Baseball

Hitting a pitched baseball requires a batter to clearly see location, rotation, and motion of the ball. Training the efficiency and precision of the two eyes working together helps athletes keep their eye on the ball.

  • Improved confidence in knowing when to swing
  • Increased field awareness in knowing when and where to throw next
  • Improved timing and balance
  • Improved consistency in batting
  • Quicker reaction to field fly balls, line drives, and grounders
  • Enhancement of field recognition
  • Locate pitches more consistently
  • Improved performance under pressure in stressful situations
  • Improved concentration
  • Improved decision-making

BASKETBALL

Visual skills influence overall court awareness and specifically depth perception, eye tracking, focusing flexibility, eye alignment, and visual memory are all used for free throw shooting, jump shots, set shots, passing, and judgment of distances between yourself, the basket, and other players.

  • Improved consistency in performance
  • Improved performance under pressure in stressful situations
  • Improved coordination and balance
  • Quicker reaction time to block shots, intercept passes, or rebound
  • Enhanced court awareness of teammates, opponents, referees, etc.
  • Improved concentration
  • Improved overall decision-making
  • Improved shooting accuracy by better judgment of the basket location

FOOTBALL

  • Improved consistency in performance
  • Improved performance under pressure in stressful situations
  • Improved coordination and balance
  • Quicker reaction time
  • Enhanced field awareness of teammates, opponents, referees, etc.
  • Improved concentration
  • Improved overall decision-making
  • Improved timing accuracy

Quarterbacks:

      • More efficient scanning of the field
      • Quicker defensive reads
      • Cleaner hand-offs
      • Increased consistency in the passing game

Kicker/Punter:

      • Increased handling of poor snaps
      • More accurate judgment of goal posts
      • Increased kicking accuracy

Linemen:

      • React to snap faster without penalties
      • Read plays faster and more accurately

Receivers:

      • More consistent catching
      • Increased perception of where the ball is in free space
      • Increased awareness of defensive players in relation to self

      • Play angles more accurately
      • More precise ball handling

GOLF

Visual skills influence all aspects of a golf game, including putting, driving, chipping, judging distances, concentration, and reading the greens. Visual tracking skills are necessary for keeping the eyes steady and on the ball prior to impact from the swing and for locating the ball in flight.

  • Improved swinging consistency
  • Improved concentration
  • Improved accuracy of shifting focus between the ball and the target
  • Improved accuracy in judging distance to the hole

HOCKEY

Visual tracking, focusing flexibility, depth perception, reaction time, and visual memory are paramount for goalies to recognize and react to the speed, direction, and height of the puck. In addition, goalies must continuously be aware of the offensive and defensive players without losing sight of the puck.

  • Improved consistency in performance
  • Improved performance under pressure in stressful situations
  • Improved coordination and balance
  • Quicker reaction time to fast moving shots and passes
  • Enhanced field awareness of teammates, opponents, referees, etc.
  • Improved concentration
  • Improved overall decision-making
  • Improved timing accuracy
  • Improved pass accuracy
  • Improved visual memory
  • Improved confidence in shooting

SOCCER

Vision is the dominant sense for soccer and most sports. As soccer is a sport of almost constant motion, learning and developing peripheral vision awareness, improved reaction time and concentration will lead to superior performance in the game, but also helps to avoid collision and injury.

  • Improved peripheral vision awareness of the ball, other 21 players, boundaries and goal
  • Improved judgement in distances when connecting on passes or leading teammates
  • Improved reaction time to opponents move
  • Improved timing in connecting with passes
  • Improved shooting accuracy
  • Improved concentration, especially in high pressure situations
  •  Improved coordination and balance

TENNIS

  • Improved perception of speed and direction of ball when playing volleys, baseline drives, return of serves, and overheads
  • Improved ability to track the ball and quicker reaction to its direction
  • Improved eye alignment for more accurate fixation on the ball
  • Improved depth perception of the ball’s position in free space
  • Improved concentration
  • Improved focusing flexibility when returning a serve
  • Improved eye-hand coordination
  • Enhanced court awareness of the sidelines, baseline, service line, and net
  • Improved accuracy of racquet placement
  • More controlled body movement

VOLLEYBALL

Blocking:

      • Quicker processing of visual information
      • Quicker decision-making
      • Improved perception of the position of teammates and opponents
      • Improved awareness of sidelines, baseline, and service line
      • Improved tracking of the ball
