Closed: A motor skill in which performers must coordinate their movements with a predictable, usually stationary environment. (Batting, Pitching)
Open: A motor skill in which performers must coordinate their movements with an unpredictable, usually moving, environment. (Football, Hockey)
What is the difference between Closed skill and Open skill
Quality: Experiences that engage us in the most critical components of an activity are most likely to lead to increases in our capacity to perform that activity.
Quantity: When all other factors are equal, increasing the frequency of our engagement with the critical components of an activity usually leads to increases in our capacity to perform that activity.
