What is Cognitive Vision Training (CVT)?

CVT, sometimes referred to as Neuro-Visual Training (NVT) or Vision-Based Speed-of-Processing (VSOP) training, are exercises that develop information processing ability, specifically visual information. Regular athletic training consists of drills conducted in accordance with the provided instructions, i.e. the athlete knows exactly what is required before the drill begins. Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) is when the athlete does not know exactly what is required when the drill begins, and must accurately process visual information during the drill to be successful. For example, if the athlete sees “A” during the drill then they must do “X”, if the athlete sees “B” then they must do “Y”, etc. CVT exercises the mind’s ability to process visual information. This is done by introducing unpredictable visual information during the drill that provides instruction on what is required to complete the drill.

Vector® Ball

How It Works

The Vector® Ball emits a short burst of light, randomly changing the color of the ball (red, green, or blue) each time it is struck, bounced, caught, etc. This provides athletes with unpredictable visual information that enables, live action, cognitive vision training drills.

Vision training exercises the brain using visual information. This improves the athletes ability to process information. The result is an improved ability to rapidly transfer visual information into deliberate athletic action.

Train Your Eyes, Train Your Brain, Improve Your Game.

The Vector® Ball is durable. It can be caught, thrown, bounced, etc. and used to support a full spectrum of live action CVT drills. It is useful for practically any athlete, youth to professional, and helps improve performance regardless of the sport. It is even durable enough for young athletes (10 and under) to hit it with a baseball bat while learning to keep their eye on the ball. The Vector® Ball’s patented technology represents the most versatile vision training device available. See the impact® on your game today.

Vector® Vision Drills

The Game Is Mental – Train Your Brain.

Wall Drill (individual)

Athlete stands approximately 10 ft. from wall, (adjust distance to increase or reduce difficulty. Closer = more difficult).

Throw Vector® Ball against wall and catch it with hand corresponding to the Ball’s color when it strikes the wall, e.g. if Ball is green when it strikes the wall then catch it with left hand, if red – right hand, if blue – both hands. You should change the color – hand association from time to time.

Ball should impact wall at approximately the athlete’s height, e.g. 6 ft. athlete’s throw should strike the wall at 6-7 ft., (adjust height to increase or reduce difficulty. Lower = more difficult). REPEAT

Floor Drill (partner)

Two athletes stand approximately 15 ft. apart, facing each other, (adjust distance to level of athletes conducting drill).

Bounce pass Vector® Ball to partner and they catch it with hand corresponding to the Ball’s color when it strikes the floor, e.g. if Ball is green when it strikes the floor then catch it with left hand, if red – right hand, if blue – both hands. You should change the color – hand association from time to time.

Then bounce pass Ball back to partner, (adjust the Ball’s skip distance to increase or reduce difficulty. Closer = more difficult). REPEAT

A Little About Eye On Ball

Several years ago, I began looking for a better way to train ballplayers to keep their eye on the ball.  I wanted to help my athletes achieve success and I believe the mind is the best way to attain it.  Often, I witnessed athletes becoming frustrated, not over a lack of speed or strength, but due to a lack of ability to process and exploit visual information.  As a former Army Ranger and Special Forces soldier, I understand the importance of mental focus and incorporating the mind into routine training drills.  I set out to create a vision training device that would be simple to implement into a full spectrum of training drills.  I came up with an idea for a ball that changes color instantly and randomly upon impact to create a live-action visual focal point.  After a lot of hard work, we produced our patented vision training ball.

Initially our vision training ball was used with baseball players but the Vector® Ball was always intended to develop athletes regardless of the sport or skill level.  The Vector® Ball develops an athlete’s speed of reaction through vision-based speed-of-processing training.  Regardless of athletic skill the process is the same.  See (eyes relay an image to your brain), Recognize (brain associates image with something it knows), and Exploit (brain directs movements based on visual information).  The better you are at seeing, recognizing, and exploiting information the better prepared you are for success.
