BUILDING MLB & NCAA D1 PLAYERS AND TEAMS
REACHING THE TOP
“S2 Cognition is an invaluable tool that allows me and my coaching staff to get a detailed, inside look at how our players process information and make split-second decisions. Knowing each player’s cognitive skills helps us better understand why they excel and struggle in certain situations so that we can best develop their talents and individualize their development.”
Tim Corbin, 2019 NCAA Division I National Champion Head Coach from Vanderbilt University
TRAIN SMARTER DECISIONS WITH S2
The S2 Eval helps coaches identify their players' split-second decision skills and build more effective training programs. We don’t use complex devices or equipment — just scientifically proven digital testing and smarter ideas for working cognitive skills on the field.
HOW IT WORKS...
TAKE THE S2 EVAL
Athletes perform a 30-45-minute evaluation on a specialized laptop computer that measures how they process and make split-second decisions in their sport.
GET YOUR S2 SCORE REPORT
Results are instantly revealed in a detailed report featuring the individual scores of the athlete’s abilities – analyzing each of their strengths and weaknesses, along with their overall S2 Score.
The S2 Eval unlocks your decision skills & training tactics that are used by youth organizations and by top NCAA & MLB teams to improve their hitters’ split-second decisions in the box.
SAMPLE BASEBALL REPORT
Below is a sample chart from the baseball report featuring the percentile ranking of an athlete’s individual skill sets, which equates to their S2 Score total (in orange). The bottom of the chart indicates how the athlete’s scores compare to other athletes in their reference group.

S2 PLAYER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING
S2 provides baseball cognitive skills training tactics for players designed to raise their performance level.
In less than half a second, a hitter must recognize the pitch, anticipate where it will cross the plate, decide to swing or take, and time the swing to smash the ball. S2 helps you train these decisions. The S2 Eval is used by MLB teams and top collegiate baseball and softball programs to understand their athletes’ split-second decision skills and build individualized training plans. S2 helps their players make faster, better decisions in the box.

PROVEN RESULTS WITH S2
S2 conducted training programs with groups of 40 elite high school hitters to improve contact rates and reduce chase rates. Athletes took a challenging hitting test (pre-test), completed 4 weeks of hitting drills focused on timing or chase decisions, and then retook the challenging hitting test (post-test).
Results of hitters swing timing decisions showed statistically lower miss rates, higher contact rates, and improved hard contact.
Results of hitters ability to control their impulses, swinging at pitches out of the strike zone showed statistically reduced chase rates.
Austin Nola has developed his game with S2. He has learned his strengths and weakness and implemented S2's hitting drills to build his game through the 2016-2020 MLB seasons.
