impression that performance is solely determined by physical capabilities and as a result, they
fail to account for compounding factors such as: fitness levels, visual skills, body composition,
nutritional status and the lifestyle habits of the athletes. If these are not optimised, they can
affect a player’s performance both on and off the field. Sports Vision training is a specific, safe
and legal technique which can be utilised to enhance performance. Ultimately motor skills
bridge the gap between fitness and technical ability, thus it is vital in training for sporting
excellence – as the body must be trained to respond to what the eyes see. Making use of Sports
