The purpose of the research is to point out the correlations between motor skills and behavioral characteristics of military high school students during COVID 19 pandemic. The research was held from 8th to 12th March 2021 on a group of 44 Romanian students (9 girls and 35 boys), age average 17.6 and consisted in testing the motor abilities by undergoing a tactical trail with 10 stages and filling in the Achenbach System of Empirically Based Assessment (ASEBA) questionnaires. Data were analyzed with PASW Statistic18 by using correlation analyses, and the significance level was set at P<0.05 and P<0.01. The results reveal that, statistically, the recorded time correlates positively with Somatic Complaints, Thought Problems and Internalizing scale. The total time statistically corelates with Thought Problems. The military students reported poorer motor skills abilities during pandemic. They seemed to have a sedentary lifestyle with more internalized problems and less workout.
