Serjoza Gontarev, Vujica Zivkovic, Milan Naumovski, Ruzhdija Kalac

A research on 4,162 research participants, categorized into 9 age groups of males and 9 age groups of females, has been carried out. To realize the aim of the research, 3 motor skill tests have been applied: standing long jump, sit ups in 30 seconds and bent arm hang test. For all age categories the following calculations have been done to the three motor skill tests: basic statistical parameters, while the difference between the age categories and the sex of the participants is determined through a multivariate and univariate analysis of variance (MANOVA and ANOVA), and the LSD-Test. As both sexes become older, the indicators of physical capabilities increase constantly. The growth does not remain the same for all age categories. It rather shows periods of higher and lower intensity. This increase tends to appear the highest among girls when they are between 10 and 12 years old. For the boys the highest increase occurs when they are between 13 and 14 years old. There are statistically significant differences of the physical capabilities between all age categories of boys and girls, benefiting the male research participants.
