Abstract

Among the topics connected with sport in childhood, special attention is devoted to the relationships between motor performance, growth, and development. The problem of how instense the training stress of a young trainee should be is intimately associated with the structure of performance components. Interrelations between motor abilities and the role of physique are not yet fully clear for the period around puberty. Multi-faceted test batteries promise success in this field, particularly when combined with multivariate analysis.
