An exceptional player will possess top-notch read-and-react skills when on the ice, anticipating where the puck is going because of their well-developed vision skills. This allows maximum peripheral vision to instantly help decide the next physical movement.

Throughout his book "Athletic Vision Skills", Dan Selin explains the science behind well-developed vision skills as the NEW sports skill. Simply put, a player's expanded field of vision offers more options for the brain to create instant automatic body movements. All good players possess well-developed skating, stickhandling, passing, and shooting skills, but a player's vision skill-level, once mastered, will change the way they play the game. Well-developed vision skills lessen body injuries and concussions, creating better-skilled and more-valuable players on the ice.

Terminology including head-up/chin-up, read-and-react, what's in your brain is how you play, five head positions, the 140-factor, etc., help explain how a player can effectively play without looking down and tracking the puck, contributing to safer play.

Dan's book presents practical solutions, testimonials from players and sports writers, first-person stories, statistics, newspaper articles, medical professionals' opinions, and facts. Empirical data collected through studies is used to support the basis of this new frontier for the training of tomorrow's highly-skilled hockey players.

About the Author

Dan may be the oldest, most experienced skill-development instructor in Canada, teaching skating and stick skills in unison since he was fifteen. Dan has evolved into a master skater and stickhandler throughout his years of instructing thousands of hockey players on the benefits of skill development and maintaining a head-up/chin-up position for game-related battles. It was within Dan's wheelhouse of skills to realize that his training program would help reduce concussions, critical to a player's skill set. His methods of on-ice instruction, teaching skills (not drills), brought him to the newest and most important skill any player of any sport should possess-Vision Skills.
