Mini-Quiz: Concentrating on a High Velocity Ball

by Ron Kurtus (revised 10 June 2005)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Can you anticipate where the ball is going by watching body motion?

Yes, because the opponent's body tells where the ball is going

No, because the opponent may fake where he is directing the ball

It depends on the sport

2. What effect can spin have on a ball?

In some sports, it can make the ball's motion curve

In most sports, it makes the ball go faster

In some sports, it can make the ball hard to see

3. Should you watch the ball as you hit it?

Not if you can help it

It is impossible to do

It is worth trying

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Sports Knowledge. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
