Since beginning to work with Dr.LaPlaca in the summer of 2019, it has allowed me to add another big asset to my training program. He has taken a lot of time to develop various training methods and exercises to help me be able to track the puck and be able to process things faster.
Being a hockey goalie and being able to see and follow the puck is the biggest thing and since starting with Dr.LaPlaca I have seen great improvement in my overall vision, reaction skills, and cognitive training.
I would recommend Dr.LaPlaca to any other goalie or team that is looking to improve themselves and train something that most people aren’t worried about training, because there is more to sports than just the physical training. I look forward to continuing to work with Dr. LaPlaca as I make the step to Division 1 hockey and potentially into the pro ranks.
Thank you to Dr. LaPlaca for helping me keep my vision and cognitive training up to speed in these trying times. When everything hopefully returns to normal, I'll be right where I was (or better) with tracking the puck and players on the ice."

“Dr LaPlaca has changed the way my son sees the world! Racing is Ryan’s passion, and it seemed that he hit a plateau with his progression in the sport. Ryan was also diagnosed with ADHD, and while entering 4th grade this year, we were told this would be the toughest year yet. After only a few months of Vision Training, the growth of his ability to see and process things has been enormous. Not only has the training helped his reaction time and on track abilities, Ryan has raised his GPA to 3.8! He is now able to focus on his schoolwork and his reading level has risen tremendously. I believe the vision/neurocognitive training, Dr. LaPlaca has developed, is helping us beat ADHD!”

“At the professional level, we are always looking to find areas that can be targeted for improvement. Just as we can fine-tune the body for physical gains that can lead to enhanced performance on the field, similar benefits can be found from fine-tuning the eyes and brain to improve vision and decision making on the field.
Our goalkeepers work weekly on hand-eye coordination, reaction, and cognitive processing exercises within a goalkeeping framework. The integration of technology means that we get quantifiable data that allows us to chart development and tailor development plans for each individual player.
I would recommend Dr. LaPlaca for any team or individual looking to find an edge to help improve their game. Any sport of position that requires swift decision making and visual acuity would benefit from his expertise.”
