The aim of this study was to observe to what extent the results of some coordination tests applied on senior handball players are included in the technical training level. In the study conducted, 30 athletes aged between 19 and 31 participated (M = 24.1, SD = 3.22). There were 16 tests of coordination (predictor variables) and 7 technical tests as dependent variables applied. Of the 112 correlations between these variables, a linear regression was performed on 14 of them (with values of r ≥ 40%). It was found in this study that there is a weak connection between the two groups of the studied variables. The only values for r > 50% were recorded among the tests that had the manual dexterity in common, that is in fact specific to the handball game. The conclusions concern only this group of athletes and the obtained correlations indicate the degree of association between the used variables and not the cause of those connections.
