I’ve been mildly obsessed with vision training after Trevor Tierney presented the topic of the ‘quiet eye’ for lacrosse goalies in the Lacrosse Goalie Summit. Here’s the Tierney coaching session (for those who purchased the VIP pass only).
Part of my research led me to Dr. Robert Buonfiglio who has spent time working with professional lacrosse players. Specifically with the Boston Cannons when Coach Bill Daye was at the helm.
Dr. Robert Buonfiglio is an optometrist in the Boston area, working in the area of Sports Vision Training – testing and improving the visual skills of athletes, with the goal of improving on-field performance.
Dr. Buonfiglio also wrote a couple of great articles on Inside Lacrosse on the topic:
Lacrosse is my passion! The game has given me so much and this blog is my way of giving back to the lax community. Specifically the most bad a$$ part of that community - the goalies! After learning to play goalie from scratch, I wanted to create a site where I could share what I learned with others so they too can become champions in the crease and in life.
