PEP Gear is the future of player development

R.C.T. Gear

The PEP Intelligent R.C.T. Gear is a major advancement in Hockey Testing. 

Consistent, performance proven testing protocols have been developed to acquire data of real game situational skills that have never been captured before.  No hockey company in the world has the TESTING capabilities like the Intelligent R.C.T. Gear.

One Intelligent R.C.T. Gear has 17 player/puck tracking sensors as well as additional tracking sensors on 9 various passing angles (up to 3 sequential)

Unique Data Collection

Unlimited data

Testing a player’s performance must be as specific to the game demands as possible and PEP’s Reactive Countering tests are doing just that by evaluating real movements essential for real game situations

PEP’s innovative testing protocol and Intelligent R.C.T. Gear mark the reaction times and movement speed of the player via inches.  

80 performance
data points

The Intelligent R.C.T. GEAR is the first training/testing equipment of its kind to collect up to 80 performance-data points in a Patented sequence. (Current testing companies gather only 2-3 data points without collecting sequential data). 

Designed for today's game

Traditional Testing Lacks Cognitive Demand

Cognitive elements are a key part of the game that require response actions. Having the ability to make quick decisions and execute multiple skills simultaneously is one of many performance predictors identified by Reactive Countering Testing.

Maximize Training Potential

Reactive Countering™ Speed

(One of 7- R.C.T. Tests)

Reactive Countering Speed test measures the players ability to react to the “Intelligent R.C.T.  Gear” as fast as possible, while simultaneously countering multiple reaction and puck placement points. The athlete’s reaction and counter movement time provides valuable data effecting on-ice performance (both deficiencies and strengths). 

This allows the PEP certified trainer to identify the individual factors that are limiting the performance of the player and implement the appropriate training curriculum to assist the player’s development goals.

Reactive Countering™ testing methods are being used to identify and develop the next generation of elite hockey talent.
