Developmental Changes in the Movement Characteristics of the Punt--A Case Study.
Punting characteristics of a subject were studied over an 8-year period. Performances were recorded from the age of 2 years 9 months through 11 years 4 months. Fifteen film records were made at 3-month intervals through ages 3 and 4, at 6-month intervals through ages 6 and 7, and at 1-year intervals through ages 8 to 11. Movement characteristics studied included the steps in the approach to the kick, the release of the ball, arm and leg action, trunk action, timing relationships between segment actions, angular velocities of the thigh and knee, and variability of the traits at various age levels. Four levels of development were tentatively identified on the basis of the observed changes in movement characteristics. (Author/JB)
