Striking and fielding

My Strengths

The striking strategies I was able to effectively demonstrate during the games we played were being side on, good stance and eyes on the ball

The throwing and catching strategies I was able to effectively demonstrate during the games we played were doing the cup or reverse cup when I could

My Next Steps

To improve my striking of a ball I need to not do the pull shot and remember that I'm not using a cricket bat because we need to hit the ball in a V and the tennis racket is a lot different to a cricket bat


To Improve my catching and fielding I need to I need to judge the ball better because a tennis ball moves differently to a cricket ball


The game that I enjoyed the most was round the bases because it was easier and the rules were better

Overall the evidence for this side is weak because Most of these points are opinions that a group of people agree on because they want the flag to be changed.



Overall the evidence for this side is strong because most of these statements are more factual as they’re common knowledge.
