indent Abstract
Motor status is an important predictor of physical activity participation among prepubescent aged children. The aim of the present study was to present gender differences in the level of motor abilities among children of prepubescent age. In that regard a reduced “Eurofit” test battery was carried out (Committee of Experts on sports Research, 1988), which consisted of 5 motor tests: hand tap, standing broad jump, running cone drill 10x5m, sit-and-reach and sit-ups for 30 seconds. 420 students of both genders ages 7-9 years participated in this research study. The results of this research indicate that boys have achieved statistically significant better results in the following tests: standing broad jump and running cone drill 10x5m, whilst the girls have achieved better results in sit-and-reach test. No statistically significant differences between genders have been observed in the remaining variables that represent the level of motor ability.
