Why TAP?

Efrain Sanchez, TAP Director

We talked with our performance coaches and many of our current athletes and asked what their ideal performance program would look like. There were many important factors that we heard.

First, they wanted high-level training that was made specifically for them. Many of our MLB guys talk highly of their hitting and position-specific coaches, but believe there is a huge lack of quality and individualization throughout their off-season and in-season program.

Same goes for our college athletes, they like lifting and training with their team, but their workouts are written for the masses, and not the individual.

This is something we are able to provide, athletes get to workout with each, in a high energy setting, while still working on their individualized program. Along with this comes quality and repeatable modes of analyzing performance and body composition.

Secondly, all of the athletes wanted high-level resources for recovery. Pacific Sports Spa has some of the most elite recovery technologies in the world. With NormaTec compression sleeves, GameReady, NovoTHOR, and a HydroWorx underwater treadmill. These recovery tools allow athletes to stay healthy and bounce back quicker from workouts and games.

Lastly are the aspects of athletic performance that people often don’t think about, but they know they can help them. They would like to work on proper nutrition, improving the mental and leadership aspects of athletics, and extremely important but rarely trained in athletic vision.

These are the parts of training that excited the athletes we interviewed the most. These underutilized factors of performance are often the difference between success and failure.

The Senaptec Sensory Station is a state-of-the-art sensory evaluation and training device designed to assess the visual and sensory performance of the modern athlete. Each athlete is tested on 10 sport-relevant visual and sensory performance skills using a custom app that communicates directly with high definition and touch screen monitors integrated within the unit. Individual results can be compared instantly to our athlete performance database by position, sport and competition level to produce a customized Senaptec Sensory Performance Profile.
