Alex has demonstrated a high level of competence in the fundamental movement skills of overarm throwing and catching. Good control is evident in most aspects of the skills. Alex has a relaxed throwing style which includes focusing on the target, standing side-on and rotating the hips but he tends to over-rotate the shoulder and does not lead with the elbow of the throwing arm.
