Toronto Football Club’s MIchael Rabasca talks about Muse: the brain sensing headband


most academies most soccer organizations look at players in a very limited way with very limited scope. My name is Michael Rabasca I work with Toronto FC – Director of High Performance. When we were exploring meditation there was a hesitancy within our program because of how do you know if someone is meditating. We have young men and they need feedback and they need to know what they’re doing is purposeful and meaningful and when we were doing our research Muse was one of those products that just stood out to us. We felt that being able to demonstrate to them that they were in a calm zone that they were at a point where they were focused and ready to perform in games being able to show them that feedback on screen was very important to us were able to immediately make that leap and be able to say this is what your experience on the field and our pro athletes we have several of them who are now taking to wearing the device about an hour-and-a-half / 90 minutes before a match and they will meditate from anywhere from 12 to 20 minutes. It’s just been a marvelous experience for Academy athletes when it comes to building this skill that will benefit them of course on the field which were primarily interested in but of course in life in the classroom. What they have to deal with on a day-to-day basis is very important to us
