Why do I need SportVue 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.

SportVue’s soft LED constantly reminds you to look up. When players first use SportVue, they are surprised to find out how often they are looking down at the puck. As you train with SportVue consistently, you will primarily develop two skills: 1) you’ll build a habit of looking up 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 SportVue for off-ice practice?

Yes, SportVue can be used during off-ice practice with the Off-Ice Attachment. The Off-Ice Attachment allows you to clip your SportVue onto any hat or visor to train heads-up off the ice. Simply slide the attachment onto your hat, switch your SportVue into “buzzer mode,” and you’re good to go! SportVue will then beep whenever you look down past the customizable calibration angle.

Will SportVue be compatible with my helmet?

SportVue is compatible with helmets of all models and sizes. SportVue is compatible with wire/cage facemasks, visors, full shield, and hybrid shield facemasks. We have two different models of SportVue for cage facemasks and visor shields. Please specify your facemask type on the product page.

Where should I attach my SportVue?

We recommend that you attach SportVue to the right side of your helmet, but it will function properly on the left or right side. You can decide how low or high you want to position the SportVue on your facemask. The majority of players prefer to attach SportVue to the top right corner of their helmet. Please see the product page for an example image.

What are the TIME modes?

SportVue’s 2 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 and 0.5 seconds). 

This can be useful for players who want to build a habit of looking up without having to be reminded by the light, or for catching passes where a player can look down momentarily and then look up right away without being reminded by the light.

Will SportVue block my vision?

This is the most common concern that we receive. If attached to the right-most part of the facemask, SportVue can barely be seen. It is slightly visible in your peripheral vision. We have done demos with 100+ players and less than 10% say that SportVue blocks their vision. Some players who don’t like to see the light when they look down say that it is distracting.

How bright is SportVue's light?

We have adjusted the light brightness after doing demos with 100+ players and getting their feedback. Players say that the light is bright enough for them to realize that they are looking down but not so bright that it is blinding.

What age/level is it best to use SportVue?

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 SportVue. Ideally, the player should be able to look down and fully control the puck while skating to get the maximum benefit from SportVue.

How long will SportVue’s battery last?

SportVue has a battery life of 16 hours and it is rechargable with a USB 3.0 Micro B cable that is included with your purchase.
