Dreaming of an athletic scholarship? There is a big difference between good athletes and champions. What are you doing to stand out?
Many young athletes grow up dreaming of playing sports in college and beyond. Only a small percentage of youth athletes get the opportunity to compete at the college level and a smaller fraction will realize their goal of becoming a professional or Olympic athlete. Whether you are a coach looking for ways to give your athletes the competitive edge or a young athlete looking to optimize your skills, the Senaptec solution can help improve many fundamental skills such as movement, reaction time, eye-hand coordination, balance, timing, split attention and even focus for better academic achievement. Our system encompasses a host of sensory agility measurements by enhancing the athlete’s ability to process sensory information more efficiently.
How do I get started?
We recommend two initial steps. First, train with the Senaptec Strobe eyewear. This is our most accessible and versatile technology. Every athlete can benefit. You use the Strobe eyewear while performing traditional training drills. As the lenses flicker on and off, it is harder for your brain to process information. Quite quickly, your brain starts to overcome this resistance by processing more efficiently. After using them, athletes of all types report a multitude of benefits such as better awareness, faster reaction, and improved balance. As an added benefit, parents have also seen academic scores improve for those who have used Strobes for training.
Second, we highly recommend getting an evaluation on a Senaptec Sensory Station. Best case, you get this evaluation done prior to training with the Strobe eyewear. This way you have a baseline so you can easily measure improvement. The Sensory Station will assess your performance on 10 fundamental skills that are necessary for your success as an athlete. The assessment will show your strengths and opportunities compared to athletes who compete at the same sport, level, and position as you. This is a powerful first step in improving your competitiveness.
