Hitting a round ball squarely with a round bat is one of the most difficult things to do in sports, especially if the ball is traveling at over 90 mph. You have approximately 0.4 seconds to hit a pitch traveling at that speed. Vision Training helps hitters see the release of the pitch more clearly which helps anticipate the oncoming pitch. Also, the hitter will track the ball with better focus and better depth perception. With improved hand-eye coordination and faster hand speed, the hitter can wait longer to hit the ball and make a more accurate swing, leading to higher batting averages and more power.
On defense, our Vision Training helps players read the ball as it is being hit so they can move to the spot where they can catch the ball. Also, the foot-eye coordination training helps the player make a quick first step to take a better line to the ball.
Whether you are a goalie, a forward, or a defenseman, Vision Training can help you see the game better. Goalies see the release of the puck off the stick so that they can track the puck towards them with greater clarity and depth perception. Also, with better peripheral vision, goalies are able to see where other players are on the ice so they can anticipate passes and plays.
Better peripheral vision will help forwards and defensemen see the movement of other players, anticipate plays, and be where the puck is going before it gets there. Also, knowing where a check is coming from helps prevent injuries. Hockey is a game that is played at a high speed in a confined space, so decisions need to be made quickly. What a player sees will allow him to decide to shoot, pass, or hold the puck. The more clarity he sees this with is the key to successful “split-second” decision making.
Tennis players need to be able to change their focus from near to far quickly and accurately. The ability to track the ball clearly and accurately is essential to the game. Also, tennis players can improve their anticipation by seeing the body position and racquet position of their opponent. With improved hand-eye coordination they can make more accurate swings at the ball and hit it in the sweet spot more frequently. With improved foot-eye coordination the tennis player can get to the ball faster, set, and prepare to hit the ball sooner, which leads to more accurate and more powerful shots.
