Why do I need HockeyVue if I can look up without it?

Have you ever heard your coach yell at you or your teammates to look up? That’s because players look down at the puck subconsciously to ensure that they have control of it, but they don’t look up subconsciously because it’s more comfortable to look down.

HockeyVue’s soft LED constantly reminds you to look up and is less annoying or pressuring than a coach yelling at you. As you train with HockeyVue consistently, you will primarily develop two skills: 1) you’ll build a habit of looking up immediately after looking down and 2) you’ll be comfortable with controlling the puck in your peripheral vision. These two skills are instrumental in becoming a “heads up” hockey player.

Can I use HockeyVue for off-ice practice?

Yes, HockeyVue can be used during off-ice practice if you are wearing your helmet during practice or if you are wearing a hat or visor with the Off-Ice Attachment. Switch HockeyVue into "buzzer mode" and it will beep whenever you look down past the customizable calibration angle.

Will HockeyVue be compatible with my helmet?

HockeyVue is compatible with helmets of all models and sizes but it can only be attached to wire cage facemasks. HockeyVue is not compatible with visors, full shield, or hybrid shield facemasks.

Where should I attach my HockeyVue?

HockeyVue must be attached to the right side of the helmet to function properly. You can decide how low or high you want to position the HockeyVue on your facemask. The majority of players prefer to attach the HockeyVue to the top right corner of their helmet.

What are the TIME modes?

HockeyVue’s 3 integrated TIME modes allow you to configure how much time you want between looking down and looking up before the light alerts you (0 seconds, 1 second, 2 seconds).

This can be useful for a player who may need more time to look up after looking down since he will have more time to do so before the light alerts him. Or, it can be useful for a player who is trying to build a habit of subconsciously looking up since she will have a short amount of time to look up without having to be alerted by the light.

Will HockeyVue block my vision?

We prioritized designing the product to be unnoticeable to the player. If attached to the right-most part of the facemask, the device can barely be seen even in your peripheral vision. HockeyVue will not impede you when you are skating or surveying the ice during drills or scrimmages. However, don't use HockeyVue during games!

How bright is HockeyVue’s light?

HockeyVue’s light disperses so that it’s not too bright in any one spot. It’s bright enough for you to realize that you’re looking down but dim enough to not bother your play.

What age/level is it best to use HockeyVue?

It all depends on the skills that a player possesses. Once a player can skate comfortably, stickhandle, and move the puck while skating, he/she can benefit from using HockeyVue. Ideally, the player should be able to fully control the puck while skating (even if looking down) to get the maximum benefit from HockeyVue.

How long will HockeyVue’s battery last?

HockeyVue has a 13-hour battery capacity. It can be powered on and used for 13 hours before dying.

What charging cable does HockeyVue use?

HockeyVue can be charged with any standard USB 3.0 Micro B charger.
