Today marks the day we are finally able to present the new Sense Arena for Players to you! We have brought our original platform to Oculus Quest 2 headsets to make it more available to everyone!
Based on the feedback from hundreds of Sense Arena users and coaches, we have upgraded the concept
to drills that teach small area decision-making in different game situations and help improve overall hockey sense. You are now able to experience low-impact, high-intensity training at home, or almost anywhere else you would like. All you need is a little bit of space, our Haptic Stick Mount to attach the controller to your own stick, and a smooth low-friction surface to operate properly. The For Players platform is the only way to get thousands of off-ice reps in and is nothing like what you have experienced in hockey training before.
THE MAIN BENEFITS OF THE PLATFORM ARE:
- Improvement in your SMALL AREA DECISION-MAKING skills
- Advanced PLAY TRACKING
- Faster REACTION TIME
- The ability to 3D Replay different gameplay situations and players’ reactions
- Practice according to TRAINING PLANS of some of the top players and coaches around the world
- The only way to get THOUSAND OF REPETITIONS outside the ice rink
Practice makes perfect and that is exactly what you get!
There are also some features that were upgraded for the HTC Vive devices and will be a staple on the Oculus Quest 2 devices:
30+ NEW DRILLS FOR PLAYERS
There are so many new drills we cannot even list them all on here. There are new scenarios in the offensive, defensive and neutral zones as well as many other skill development drills.
3D REPLAY FEATURE
Introducing a feature we really love on the goalies platform, the 3D Replay allows you and the players to see the drills from a different perspective.
NEW USER INTERFACE
We have improved the Sense Arena menu to make everything more accessible - fewer clicks and easier recognition of the drills by adding playbook schemes to all of them.
DECISION-MAKING EFFICIENCY DIAGNOSTICS
We upgraded the Diagnostics module for players and selected drills to assess players' Reaction Times, Release Times, Passing lane Efficiency, Player Tracking, and Peripheral Vision. The Diagnostic forces the player to use his/her cognitive skills instead of recognizing a pattern.
RECOMMENDED TRAINING PLANS
We have added 10 training plans with 3 difficulty levels for the players and 4 training plans with 3 difficulty levels for the goalies. These training plans are designed to help all users improve across the main skills measured in Sense Arena. You can also use these as inspiration when creating your own training plans.
CUSTOM TRAINING PLANS
The era of remote training has just begun! Our business customers will now be able to create their own personalized training plans for their goalies and players and "push" them to their own headsets. No matter whether they are in Alberta, Australia, or Finland!
We feel like these details sound exciting! Don’t you? Now it’s on you to go ahead and try Sense Arena for Players on Oculus 2, too!
