Comparative analysis of motor and specific motor abilities between handball players and non-athletes in the cadet age from Montenegro

The research was conducted in order to determine the differences in motor and motor-specific area of the Montenegrin youth of cadet age (14 ± 6months; 15 ± 6months). In this study a sample of 250 respondents was included, of which 200 boys who are not involved in organized training process and 50 handball players who are involved in organized handball training. Motor area was treated with twenty-one (21) hypothetical variables that cover the area of: segment speed, flexibility, explosive leg strength, explosive power of arms and shoulders, repetitive strength, coordination and balance. In the area of specific motor skills five (5) variables that hypothetically cover the area were applied: shooting precision, the ability of handling the ball, running speed in slalom, speed and keeping the ball and speed without the ball. Based on the results of determining the difference by t-test and discriminant analysis, we conclude that the handball players generally have better motor and specific-motor skills compared to students who are not actively involved in any form of physical activity in addition to regular physical education. Also, derived result points out that fourteen years old handball players have better results for a greater number of variables compared to fifteen years old non-handball players.
