Coordination

kow · or · duh · nay · shn

Coordination is your ability to take separate patterns of movement and “coordinate” them into one mega-movement. The more accurate you coordinate your actions accurately, the better you accomplish your task your trying to perform.

Skill Building

Coordination building can be any activity that requires you to land a target with precision based on a specific movement. Whether if it's hopping to specific spots, hitting in object with anticipation, etc.

Benefit

Coordination allows you to reduce the likelihood of accidents. This skill goes hand in hand with balancing because it requires your body to coordinate with the center of gravity in order to prevent falling. If you did fall down, the skill of coordination will help you catch yourself and increase the chances of landing safely. Another benefit is getting better accuracy when landing projectiles such as throwing darts, passing a soccer ball to a teammate, or hitting the baseball with a bat accurately.

Avoid

  • Avoid being sedentary. If you sit around all day or lack movement, it can reduce your coordination.

Life Improvements

  • You’ll have better technique and form during exercise. 
  • Your memory will improve and so will your concentration allowing you to do better in school.
  • Your abilities to coordinate your body will be more aligned with your actions. For example, your hand-eye coordination will allow you to juggle hammers without failure.
