Virtual Reality Games
Virtual reality games integrate core cognitive skills in an immersive, multisensory experience that simulates dynamic competitive environments
A self-guided assessment sets your baseline and initial training levels. You'll be re-assessed at regular intervals so you can track your improvement
Track all of your performance stats from the VR games and tablet exercises through the integrated dashboard
You'll start the program by going through an initial assessment to establish your baseline performance. This is a self-guided process using the Oculus and tablet. Based on your assessment, you'll be prescribed a training regimen that uses adaptive learning technology to level up as your performance improves. You will be re-assessed at regular intervals throughout the program so you can measure your progress.
Weekly Training Sessions
Duration and repetition are critical to Mastermind’s success. To maximize your results, train for 40 to 45 minutes (split between the VR and tablet) at least three times per week. As a Mastermind member, you'll have access to up to 7 sessions each week. Every day you knock out your recommended exercises, you'll unlock freestyle mode that allows self-directed training and exploration.
As you train, you'll be able to monitor performance as you progress through the program. The leaderboard will show your improvement and how you measure up against other athletes. Access all of your performance data through the app dashboard.
Frequently Asked Questions
If there is room for improvement, cognitive training can help. Mastermind Sports can help kids ages 10+ who are just learning their sport as well as professional athletes trying to gain an edge.
Our individual memberships do not include equipment. To train with Mastermind, you’ll need an Oculus headset and a tablet device running either iOS or Android operating systems.
Our brains have the ability to change based on new experiences throughout life. This is called Neuroplasticity. Mastermind uses principles of neuroplasticity to strengthen and form new pathways in the brain that target foundational skills. The games and exercises in our program have the intensity, duration, and repetition required to optimize the neural pathways that help athletes achieve peak performance.
Cognitive training for sports has been around for years in manual or rudimentary forms and is used widely at the professional level. Mastermind’s mission is to bring the power of cognition training to every athlete.
Members have reported improvement across all the skills we focus on in their particular sport. A by-product of improved cognitive skill sets includes reported improvement in confidence and consistency in their in-game performance.
Mastermind is designed to complement your physical and sport-specific training. By working your cognitive processing skills you create a stronger brain-body connection enabling you to raise your maximum performance ceiling.
Mastermind cognitive training drives skills that go beyond sport including improved focus and attention, working memory, and general cognitive processing. Our member athletes have independently reported improved performance and engagement in school, work, and their personal life.
