Other Work Samples for:

Pat has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in the fundamental movement skills of kicking and dodging. In kicking, Pat’s foot placement is not always correct, resulting in the ball becoming airborne rather than travelling along the ground. Some bending of the kicking leg is evident but Pat’s eyes are not focused on the ball throughout the kick and there is a lack of power in the movement. The follow-through is inconsistent and Pat would benefit from gaining control of the ball before kicking. The last dodge was well executed and the kicking was generally better when on the run but the demonstration of both skills is inconsistent. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard at the end of Stage 3.
