Objective: In order to effectively promote physical activity (PA) during childhood, and across the lifespan, a better understanding of the role of early motor skill development on child and adult PA is needed. Methods: Here, we propose a conceptual model delineating the hypothesized influence of motor skill development on child and adult PA, while providing an overview of the current empirical research related to this model. Results: There is consistent and emerging evidence showing that… Expand
Motor Skills and Free-Living Physical Activity Showed No Association Among Preschoolers in 2012 U.S. National Youth Fitness Survey
TLDR
In this large sample of preschoolers, contrary to research with older children, motor skill level was not associated with physical activity and the possibility that physical activity data within the national survey were too limited in range to show possible associations to motor skill development with higher levels of free-living physical activity in preschoolers is discussed.

Bidirectional Relationships among Children's Perceived Competence, Motor Skill Competence, Physical Activity, and Cardiorespiratory Fitness across One School Year
  • Suryeon Ryu, J. E. Lee, +4 authors Zan Gao

  • 2021
TLDR
A fully bidirectional relationship between elementary children's MSC and CRF is suggested, and Educators and health professionals need to emphasize the importance of developing both MSCand CRF to maintain physical health over time. Expand
Association between gross motor competence and health-related quality of life in (pre)schoolchildren: the mediating role of cardiorespiratory fitness
ABSTRACT Background: Motor competence, defined as a person’s ability to execute different motor skills, is directly associated with children’s physical, mental, and social development and may beExpand
The Development of Motor and Pre-literacy Skills by a Physical Education Program in Preschool Children: A Non-randomized Pilot Trial
TLDR
Investigating whether the quotient of gross motor development (QGMD) and pre-literacy skills concerning visual analysis and spatial orientation abilities changed after 16 weeks of PEP in preschool children contributed additional evidence suggesting how a PEP could affect not only motor skills, but also cognitive ones. Expand
Physical Fitness and Motor Competence in Chinese and German Elementary School Children in Relation to Different Physical Activity Settings
TLDR
An increase in the children’s MVPA might be an appropriate aim in the school sport in Germany as well as in the club sport system in China, and family sport should be enhanced in Germany and outside play activities in China. Expand
Relationship between Fundamental Movement Skills and Physical Activity in Preschool-aged Children: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The authors' findings provide strong evidence of associations between specific FMS components and a specific PA intensity, and future studies should consider using a longitudinal study design in order to explore the causal relationship between specific-intensity PA and the FMS subdomain. Expand
Considerations Related to the Definition, Measurement and Analysis of Perceived Motor Competence
TLDR
This article offers clarification regarding the concept of perceived motor competence in terms of the conceptual and theoretical framework used for its explanation and suggests that instruments characterised by an alignment between actual and perceivedMotor competence assessments will help to understand more about children’s motor perceptions. Expand
The Relationship between Actual Fundamental Motor Skill Proficiency, Perceived Motor Skill Confidence and Competence, and Physical Activity in 8–12-Year-Old Irish Female Youth
TLDR
Data show a need for targeting low levels of PA, and low FMS proficiency in female youth, and for developing interventions aiming to enhance perceived PSC levels. Expand

Motor Skill Performance and Physical Activity in Preschool Children
TLDR
Clinicians should work with parents to monitor motor skills and to encourage children to engage in activities that promote motor skill performance, which could be important to the health of children, particularly in obesity prevention. Expand
Childhood motor skill proficiency as a predictor of adolescent physical activity.
TLDR
Object control proficient children were more likely to become active adolescents and motor skill development should be a key strategy in childhood interventions aiming to promote long-term physical activity. Expand
