Abstract

The study was conducted on a sample of 51 male respondents, members of school sports sections of athletes (N = 15), basketball players (N = 21) from Novi Sad elementary school "Zarko Zrenjanin" and students (N = 15) of the Novi Sad school who do not practice sports, ages 11-12. Measurement of morphological characteristics and motor abilities was performed on them. Using multivariate analysis of variance, it was found that there were statistically significant differences in morphological and motor space. Individual analyzes revealed differences in the medium circumference of forearm, standing long jum, backwardsobstacle course and wide legged seated forwardvariables. The results of the Bonferoni comparison confirmed the existence of significant differences in the medium circumference of forearm variable, between athlete and student in favor of athlete and basketball player and student in favor of basketball player, and that there are significant differences between athletes attending school sports sections and non-sports students in favor of groups of athletes and basketball players, and between the athletic and basketball section students, there are significant differences in the backwards obstacle course and wide legged seated forward variables in favor of the athletic group. Directed physical activity contributes to a greater degree of development of the motor skills of the students who practice them.
