Black Sticks Women’s Goal Keeper
Sports Vision Training
“I completed a series of sport vision training sessions with Jeremy at Gates Eyewear in the lead up to the Hockey World Cup and Commonwealth games in 2014, where we won the bronze medal.
In 6 weeks of sessions (which were a lot of fun into the bargain) using the light board my reaction speed increased, and the ability to pick up the line of a hockey ball flying towards me at 100km/hr transferred into making saves I had not been making prior to the sessions.
Jeremy and the whole team at Gates were great, taking an interest in the sport, watching video clips as well as and coming to watch games and training to help tailor the training specifically to Hockey GK and my areas of weakness.
Thanks Gates, the input definitely improved my Goalkeeping – and I would recommend it to anyone playing a sport where hand eye co-ordination and speed is important.”
