The importance of vision for sport performance

Around 80% of the information that your body receives comes through your eyes. Athletes spend hours each week improving the speed, strength and endurance of their muscles but if they are inefficient at processing visual information, it this training a waste of time? In this talk Zöe will discuss the role of the visual system in elite performance, the differences between expert and novice performers, as well as how to train and improve your own vision for performance.

If you need your eyes open to perform then this talk is for you. It is directly aimed at those interested in sport (be that as an athlete, coach, official, or teacher) but would also be relevant to anyone who has to make fast decisions based on what they are seeing.

Zoe is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology, and vision training specialist. She has significant experience of delivering vision coaching to elite athletes, including Formula 1 drivers, Great Britain Hockey, Harlequins Rugby, British Shooting, Premier league Football clubs and many more.
