Coordination

Description

Getting different parts of your body to work together to move in the pattern wanted.

Planning the Movement

  • Timing the movement 
  • Think/predict what to do 
  • React to a situation if different from what you predicted

Bilateral coordination

  • To use both sides of the body together 
  • Can be a symmetrical movement (star jumps) 
  • Can be an alternating movement (walking)

Hand Eye coordination

  • Eyes guide the hands to complete movement (catching, striking)

Coordinated movements start in your large muscles groups and move into your smaller muscle groups working together for a fluid motion!
