Abstract

The main goal of this paper was to determine the
relational differences and variations within
anthropometric and motor abilities of Croatian cadet (at
the age of 12, 13 and 14) and younger junior swimmers (at
the age of 15 and 16). The sample of subjects consisted of
80 male swimmers 12 to 16 years of age, undergoing a
regular training process lasting 5 to 8 years (at least 5
times a week), divided into two age groups according to
the Statute of the Croatian Swimming Federation. The
outcome measurments consisted of 27 measures of
anthropometric characteristics and 11 measures for the
assessment of motor abilities. In order to establish
statistically significant differences between the groups, a
multivariate analysis of variance - MANOVA was used,
whereas the determination of differences within variables
pertaining to both groups of examinees was subject to the
t-test.
Based on the obtained results, we may conclude that a
statistically significant difference exists between the
group of cadet swimmers and the group of younger junior
swimmers in the area of the skeleton longitudinal
dimensionality, explosive and repetitive strength.
