Sports coaches are interested in selecting the most promising athletes both at the beginning of their career and in team building in the process of sports activities. The methodology will help to choose the most gifted and create teams based on the more detailed study of the individual characteristics of beginners and experienced athletes. Some psychomotor tests have already been successfully used in elite sports for a long time. When choosing a sports section for children and their parents, the methodology will also tell you the most preferred sports.
