OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – The days of just being in top-notch physical shape to compete in sport are long gone.

The way technology has advanced has allowed athletes to learn to train their brains and become stronger mentally as well.

It’s happening in the Omaha metro.

The Gretna Elite Academy’s United Women’s Soccer Club has been using NeuroTrainer this summer and are seeing positive results.

“Everyone thinks you have to physically out-compete your opponent, but also a lot of times its more mentally,” Nebraska Women’s Soccer player Kenzie Coons said. “So, I think with this I definitely have more awareness of what’s going on around me.”

Grand Canyon University forward Lindsey Prokop believes the mental training of her brain has made her more assertive on the field.

“I’ve taken a lot more shots and take players one on one more,” Prokop said. “I think it’s my decision making that’s changed a lot and I’ve scored like seven goals in six games.”
