How is decision-making used in sport?

In this lesson, we will continue to develop our movement patterns and learn how to make the correct choice of movement based on the situation the performer is in. We will learn how basic positioning and prediction of flight paths can increase successful outcomes in sport. We will apply this to net games focussing primarily on volleyball. Please note this lesson will require some physical exercise and additional equipment, beyond a pen, pencil or paper. Please see the equipment slide near the start of the lesson video and make sure your child is adequately supervised when equipment is required. Parents and carers are responsible for ensuring that children follow the correct safety advice provided at the start of this lesson and the instructions the teacher gives during the lesson. Parents and carers are responsible for supervising activities where required and for seeking medical advice in advance if your child has a medical condition that may prevent them taking part in physical activity.
