NSPI has officially joined with NeuroSport Performance to start the first NeuroTracker study on baseball and softball players. Utilizing the number of athletes training at the Cooper Sport Performance and our Mental and Vision Lab, the study will consist of baseball and softball players from age 16 to the profressional level. The program has launched this past week, and we are off to a great start with athletes starting the NeuroTracker program.
The NeuroTracker is a computer based exercise that helps athletes train their focus and concentration abilities. This program has been used in soccer, rugby, and football. This is a very exciting time for baseball and softball, and we are hoping this training will prove to be beneficial on the field. We have been chosen to be the satelite for all baseball and softball research in regards to the effectiveness of the NeuroTracker training.
