visit us to train, to keep fit or to improve aspects of their game with their former coaches.
Marc Feliu and Diego Herrera, from Class of 2018, visited us this summer and shared their time and experiences with us.
After 5 months of uncertainty, June of 2020 started with brightness. All of our academies were open, our main objective was to protect our community. To be able to guarantee the health and wellness of our big ASC family, we adapted our spaces, protocols, groups and we faced the summer with the motivation of welcoming our summer students. Also the new scholar year 2020-2021 starts with big challenges and we want to share with you, with a new video, how do we face them.
When other parents ask me why they should enroll their children in the Summer Camp of Sánchez-Casal Academy, I can give them many reasons, and all of them are compelling arguments, but there is one argument that seems particularly enticing to me: the extraordinary international atmosphere that students live and breathe at the Sanchez-Casal Academy campus.
Since 2011, players from 100 different countries, and from 5 different continents, have visited Sánchez-Casal Barcelona. Citizens from more than half of the countries in the world have trained with us!
One day, our children might tell us that they want to be a professional tennis player. And we realize that yes, they have talent. But we know how difficult it is to become a professional athlete. Pursuing their dream will take many hours of their leisure time and also many hours of study. Could it be worth to try it out? Or do we have to push this idea out of their minds?
Fitness in tennis represents a very strong and important pillar on the players preparation; a well designed physical plan can be the key factor for a successful match result. At ASC daily physical training is composed of 1 hour of athlete-specific performance training; working on different aspects including: speed, power, agility, quickness, coordination, balance, and core.
The start of the new academic year at our headquarters in Barcelona comes full of news. We would like to share with you all the improvements we have made, all of which center around the player as the main protagonist of our project: Playsight’s recording and video analysis system; Head Sensors on the racket, new GreenSeet courts, and the complete renovation of our facilities in the gym alongside Technogym, the leading brand in the sector.
As the Class of 2019 prepares to graduate from ASC/ ESIS, a wide variety of opportunities await them in life, most immediately at colleges and universities throughout the United States. The 13 seniors, comprising the largest Academy class from Naples to graduate thus far, have accepted offers from some of the finest academic and athletic programs in the nation, among them Tufts University, Michigan State University and Brigham Young University.
