Study on the Relation Between the Coordinative Capacity and the Specific Technique of Rhythmic Gymnastics in the Junior Groups
Keywords:body difficulty, coordinative capabilities, correlation, rhythmic gymnastics
This paper’s purpose was to investigate the correlation between components of the coordinative capacity and the technical elements of rhythmic gymnastics. In the research we investigated 14 gymnasts, through tests assessing the general and specific coordinative capacity (the Matorin, Bruininks-Oseretsky, Bass, Flamingo, spatial-temporal orientation capacity assessment trial, the rhythmic capacity determination test, the body-apparatus coordination assessment trial) and the assessment trials of the technical training (rotations, jumps, balance with the handling of the apparatus). The results obtained from calculating the correlation indices between the coordinative capacities and the technical trials showed that between the jumps and coordinative capacities there are comprised values from - 0.08 to 0.51; the balance elements and coordinative capacities comprise values between - 0.03 and 0.56; the rotations were in the range between - 0.08 and 0.53. These results suggest the importance that has to be given to the coordination capacity development in the sports training.
