How is hand-eye coordination used in sport?

In this lesson, we will explore how processing of visual input can guide hand and arm movement to help with reaching and grasping in sport. We will apply this to a number of invasion games focusing primarily on netball and basketball. We will also introduce you to different passing techniques that can be used in these sports. 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.
