visual skills

As a result of intensive scientific research and decades of progressive development and case studies, the Edge Trainer is the leading solution for evaluating, training and perfecting the core six visual skills. Vizual Edge has found that athletes with better visual skills generally perform better in their sport.

Convergence

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

  • Ability to focus on an incoming shot
  • Ability to locate the puck in a scrum

Divergence

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

  • Ability to locate the puck following the initial save/deflection
  • Locating the puck near the blue line

Depth Perception

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

  • Judge spin, speed and trajectory of a shot
  • Locating pucks coming from a distance

Alignment

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

  • Lining up position to make a save
  • Crispness & decisiveness of movements
  • Overall timing as a goaltender

Recognition

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

  • Recognizing opponent's positioning
  • 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
