Cognitive Vision Development in Sports
The brain is the most important component of athletic performance. Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) requires the athlete to accurately process visual information. For example, if the athlete sees “A” then do “X”, if the athlete sees “B” then do “Y”, etc. This can be accomplished in many ways using the Vector® Ball. Modifying common athletic drills/exercises where the athlete must execute different movements depending on the color of the Ball when it is caught, bounced, etc. is just one example. Regular CVT improves the athlete’s speed of reaction and ability to process visual information.
Practically every component of practically every sport requires information processing. Each moment athletes are faced with options e.g. move left or right. Moving in the wrong direction and/or delays in movement create a significant disadvantage. The ability to see, recognize, and exploit visual information quickly and accurately is the most significant advantage any athlete can have. If The sport requires concentration and decision making then The Vector® Ball can help improve the athlete’s game.
