Research background.Research literature has shown that the earlier studies rather narrowly focusedon motor skills and competenciesin physical activities in primary school children age groups. In the earlychildhood children begin to explore the environment and develop motorskills in certain groups. One of themis known as the fundamental motor skills, which are divided into“self-movement”and“object movement”.“Self-movement”skills include body movements in space andarereferred to as running, carrying, jumping,sliding and canter (Haywood,Getchell,2015).“Objet-movement”skills consistof object manipulation andability to control.“Object-movement”formsarethrowing, catching, jumping, kicking, striking and tossing(Haywood,Getchell, 2005). These skills form the basis for future movement and physical activity (Clark,Metcalfe, 2012). One of the motor skills of the analytical methods is MOBAK (Herrmann et al., 2015)(theGerman translation of“Motorische Basiskompetenzen” (basic motor skills)) test battery, which is used in thisstudy. We tried to discover the relationships between physical activity and sociodemographicas well asanthropometric indicators.Theaim of the researchwas todiscover the relationships between MOBAK and physical activity,sociodemographicas well as well asand anthropometric indicators.Results.Results showed that therewererelationships between MOBAK and physical activity in“Object movement” factor (p>0.05). Therewereno relationships between MOBAK and sociodemographicand anthropometric indicators (p<0.05).Conclusions.MOBAK test battery has relationships with physical activity. MOBAK test battery hasno relationships with sociodemographic and anthropometric indicators.Keywords:motor skills, physical activity, sociodemographic and anthropometric indicators.
