The structure of motor space in children is one of the essential issues in kinesiology, especially from the aspect of PE teaching process and requirements for adaptation of PE contents to children`s individual possibilities. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to determine the structure of motor space of 7 year old children. The research was conducted at a sample of 123 seven year old children, pupils in second grade in four primary schools in Skopje. The study was realized applying 33 motor tests for estimation of nine motor abilities. The structure of motor space was determined using factor analyses. Obtained results suggest on existence of ten latent dimensions named as: preciseness with throwing objects with hand, speed with change of direction or agility, static strength, factor for precise and explosive movements, coordinated fast movements with legs and trunk, repetitive strength, frequency of movement with legs, balance and two undefined factors (F9 and F10). Isolated factor and their manifestation are highly influenced by the development characteristics and changes specific for the researched period of age.
