Basketball is one of the
fastest moving sports. The ball and players are
in constant motion. Visual memory, balance and
concentration are some key elements that vision
training can work to improve.
Some symptoms of visual
breakdowns in basketball are:
- Poor free throw
- Shooting either
short or long
- Dropped passes
- Missed teammates,
Shooting well and
executing plays well are basic spatial skills
based on vision. Teaching the eyes to focus
quickly and accurately can aid shooting skills.
Similarly better concentration and focus will
help free throw shooting. Learning plays has a
lot to do with the player's ability to quickly
know where the other four players will be on the
court. Visual memory and spatial skills are
essential to running crisp plays.
