Motor skills refer to a child's gross motor abilities and overall coordination. Children with poor gross motor skills are usually clumsy, and may not be as good as other children in some sports activities such as throwing and catching. Proper development of gross motor skills is important since our fine motor skills, such as eye-hand coordination, and eye tracking, develop from properly developed gross motor skills.
