The aim of this study was to assess the trends and the different variability of performances in 6 coordinative tests of Movement Differentiation Ability (MTA). 1470 males and 692 females, 11 to 14 years old, practising 30 different sports, were involved in the study. The performed test were: handgrip with 2 hands and dynamometry of leg extensor muscles, standing long jump, basketball sitting throw, and 60-m speed. After determining the maximal performance, sub-maximal trials equal to the 75% of the maximal were required to the subjects. The results showed that in the dynamometric trials the subjects were more accurate, while in the speed test the actual sub-maximal performance was very different compared to the target. The trends of the 10th, 50th and 90th percentile showed a peculiar outcome for each kind of trial. In conclusion, each MTA test presents developmental trends differing from the others, and from the other coordinative abilities.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the trends and the different variability of performances in 6 coordinative tests of Movement Differentiation Ability (MTA). 1470 males and 692 females, 11 to 14 years old, practising 30 different sports, were involved in the study. The performed test were: handgrip with 2 hands and dynamometry of leg extensor muscles, standing long jump, basketball sitting throw, and 60-m speed. After determining the maximal performance, sub-maximal trials equal to the 75% of the maximal were required to the subjects. The results showed that in the dynamometric trials the subjects were more accurate, while in the speed test the actual sub-maximal performance was very different compared to the target. The trends of the 10th, 50th and 90th percentile showed a peculiar outcome for each kind of trial. In conclusion, each MTA test presents developmental trends differing from the others, and from the other coordinative abilities.
