Specialized & targeted training program for baseball, softball, hockey goalies, lacross goalies, football & tennis players
High-Tech Vision Training Explained
Have you ever wondered why you haven't improved your hitting after you have been coached over and over on hitting mechanics? You have taken pitch after pitch in the batting cages, but in the game, you just don't find the success you're capable of. Besides, there are so many things to remember: Keep my weight back, line up the knuckles, head down, elbow up, etc. etc. Successful hitting takes good hand-eye coordination. Most instruction spends all of their time on half of the equation, the hands, or mechanics. The eyes are almost completely ignored.
Most problems in hitting are a direct result of seeing the ball poorly or not at all. No one has ever taught you how to see. That is where we come in. High Tech Vision Training is a patented, state of the art conditioning program that combines the physical and mental skills of hitting in one program. The singular most important part of hitting is seeing the ball! You can "talk" mechanics all day, change your stance, use a different bat, better learn the strike zone, do hitting drills all day long, but if you can't see the ball, you're not going to hit it.
Today, hitters have been “mechanic’d to death”, yet vision training is almost completely ignored. The eyes are the key to everything to successful hitting. They are the foundation on which all other aspects are built. When a Major League baseball player is on a hot streak, he usually says, ”I’m seeing the ball really well”.
One player put it best when an interviewer asked during the 2009 World Series why he was hitting so well. He said, “I’m seeing the ball the best I can and just trying to hit it”. He has himself in a simple frame of mind to be a successful hitter. He was not thinking at the plate. He just had his eyes and hands working together.
Our conditioning program does just that.
We teach baseball, softball, lacross & hockey goalies, tennis & football players to track, bunt, catch, and hit balls propelled from a patented machine knuckling at speeds from 60 – 150 miles per hour. On each ball is a fixation target less than an inch in diameter written in red or black, the batter must learn to identify.
On the surface, it helps batters increase ball contact, walks, batting average, and reduce strikeouts. More importantly, our players develop a depth of confidence at the plate they weren’t able to achieve before. This happens because the conditioning process is so extreme, demanding the highest level of focus and concentration that it slows the game down at any skill level.
Our students dramatically improve the way they see, recognize, and adjust to pitches after only a few lessons. We condition the eyes, brain, and muscles to work as a team, speeding up reaction time and creating a more fluid swing. This system enhances a player’s vision by learning how to elevate their focus and concentration levels, tracking abilities, eye positioning, and eye-hand coordination. Our program is used from little league to the major league.
The 2008 and 2009 NCAA World Series softball champions use our system, Arizona State and the University of Washington. This system is also used by professional baseball players and Olympic gold medal softball players. We will change the way you play the game with our conditioning system.
Tom Davidson began working in Major League Baseball as a vision trainer in 1998. He worked with the Seattle Mariners for eight years, and periodically traveled to other teams who requested his services. Tom has been able to take what he has developed and learned as a professional vision trainer and tailor it to work for athletes of varying ages and abilities.
WHO WE ARE
High-Tech Vision Training: Seeing Is Believing
High-Tech Vision Training is a highly effective and innovative way of training a baseball/softball player’s eyes to trackballs with precision at high speeds. When done regularly, vision training conditions a player’s eyes to identify pitches from the pitchers hand and track balls into the hitting zone, allowing more time for adjustment and more accurate central vision and solid contact with the ball.
Baseball and softball are becoming more and more competitive at every level. High-Tech Vision Training gives athletes a mental and physical advantage over other players by enhancing vision, concentration levels, focus, tracking abilities, eye positioning, and hand-eye coordination.
Tom Davidson has worked with numerous professional baseball teams, including Seattle, Colorado, Detroit, San Diego, and the 2001 World Series Champion Arizona Diamondbacks as well as National Champions of Softball University of Washington and Arizona State.
Working with some of the top players of today’s game. Tom has developed methods to enhance a player’s vision, concentration levels, focus, tracking abilities, eye positioning, and hand-eye coordination. These methods have given professional athletes a mental and physical advantage over other players, and his work with collegiate players, amateurs and youth in baseball and softball has produced the same excellent results.
