COLUMBUS, Ohio, September 30, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Overbound revolutionizes sports training by taking eyesight development from elite-only programs, making it available to athletes of all competitive levels. The company is introducing Performance, a highly effective Eyesight Trainer and Method that develops the visual skills most needed for exceptional results in a game (space awareness, reaction time, depth perception and ball tracking), and significantly elevates creativity, playmaking, and the effectiveness of routinely trained drills, like ball possession, passing, dribbling, or finishing. The system works on principles of selective vision obstruction, featuring a pair of training goggles with five changeable opaque shields, and a series of short ten-minute training sessions. It is recommended to be practiced during the warm-up at the playing field, guaranteeing a seamless translation of the acquired skills into game situations. Fast, simple, and trained in the real world setting are the attributes that allow for the program to be easily incorporated into existing routines, and thus into everyday sports practice. The regimen benefits individual athletes or large teams, youth, collegiate, or pro. All sports are included. Now pre-selling on Kickstarter.
BENEFITS OF GREAT VISION ARE COUNTLESS, BUT THE SKILLS ARE RARELY TRAINED
"Player's vision is what dictates the play," says Jacob Kirby, Program Director at Westerville United SC.
Among the benefits most coaches assign to great vision are field/space awareness, faster reaction, better receiving, and passing with precision.
Additionally, eyesight training during warm-up sharpens athletes' senses, which amplifies their ability to learn other skills and makes practice sessions more productive.
While coaches consider visual proficiency to be highly important for an athlete's success in the sport they coach, only 43% have ever trained it. Generally it is a domain of elite programs.
BRINGING EYESIGHT TRAINING TO YOUTH AND COLLEGE TEAMS
"The training is very unique. It has made a huge difference in my spatial awareness and how I perceive the pace of the game," says Jean-Luc Lapierre, training with QTSD Soccer
Overbound Performance teaches the skills sports coaches desire, respecting the limitations of time and place, and delivering fast results from the very first session.
By controlling the visual stimuli received by the player's eyes, Performance promotes a stronger connection between the eyes and the brain, between what is being seen, and how fast it is being interpreted.
The practice sessions are short, leveraging the game field, existing warm-up routines and practice props.
For early adopters, Performance is now available on Kickstarter.
