factor affecting performance and motor skills

simple skills a skill that is straight forward, requires little concentration and ability. e.g. jumping
complex skills a complex skill involves a large attention span because they are practiced ingraining repeatedly to make it easier to perform in completion
age & maturity a child must have the ability to visually track moving objects before they can possibly catch a ball
previous experiences involvement in games and activities that allow kids to develop skills similar to those needed for more advanced physical activities.
motivation & desire in early childhood development, the concept of "physical education" is associated with play. interest and excitement can easily be generated in kids and adults by keeping activities new and challenging.
level of fitness children who can resist fatigue and sustain the rigours of physical activity are much more likely to succeed at an early age. the longer you can practice or participate in an activity the more success you will achieve. Success leads to enjoyment.
perceived ability because children mature at different rates, don't assume they are all the same ability levels. If a child is forced to try and learn physical or mental skills before they are ready, frustration and withdrawal are often the result.
