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.
