PLOS ONE: Two Types of Motor Strategy for Accurate Dart Throwing

http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0088536

“In general, the most optimal way to improve throwing accuracy and precision is to reduce movement and timing variability. The results of the current study indicate that shaping the hand trajectory to follow a complementary pattern may be as effective as reducing variability. Learners and coaches that understand this concept could utilize it in improving accuracy. Moreover, it should also be noted that the most beneficial strategy may change in response to the characteristics of the task and the individual.”
