Riley has demonstrated a high level of competence in the fundamental movement skills of kicking and dodging. Good control and coordination of most actions is evident. In kicking, Riley focuses on the ball and positions his non-kicking foot correctly.  He demonstrates the ability to kick with his non-dominant foot but seems off balance at times, and a shortened follow-through detracts from the power of the kick. In dodging, Riley is well balanced, confidently transfers his body weight, uses his arms effectively and demonstrates good footwork.
