Abstract

Abstract Influence of height and weight on selected fundamental movement skill Psychology variables among rural school children. To the fundamental movement skill (fms) proficiency or the ability to perform basic skills variables throwing, catching and jumping has been linked to participation in lifelong physical activity. Fms proficiency among rural school children has declined in the previous 4-6 years, with more children performing fms at a low-mastery level. These declines may help explain the insufficient levels of participation in health promoting physical activity seen in today’s rural school children. The after school time period (e.g., 3 to 6 p.m.), is increasingly considered an opportune time for fundamental movement skill activity interventions. To date, little research has examined the potential for after school programming to improve fms proficiency. Participants (T.D.T.A Middle school, Nanjankulam (n=40, 6-10 years) of two existent height and weight physical activity based after school programs, a low-organized games and a sports-based program, were pre- and post-tested for fms proficiency using the stress & throwing test of gross fundamental movement skills development for independent variables (analyses) questioners and children play softball throwing (tgmd-2) over an six-week period. The collected data was analysed with Independent „t‟ test at 0.05 level of confidence. The height & weight based program participants showed improvement in fms over the six- week study program participants significantly improved their proficiency (p=0.00, eta2=0.30). No significant (p=0.13, eta2 = 0.06). These results suggest that after school programs with a low organized games-based focus may support a moderate improvement in fms proficiency in young children. Better training of after school program leaders on how to teach fms may be necessary to assist children in acquiring sufficient proficiency in fms. Key words: (Height & weight) fundamental movement skill variables, stress, and rural school children
