Haley has demonstrated a very high level of competence in the fundamental movement skills of overarm throwing and catching. Strong control is evident in all aspects of the skills. When throwing, Haley takes a side-on stance, rotates from the hip and follows through for accuracy and power. To take a catch, Haley successfully moves his body into position behind the ball. These skills can be effectively applied to a game situation as demonstrated by the quick recovery of the rolling ball on the ground and transfer to a fluent throwing motion.
