This research aimed to determine the influence of learning models and general motor ability on the study outcomes of student's athletic skills. This investigation was conducted in Indonesia by collecting samples from first semester students at the Department of Physical, Health, and Recreation Education, Universitas Pendidikan Ganesha, using a simple random sampling technique. Therefore, a total of 88 people were selected, and experimental treatment with level 2x2 design was used. The data obtained were evaluated using analysis of variance, and the results showed: (1) higher performance amongst students using the Bandura observational model compared to those using the conventional approach, (2) the interaction between learning models and general motor ability influence the acquisition of athletic skills, (3) the advantage in students with generally high motor ability, and (4) a contrary outcome was reported for those with low abilities. Therefore, Bandura's observational learning model has a positive influence on student's athletic skills.
