Tennis Tutor

The Tennis Tutor is a machine designed to improve cadets' focus and quick decision-making skills. By launching white and yellow tennis balls, cadets are required to catch them with both hands and eventually with one hand each. Cadets looking to improve their attention, hand-eye coordination, and self-talk can benefit greatly from this training tool.

Egg Chairs

Designed for peak relaxation and energy recovery, Egg Chairs can help reduce stress and fatigue levels in cadets. Cadets can sit in them up to 17 minutes per session. While sitting in the chair, cadets can listen to different scripts on an iPad to enhance their experience that meet their individual needs.

Reflextion Board

With its customizable drills, the Reflexion Board is a high-tech training tool that helps improve cadets' focus, attention, decision-making, and peripheral vision. Through touch and interaction with the board, cadets can enhance their cognitive and physical abilities.

Virtual Reality (VR)

Virtual Reality is a training tool that provides a realistic experience of various training courses, such as IOCT, Survival Swim, and Cadet Field Training. By using VR glasses, cadets can see what to expect in each course through the lens of a cadet successfully completing the training. This tool helps prepare cadets mentally and physically for the challenges of each course.
