MLS Team Sporting KC Partners with Eyecarrot for High Performance Vision Training using Binovi
Eyecarrot Innovations Corp., (Eyecarrot) (TSX-V: EYC | OTCQB: EYCCF) announces a new partnership with MLS Team Sporting Kansas City and the state-of-the-art Pinnacle National Development Center, which is the training home of Sporting KC and the USA National Soccer Teams.
Sporting Kansas City has reached the MLS Cup Playoffs for eight straight seasons, most recently securing a first-place finish in the Western Conference in 2018. A charter member of Major League Soccer, Sporting KC has won four U.S. Open Cup titles, two MLS Cup championships and one Supporters’ Shield.
“In this day and age, every organization, whether it be professional or collegiate sport, attempts to achieve the perfect balance between physical output and the minimization of injury. Synchrony between these two aspects is achieved through a balanced understanding of technological interpretation and a comprehensive approach to integrating the technologies within the team environment. We are incredibly excited to implement Binovi Touch into our regimen to assist in baseline testing our athletes for post-concussion rehab, screen our athletes to develop a thorough vision profile throughout the athletes at all levels in our organization, and to create individualized vision training protocols for their deficiencies. The game of soccer can be heavily impacted by the different components of an athlete’s eye; visual acuity, depth perception, “blind spots”, visual recognition, and hand eye coordination. With Binovi Touch, vision training will become a tremendous asset for each athlete and it will help to enhance their game on the field.”
Kurt Andrews, MAT, LAT, ATC, PES, CES, Director of Sports Medicine, Head Athletic Trainer for Sporting KC
Additionally, Sporting KC offers Youth Soccer Camps and Programs that are designed to meet players where they are in terms of development. Camps and supplemental training programs are offered to players of varying ages and abilities throughout the year.
“Learning can occur at any age in life. Young athletes hold a greater opportunity to expand their learning threshold alongside their physical capabilities. We have observed a direct connection between academic success and excelled sports performance when vision training is incorporated in to a young athlete’s development.”
Adam Cegielski, CEO of Eyecarrot Innovations Corp
Eyecarrot Innovations Corp looks forward to fostering a longstanding partnership with Sporting Kansas City and its various athlete development initiatives.
