How Does Vision Training Improve Performance?
You might not have thought about it before, but soccer is a visually demanding sport.
Everything that happens during the game is as a result of visual information. From reacting to the ball through to making tactical decisions.
People have very different visual abilities, just like they have different strength, speed and stamina.
And just like these other attributes, it's very important for playing soccer at a high level.
The difference is, very few people know that vision can be trained and improved. And even fewer people are actually doing it.
But through training, you can improve all aspects of vision leading to some very significant performance benefits:
One of the key targets of vision training area the areas of the brain that process visual information. Training them makes them work faster, which gives players quicker reactions. This can be the difference between winning and losing. It helps attacking players react faster to through balls or crosses. It help defenders react more quickly to what their opponent is doing. And is a total game changer for goal keepers!
Vision training improves both hand to eye and foot to eye coordination. Foot to eye coordination is obviously one of the biggest limiting factors in a players performance. By improving it, high level players can get even better. And it can help less skillful players completely transform their ability on the pitch. Improving hand to eye coordination is another game changer for goal keepers.
The best players have great field vision. They can quickly look up and see the patterns of play that are unfolding. Or from a defensive perspective, they are better able to anticipate what is going to happen next. This tactical awareness depends on multiple different skills working well. But peripheral vision is especially important. Vision training drastically improves players tactical awareness.
Even at the highest levels most goals are conceded because of simple mistakes, rather than great play. And mistakes generally happen when a player loses focus. Maybe they switch off for a second allowing the player they were marking to get free. Or they didn't step up at the right time, so the offside trap failed. And lack of focus from the goal keeper nearly always results in conceding a goal. Vision training helps to build incredible focus that reduces the number of mistakes.
