“It's something you can always keep improving, your tracking and your vision, for me, that's something that I really prioritize in my game, so any edge you can find to improve that part of your game, I try and find those."

Whether you're a forward or defenseman, visual skills play a critical role in a hockey athlete's ability to process information quicker on the ice to make the best decisions to help the team succeed. Tracking of the puck, understanding your position on the ice and making accurate passes are all tied to an athlete's core visual skills.

Visual Skills

Understanding the core-six visual skills allows hockey players, coaches and scouts to identify and improve visual weaknesses and enhance the athlete’s overall performance on the ice.

Convergence

Convergence is the ability to focus on objects within close proximity and judge their movement.

  • General stick handling
  • Ability to receive a pass or connect on a one timer

Divergence

Divergence is the ability to locate objects in the distance, impacting an athlete’s ability to anticipate and react.

  • Scanning of the ice & ability to quickly find open teammates or passing lanes
  • Ability to quickly locate an open part of the net when shooting

Depth Perception

Depth perception uses both eyes to locate objects in space to judge their distance, speed, and direction.

  • Ability to line up checks and redirect shots
  • Judge in game distances

Alignment

Proper alignment creates no difference between the perceived location and actual location of an object.

  • Accurately lining up a shot or pass to hit intended target
  • Crispness & decisiveness of movements

Recognition

Recognition is the ability to observe, process and recall a series of visual targets, and respond properly.

  • Recognizing offense/defensive positioning & reading of the game
  • Anticipation & reacting to the puck
  • Overall hockey sense & reading of the game

Tracking

Tracking allows you to follow an object while continuously monitoring all other aspects of the game.

  • Reacting to deflections & passes
  • Overall anticipation & reaction speeds
  • Tracking the puck as it moves across the ice
“I would say the one area of my game where it helped the most was tracking the puck. Tracking the puck was an issue for me in the past, but I felt that my efficiency this year increased exponentially from this training program

-Ben sharf, center, colgate university
