Analysis of motor capacities in the maturational stages of female adolescents

What is it about?

Maturation is a biological phenomenon inherent to the human being that acts alongside environmental factors in its relationship with the development of children and adolescents.

Why is it important?

No significant statistical results were found for strength, agility, balance, and flexibility, evidencing that maturational advances did not influence these skills. In the coordination variable, significant results were obtained.

The results of this study suggest that maturational advancement in adolescents does not influence strength, agility, balance or flexibility. However, it does influence coordination, presenting a better performance at stage P2.
