A review of the literature reveals that athletes have better visual skills than non-athletes and that these skills can be improved with visual training. This study was an attempt to determine if visual skills enhanced through visual training transferred directly to athletic performance. Pre and post-training visual and basket-shooting skills were measured on twelve college women basketball players. No significant difference was found between pre and posttraining basket shooting skills. Uncontrolled variables and suggestions for further investigation are discussed.
