Other Work Samples for:

Lou has demonstrated a high level of competence in the fundamental movement skills of kicking and dodging. Good control and coordination is evident in most actions but the kicking skills are stronger than the dodging. In kicking, Lou watches the ball well, uses the correct instep technique and makes good contact with the ball. The non-kicking foot is placed beside the ball, the knees are bent and the action is followed through. The dodging is not consistent on each side. Lou is able to change direction but tends to take multiple small steps to change course rather than push off the outside foot.
