Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The cue "watch the hips" is a helpful cue when teaching

    • A.

      Chasing.

    • B.

      Fleeing.

    • C.

      Dodging.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    • E.

      Both A and C.

    Correct Answer
    A. Chasing.
    Explanation
    The cue "watch the hips" is a helpful cue when teaching chasing because it helps the person to focus on the movements of the hips of the person or object they are chasing. By watching the hips, they can anticipate the direction and speed of the chase, allowing them to adjust their own movements accordingly. This cue is not as relevant for fleeing or dodging, as the focus is more on the person's own movements rather than those of the person or object they are trying to avoid. Therefore, the correct answer is chasing.

    Children should think of jumping as three successive phases:

    • A.

      Beginning stance- Flight phase- Ending stance

    • B.

      Precontrol- Control- Utilization

    • C.

      Beginning- Intermediate- Mature

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    D. Takeoff- Flight- Landing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Takeoff- Flight- Landing". This sequence accurately describes the three phases of jumping. Takeoff refers to the initial movement where the feet leave the ground, Flight is the phase where the body is in the air, and Landing is the final phase where the feet touch the ground again. This progression is commonly used to teach and analyze jumping techniques in various sports and activities.

    Another skill theme that is probably most closely related to successful weight transference is

    • A.

      Balancing.

    • B.

      Jumping and Landing.

    • C.

      Traveling.

    • E.

      Kicking and Punting.

    Correct Answer
    A. Balancing.
    Explanation
    Balancing is the skill theme that is most closely related to successful weight transference. When balancing, individuals must distribute their weight evenly and make adjustments to maintain stability. This requires shifting weight from one foot to another or from one body part to another. Weight transference is an essential component of balancing as it allows individuals to maintain control and equilibrium. Therefore, balancing is the skill theme that is most closely related to successful weight transference.

    Important cues for overhand throw include

    • A.

      Side to target.

    • B.

      Arm way back.

    • C.

      Step with opposite foot.

    • D.

      Follow through.

    • E.

      All the above.

    Correct Answer
    E. All the above.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All the above" because all of the mentioned cues are important for an overhand throw. To accurately throw an object, one needs to align their side with the target, pull their arm way back to generate power, step forward with the opposite foot for balance and momentum, and complete the throw with a follow-through motion. All of these cues work together to ensure a successful overhand throw.

The cues listed in the options (crab fingers, flat surface, extend to target, quick feet) are all appropriate for volleying at the control level, so the correct answer is that all of the above cues are appropriate.

    When striking with paddles and rackets, the most difficult object to strike of the five objects listed is

    • A.

      "live" tennis balls.

    • B.

      Volleybirds.

    • C.

      Foam balls.

    • D.

      Balloons.

    • E.

      Ping-Pong balls.

    Correct Answer
    C. Foam balls.
    Explanation
    The most difficult object to strike among the five listed options is foam balls. This is because foam balls have a soft and lightweight texture, making it challenging to hit them accurately with paddles and rackets. On the other hand, "live" tennis balls, Volleybirds, balloons, and Ping-Pong balls have a more solid and predictable bounce, making them easier to strike.
