The Dynavision D2 vision training board has had a tremendous impact at Gold in the Net Hockey Schools! The D2 has provided our goaltenders access to vision training at an entire new level and for the first time at a goaltending program.
We are able to combine off-ice training on the D2 with innovative on-ice tracking and reading drills. The D2 gives Gold in the Net goaltenders the edge to succeed!...An elite goaltender must excel at eye-hand coordination, peripheral awareness, cognitive processing ability, visual reaction time, decision making under stress and concentration under fatigue.
The D2 trains this and so much more! We see a substantial difference both mentally and physically between our goaltenders that combine D2 training with our on-ice programs compared to those that just participate on-ice.
Our clients love the challenge of the D2 and are excited for every session. Athletes enjoy getting a score. The tracking capabilities of the D2 allow our clients to compete against themselves and on our weekly leaderboard. All of our clients improve and are driven by the rush of reaching new bench marks. The D2 is very diverse and limitless in providing a challenge that is never-ending. Goaltenders of all ages and skill levels have been on our D2 vision training board. All of our clients leave wanting more of this cutting-edge technology.

SENAPTEC SENSORY STATION
Sensory Performance Training
Before you make a single move in training or competition, your senses are actively engaged and prepare the mind and body for action. Vision accounts for the majority of the sensory information received and processed by the brain. Science and research show that these visual and sensory skills are modifiable. Excellent sensory skills are often the competitive advantage to perceive and react more quickly in sport, battle, or other life activities.
With Senaptec’s technologies, you can assess, analyze and improve sensory performance to gain the winning edge. The Sensory Station is a state-of-the-art sensory evaluation & training solution which assesses individuals of all levels on 10 visual and sensorimotor skills. In less than 25 minutes you can determine an individual’s strengths and opportunities to improve sensory performance.
A Sensory Performance Report is produced immediately with an improvement plan to start training with our system. Sensory Station measurements are founded on scientific principles and proven through research.
The methodology has been used to evaluate youth, professional athletes and even the military. Senaptec’s data analytics include comparative databases from youth to professional sports in a wide range of sports and positions. Senaptec’s proprietary algorithms provide an 18-point analysis report immediately after the evaluation. A custom improvement plan is also included based on the report. Senaptec provides training tools for all assessed skills. The tools on the Sensory Station training platform are built as games that are designed to help people improve their sensory performance.
In 25 minutes, the Sensory Station can assess an individual on 10 visual and sensorimotor skills,including: visual clarity; contrast sensitivity; depth perception; near-far quickness; perception span;multiple object tracking; reaction time; target capture; eye-hand coordination; and go/no go acumen.
The assessment immediately provides a report comparing the individual to other players and professional athletes. The report reveals the player’s sensory strengths and areas for improvement, allowing the user to develop a custom program for improvement using training tools and drills on the Sensory Station.

Winning is a Mental Game
Gold in the Net made history by being the first hockey school program to offer a complete mental training course to compliment its already impressive line-up of programs being offered. The Elite MTC (Mental Training Course) is a cross between the Elite program offered by GITN and the Pro Camp. Accompanied with the on ice element for this program is a mental training course that allows the goalie to attend to an entirely different component of their game while continuing to develop and enhance their on ice skills. Each day is comprised of a series of classroom sessions that go through theory, practical and finally a debrief to go along with the ice component of the program.
Everyone understands just how important the mental side of the game can be and everyone really wants to perform better, so based on its importance why do people spend so little time perfecting such an important part of their game? The lack of true understanding of exactly what mental training is coupled with the lack of physical results or proper guidance and direction all have contributing factors as to why some goalie don’t spend the proper amount of time working on the mental part of the their game.
What GITN did was to simplify the process and put it into terms that they can understand. The program works like this; each day we start with a lecture where theory is examined. This is where the goalie gets interested and understands why it will help but it is the next step that begins the process of improving the mental capacity for each goalie. The practical side the mental training is the next classroom setting. Here the goalies will learn how to implement it into their game by actually doing and applying the theoretical part of the program. The program concludes each day with a debriefing to ensure that every aspect has been covered and absorbed by the student. Each day continues on with a different topic with incredible results.
Taking the goalie through the steps to create their own personalized elements and scripts that they will need to implement mental training will allow them the success and the ability to continue to work on their mental game throughout the season.
Each goaltender has their own net in the morning ice session and share the net with only one other goalie for the afternoon sessions.
This program is operated under the same guidelines as our pro camp and offers GITN's most complex program. It is available in 5-day (Elite + MTC) and 10-day program (MTC Complete GOLD).
