  • EFFECTS OF A 12-WEEK AEROBIC TRAINING PROGRAM ON THE COGNITIVE AND MOTOR
           ABILITIES OF PRESCHOOL CHILDREN

    • Authors: Borko Katanić, Aleksandra Aleksić Veljković, Nenad Stojiljković, Slađana Stanković, Petar Mitić
      Pages: 223 - 232
      Abstract: The aim of this longitudinal study was to determine the effects of aerobic training on the cognitive and motor abilities of preschool children. The sample of participants included 47 preschool children aged five to seven. The participants were randomly divided into two groups: the experimental (n=25, 6.35±0.32yrs) and the control group (n=22, 5.90±0.27yrs). The experimental group took part in aerobic training for children over a 12-week period at a rate of three training sessions per week, 30min each. To evaluate the children’s cognitive abilities, the school maturity test was used, or more precisely, three of its subtests: visual memory, stacking cubes, and codes. To evaluate their motor abilities, the BOT-2 (Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency) battery of tests was used, that is, its subtests: fine motor integration, manual dexterity, bilateral coordination, and balance. The children completed a total of 77 tasks, of which 48 were cognitive and 29 motor, both at the initial and the final measurement. Finally, the paper analyzes a total of 10 variables, four cognitive and six motor, which represent the total standardized values based on gender and age for each of the abilities. No significant effect of the training was determined for any of the cognitive abilities variables. The results indicate that aerobic training had significant effects on the following motor variables: fine motor skills (p=.020), bilateral coordination (p=.000), motor balance (p=.001), and body coordination (p=.000). A significant effect was determined for all four variables. We can conclude that aerobic training can represent an excellent means for the psycho-physical development of preschool children.

  • DO STUDENTS FROM RURAL SETTINGS HAVE MORE POSITIVE ATTITUDES TOWARDS
           OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES'

    • Authors: Nikola Stojanović, Petar Mitić, Aleksandra Projović, Zvezdan Savić
      Pages: 233 - 244
      Abstract: The main goal of the present study was to explore if there are any differences in attitudes toward outdoor activities between students from urban and rural areas. Moreover, it was necessary to extract data regarding implementation of certain models of outdoor activities in order to evaluate which models are mostly carried out as extracurricular activities in nature in order to draw valuable conclusions for future practice. The results showed that there were no significant differences between students from urban and rural settings, except in students’ attitudes towards benefits of outdoor activities on proper growth and development in favor of students from rural areas. According to Cohen’s interpretation, a small to moderate effect (Cohen’s d=0.02-0.38) regarding living environment variations was present in the relevant items. Moreover, excursions were the most implemented extracurricular activity at schools, and regarding outdoor activities, outings and athletic cross country were the most dominant. However, outdoor activities like winter and summer outdoor activities, camping, cycling, hiking tours should be implemented in order to potentially improve students’ engagement in physical activity in natural environments. Future studies should be focused on exploring the effect of diverse natural environments, PE teachers’ and practitioners’ competencies, school curriculums, students and parents’ barriers towards outdoor physical activities. This multifactorial approach could probably provide causal relationship, which could clarify this issue.

  • STANDARDIZED PLANNED AGILITY TESTS IN YOUNG FOOTBALL PLAYERS: MATHEMATICAL
           MODELING IN THE FUNCTION OF DEFINING PHYSICAL POTENTIAL

    • Authors: Zoran Pajić, Slobodan Simović, Milivoj Dopsaj
      Pages: 245 - 256
      Abstract: Each process of efficient management of an athlete’s condition entails proper diagnostics, prognostics, and modelling by measuring gathered information. This study aims to come up with a standardized mathematical model for assessing the physical condition of young football players in relation to planned and programmed agility. This study implemented the mathematical modelling method for the general profiling of the evaluated motor capacity, in order to obtain a tool for classifying the condition of an individual in relation to the population standard. This study applied planned and pre-programmed motion patterns to test the capacity of planned agility using six variables: 3 original and 3 calculated. All the original variables underwent mathematical transformation in relation to the multiscale modelling of Z-distribution, so that all the results have been transformed into an analogous result in the range between 0, as the distribution minimum, and 100, as the distribution maximum. This produced analogous quantitative, i.e. numerical values of the score, i.e. the distributive position of each result in relation to the tested age group. The defined mathematical models for the prediction of the level of development of the measured agility type do not only have absolute, but also hypothetical potential for determining the relative position of each young player in relation to their age population. The proposed models have strength at the level of absolute explained common variance (Adj R2 = 1.000, i.e. 100.0% of the explanation) with a marginal standard error of prediction (only 0.003 points). Processing diagnosed information in such a way makes it possible to precisely define the initial, transit, and final condition of the athlete, programming an efficient, optimized and quality training process, as well as proper identification of talents in selecting young athletes.

  • ASSIGNMENT OF BROADCASTING RIGHTS AS A SOURCE OF FINANCING SPORTS
           ACTIVITIES

    • Authors: Mario Lukinović, Sonja Bunčić, Milovan Bratić
      Pages: 257 - 269
      Abstract: The goal of this paper is to provide a review of the transfer of rights to broadcasting sporting events as one source of financing sporting activities and clubs through comparative practice and current legal regulations. Sports and the law are deeply intertwined, primarily due to the fact that sports are exposed to various challenges, ranging from doping, prevention of violence at sports manifestations, all the way to competition regulations, managing sports organizations and business processes. In this paper, we will analyze the positive legal regulations that enable the realization of income based on the right to broadcast. Sources of financing are necessary for the conduct of sporting activities. The most successful clubs generate the biggest part of their revenue through leasing broadcasting rights for sporting events and marketing. Broadcasting sporting events not only enables generation of direct revenue, but also removes the shackles of previously existing spatial barriers and thus contributes to the popularity of sports, athletes and their clubs. Occurrences such as the coronavirus pandemic have led to the organization of sporting events in controlled conditions, without the presence of an audience or with numerous limitations and restrictions. In such situations, numerous institutions have offered interactive forms of communication with the consumers (online museum tours, concerts, etc.), thus not only minimizing losses, but also maintaining contact with the audience. This situation has proven the significance of digital communication with the consumers. Even though the year 2020 went by without the previously planned Olympics and, in most cases, without sports fans in the stands, the sporting industry recorded a jump (from 388.28 billion dollars in 2020 to 440.77 billion of dollars in 2021). The growth in earnings was achieved predominantly due to the increase in media revenues.

  • DOMINANCE-INDUCED MODIFICATIONS ON MAXIMAL FORCE AND NEURAL ACTIVATION OF
           THE ANKLE MUSCLES

    • Authors: Ivana Petrović, Ioannis G. Amiridis, Eleftherios Kellis, Daniel Stankovic
      Pages: 271 - 283
      Abstract: The purpose of the present empirical study was to assess the differences in dominance between lower limb maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) and neural activation. Twenty active and right-leg dominant (age: 31.3 ± 9.5 years, height: 178.2 ± 7.6 cm, weight: 76.5 ± 11.0 kg) participants performed 3 maximal dorsal flexions (DF) and plantar flexions (PF) at 3 ankle angles (75°, 90°: anatomical position, and 105°) which corresponded to short, intermediate and long lengths for DF muscles and the opposite for PF muscles. Electromyography (EMG) was used to assess ankle muscle activity (tibialis anterior, gastrocnemius medialis and soleus). The results showed non-significant differences between lower limb MVC force and EMG-muscle activation. However, a significant main effect of the angle was observed. During DF, the MVC force was greater (p < 0.05) at 90° and 105° than at 75° for both legs and during PF, the MVC force was greater (p < 0.05) at 75° and 105° than at 90° for both legs. Moreover, during DF and PF, the EMG-muscle activation was greater (p < 0.05) at 105° than at 75° an 90° for both legs. The results indicate that dominance was not associated with different levels of force and neural activation during maximal voluntary contraction with the ankle muscles. It is concluded that dominance does not have an impact on maximal strength and neural activation of the ankle muscles and any mechanisms that contribute to the  dominance effect were not evident within this experimental protocol.

  • THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT EXERCISE PROGRAMS ON MOTOR ABILITIES IN PRIMARY
           SCHOOL CHILDREN

    • Authors: Radomir Pržulj, Nebojša Trajković, Bojan Bjelica, Ljubica Milanović, Rade Jovanović, Ljubo Milićević
      Pages: 285 - 294
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to determine and to compare the effects of different exercise programs on motor abilities in primary school children. A total of 60 (30 boys and 30 girls) primary school children, aged 12 years ± 6 months voluntarily participated in this study. Motor abilities were assessed by the following variables: the squat jump, long jump, bent-arm hang, sit-ups, push-ups, sprint 30m, T-test, handgrip, and medicine ball throw tests. All groups had regular physical education classes twice a week and one hour of additional physical activity, with the experimental groups exercising with a medicine ball (E1) following a developmental gymnastics program (E2) during the 12 weeks. The ANCOVA showed statistically significant differences between the groups (p<0.05) in most motor abilities tests in favor of both experimental groups, with slightly better results in favor of the E1 group compared to E2. The results of this research show that exercise with a medicine ball and developmental gymnastics can lead to significant improvements in motor abilities among primary school children.

  • BODY COMPOSITION AND NUTRITIONAL STATUS OF PRESCHOOL CHILDREN

    • Authors: Vladan Pelemiš, Danimir Mandić, Zoran Momčilović, Vladimir Momčilović, Velibor Srdić
      Pages: 295 - 304
      Abstract: The main goal of this research was to determine gender-related differences in some parameters of body composition caused by the nutritional status of preschool children, and group differences within subsamples caused by the nutritional status of both genders. The total sample consisted of 188 participants, boys (n=107) and girls (n=81) from Belgrade, with average values of body height BH=124.59cm±5.76 and body mass BM=24.32kg±3.11, average age 6.39±0.44 years. Body composition was assessed using the InBody 230 device. The main parameters of descriptive statistics were calculated. The MANOVA method was used to determine gender differences in the entire sample, and the ANOVA method was used to determine individual differences. A series of Post-Hoc Bonferroni tests were performed to determine between which groups significant statistical differences existed. This study provides encouraging findings when it comes to a satisfactory percentage of normally nourished children of both genders, but it should also point to a certain trend in the rise of obese and overweight children who make up almost 17% of the total sample. The differences observed in the girls’ subsample may indicate girls enter the pre-pubertal phase earlier than boys, based on the differences in the amount of body fat tissue, but also always greater muscle mass in the boys' subsample, and lower average values of body mass and the Body Mass Index in the girls' subsample. Constant monitoring of children’s nutritional status and physical abilities every six months or once a year is recommended.

  • WHEN SPORT MEETS ART: HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA

    • Authors: Tanja Cvetković
      Pages: 305 - 310
      Abstract: The paper refers to the history of Olympic art competitions which at one point were part of the Olympic Games competitions. In that vein, the author of the paper analyzes the Canadian short story Hockey Night in Canada  which is inspired by sport. The story illustrates how domestic objects could be turned into objects of art and how they help Schoemperlen reflect on her characters or apply her own technique of writing.
