Eyecarrot Sports Vision Partnership with Eli Wilson Goaltending Redefines How 50,000 Aspiring Goalies See the Game
Toronto, New York – TheNewswire – April 17th, 2020 – Eyecarrot Innovations Corp., (Eyecarrot) (TSXV:EYC) | (OTC:EYCCF) | (2EYA:GR) is excited to announce a multi-year partnership with Eli Wilson Goaltending, a world leader in goaltending development, goaltending camps, and clinics. Eli Wilson has established himself as one of the premier goaltending coaches in the world through his work with dozens of goaltenders in the National Hockey League (NHL) and Team Canada. The partnership will provide Eli Wilson Goaltending camps with the Binovi Touch neurovision sports training hardware, alongside screen-based resources for athletes to support their development on and off the ice. The Eli Wilson Goaltending partnership will ultimately expose 600 active goaltending camp participants, aged 10 to 19 years and a global network of over 50,000 aspiring goaltending athletes to Eyecarrot’s Binovi Sport Vision Platform for off-ice training. As many nations continue to practice social distancing during COVID-19 and post pandemic, the Binovi Sports Vision Platform offers accessible turnkey athletic resources in step with subscription-based home fitness solutions Tonal, Peloton (PTON: NASDAQ) and Mirror. A subscription structure will support the company’s global product scaling strategy and “at-home” consumer offerings.
“I emphatically believe the best way to develop goaltenders is by teaching a system within a system. Quality drills, attention to detail, repetition and simplicity are major factors in building successful goaltenders. The goaltender must learn needed skills in a progressive manner in a controlled environment. With Binovi, we are gaining a sports vision training system to improve vision in that same controlled way, ensuring proper analysis and progress.”Eli Wilson, Eli Wilson Goaltending Founder, CEO
Under his tutelage, Eli’s camps –which see over 600 athletes annually– have produced more than 50 NHL draft picks, over 60 Division I, Canadian University goaltenders, and more than 200 players drafted by Major Junior teams. His goaltenders have gone on to win numerous prestigious awards and championships, including the Stanley Cup, Conn Smythe Trophy, Vezina Trophy, World Junior Gold Medals, American Hockey League (AHL) championships, AHL Playoff MVPs, Western Hockey League (WHL) Goaltender of the Year awards, Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Goaltender of the Year awards, and Canadian Hockey League (CHL) Goaltender of the Year awards. In addition to standard camp programming, Eli has introduced a number of specialty camps, including the popular 24/7 camp, where goaltenders actually live and train with Eli over a three-day weekend. A main staple of Eli’s year-round training is advanced video technology, whereby he and his staff can analyze video remotely to further goaltending development.
This strategic partnership will support Eyecarrot’s aggressive positioning of its sports vision performance offerings in the sport of hockey through an increased presence in key hockey development programs including direct NHL team alignments. Hockey, a leading sport in Canada, will benefit from big-tech partnerships of this nature that are designed to enhance athlete performance at all development levels of the sport.
“We’re very excited to be working with an athletic training team that clearly has a very high drive for success, and such an incredible track record for turning out exceptional players. Our goal is to see Binovi boost the performance of athletes going through these camps and training regimens. After all, competition is what drives sport, and any edge players and their training teams can get to get that competitive edge over an opponent is key. We look forward to working alongside Eli and his team as we continue to develop Binovi for sports.”Adam Cegielski, President and CEO.
