We can say with certainty about children’s coordinative capacities that they have a wide applicability in both daily and sporting activity, which means that they are native and perfectable qualities if subjects act on them selectively, continuously and as early as possible. Coordinative capacities represent a combination of complex qualities, which interfere with all other motor qualities. At the young school age, due to the maturation of the nervous system and as a result of the large number of organized motor skills, the level of coordination improves. The ease of learning the movements is benefited by a certain type of cognitive and sensory development recorded during this period and that materializes in the capacity of perception and observation. As far as the skill is concerned, the muscular strength increases and the ambidextrous character is emphasized, but also the extremities of the left and the right are highlighted. Ossification at this stage is intense at the level of the pelvis in the girls, as well as the calcification processes at the level of the hand, the joints strengthen and the volume of the muscles increases, the fine musculature of the hand develops. With all this in mind, it is important to work with care, as any kind of exaggeration or incorrect positions leads to persistent deformations. The morphofunctional maturity of the young children of school age implies the adaptation of the body to certain physical efforts, to the formation of awareness skills and to the relatively rational coordination of their movements.
