Study Regarding the Evaluation of Dynamic Balance in Seventh Graders
When one speaks of something dynamic, one's thought goes towards an action/activity that is performed quickly. In the current context, dynamism comprised all activity. Physical education and sports are components where motion dynamics is "at home". Without these activities, one cannot speak of a normal psychomotor development in pupils, regardless of their age. At the same time, balance is a basic component of psychomotor skills, its development being a main objective of physical education lesson. This was the reason why this theme was chosen, aiming to observe the level of dynamic balance in pupils who do not practice any athletic activities in their leisure time. The test selected for this study was the "Six-Meter Timed Hop" test, belonging to authors M.P. Reiman and RC. Manske. This study started from the hypothesis stating that there is a strong positive correlation between the dynamic balance and the somatic parameters of height and weight in seventh graders.
The following research methods were used: the documentation method, the testing method, the statistical mathematical method, and the graphical representation method.
In the end, the study has confirmed partially the working hypothesis.
