This research was realized on a sample of 123 male, 6 years old children, with aim to determine the relations between morphologic and motor variables. These relations are estimated using 17 anthropometric measures that cover four-dimensional structure of morphologic space and 33 motor tests for estimation of 9 segments of motor space.Using canonic correlation analyses, 3 pairs of morphologic factors were isolated and point out of significant correlation between anthropometric variables and motor tests. The results analysis points out that smaller values of some anthropometric measures (circumferences, lean body mass, subcutaneous adipose tissue and longitudinal dimensions) results with better results in motoric tests for estimation of motor abilities depended from energetic and informational components. With increased values of measurements for body volume, it could be expected results improvement in certain motor tests for estimation of speed, preciseness with hand and balance, realized with certain body parts
