Reaction Activity

Reaction Activity

Video features Singapore National Water Polo Men's Team. The ability to react fast is an important trait for athletes in most sports. Hence, it might be useful to include reaction training in an athlete's routine to keep the mind sharp. Activity #1 (0:40) works to improve athletes' ability to respond to auditory cues, and to react appropriately. Activity #2 (1:56) is adopted from the Stroop Colour & Word Test, which challenges athletes' ability to overcome cognitive interference, to process and still achieve an appropriate outcome. Activity #3 (4:12) incorporates the elements of reactivity and quickness, on top of the cognitive task (in Activity #2).
