Methods Of Sports Selection Of Young Athletes


In modern conditions, sports activities place the highest demands on athletes. First of all, this applies to the physical qualities, to the functional state of the athlete, as well as to his technical and tactical readiness in his chosen sport. Undoubtedly, the training and education of an athlete is a long complex process, the quality of which is determined by a number of factors. One of these factors is the selection of gifted children, their further sports orientation. The article summarizes the data of theoretical and experimental works on the problem of selecting children for playing sports. Tests and diagnostic methods are characterized, with the help of which it is possible to identify the level of development of certain abilities and qualities of young athletes. Special attention is paid to the method of reaction to a moving object (RDO) to assess the predisposition of young athletes to play sports. The results of the study allow us to conclude that the developed methodology can be used to select and identify the most gifted athletes for playing sports.
