Sažetak
The aim of this research was to determine the latent dimensions of motor abilities among primary school boys enrolled in Grades 5 to 8. Students' age ranged from 11 to 15 years. The total number of students who participated in the study was 434 boys. The variables were defined on the basis of 15 motor tests. In order to identify the latent dimensions of motor space, inter-correlation matrices were subjected to exploratory factor analysis procedure. The obtained results indicate that in all age groups there is one latent dimension, which is mainly affected by the indicators of coordination and explosive and repetitive strength. This latent dimension may be interpreted as general or motor factor. The second latent dimension was mainly affected by the tests for the assessment of flexibility, and it is stable and homogenous in all age groups. The third latent dimension which can be interpreted is the one that was mostly affected by the tests for the assessment of the velocity of movement frequency. These results were mainly consistent with previous studies ; however, because of the differences in children's development and different biological maturation conditions, further studies need to be conducted in the future.
