Goal Directed Each skill has a predetermined objective at the beginning of the movement. Consistent The phrase 'maximum certainty' is a key element, reflecting the ability of the performer to repeat the skill despite differing environmental conditions. Efficient The actions are performed with coordination and precision using the required amount of energy necessary. Fluent The actions appear to flow naturally rather than forced, with good balance and timing. Recognisable The skill is instantly recognisable and its execution can be compared to other performers, allowing an analysis of performance to occur. Aesthetic The execution of the skill is pleasing to observe, appearing controlled and effective within the context of the situation.

Examples include devising appropriate strategies and tactics to outwit an opponent and calculating scores. Motor Skills that involve physical movement and muscular control linked to a specific objective. Examples include high jump and badminton serves.

The skills require constant adjustment to suit the situation. The skills are perceptual and involve decision making. They are usually externally-paced. Decisions need to be made quickly. Closed skills are not directly affected by the environment because The environment is stable and constant. The environment is predictable. The skills can be repeated consistently when learned or habitual. The skills are pre-learned in a set routine and require minimal adjustment. They are usually self-paced. Decisions are pre-planned.
1.2.2 Gross/Fine Continuum
