Improving hockey performance requires the three main systems: Visual System, Vestibular (Balance) System, and Proprioceptive (Movement) System to each function well and to work together.
Visual System 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. Sports Vision Training improves:
Consistency in performance
Performance under pressure in stressful situations
Coordination and balance
Faster reaction time to fast moving shots and passes
Field awareness of teammates, opponents, referees, etc.
