Harvey Rattner (HRA) Sports Vision Clinic
Gold Glove Sports Academy will be hosting a clinic that is different from any other clinic out there for you to take your athlete to. Many clinics and camps out there focus on the physical side of any sport. There is more to hitting, pitching, fielding, shooting a basketball, catching a football, etc. Welcome the MENTAL and VISION/CONCENTRATION side of athletics. Many athletes focus all their attention to the physical side, hit 100’s of balls, field 100’s of balls, shoot 100’s of free throws, etc. When the game is on the line, those practice drills are great, but if you don’t have the concentration or the mental training, they don’t know how to relax themselves during competition. This is how athletes separate themselves from other athletes. Here is some information regarding what the clinic will consist of:
Harvey Ratner & Associates (HRA) Sports Vision, is an organization dedicated to enhancing performance in many different fields including, athletics, and drivers education (traffic safety). They also work with the leisure and aging community, stroke and rehab clients, and law enforcement officers. HRA primarily focuses on improving performance for athletes of all ages and all ability levels for virtually every sport through vision training.
SPORTS V I S I O N TRAINING
Develops the ability to:
• Coordinate proper eye movements with the body.
• Maintain concentration during an athletic event or performance.
• Make quick and accurate decisions on and off the field or court.
• Visualize yourself doing your sport or activity.
• Pay attention to coaches instruction during practice and game time.
Of all physical actions, 80% are initiated with the eyes. If the eyes are not
aligned properly or not as strong as they can be, the physical action may not be
performed correctly. Many mistakes such as miss-hitting a baseball, dropping a
pass in football, safety and academic failures (i.e., reading and writing skills) can
be attributed to visual defects.
We are very excited to host this clinic!! This is a very important part of the development process for all athletes!!!
