The ability to maintain and control the balance is the basis for the design and construction of more complex motor skills in the context of sports performance. The purpose of this study is to verify whether the training sports at a competitive level can affect the postural control in static conditions, in particular we want to determine whether the boys practicing basketball show a better postural control than the group of swimmers, which are not usually trained to the maintenance and control of static balance anti-gravitary, and also compared to the control group. To this end were administered 2 types of tests (on support bi-podalic and mono-podalic) with eyes open and eyes closed, in order to compare and evaluate the possible influences of some sporting performance on the control of static balance. Precisely were examined postural performance of 3 groups of children between 11 and 13 years, of which 2 groups practicing different sports at a competitive level (basketball and swimming) and a third group who practice non-competitive sports activities.

Abstract

The ability to maintain and control the balance is the basis for the design and construction of more complex motor skills in the context of sports performance. The purpose of this study is to verify whether the training sports at a competitive level can affect the postural control in static conditions, in particular we want to determine whether the boys practicing basketball show a better postural control than the group of swimmers, which are not usually trained to the maintenance and control of static balance anti-gravitary, and also compared to the control group. To this end were administered 2 types of tests (on support bi-podalic and mono-podalic) with eyes open and eyes closed, in order to compare and evaluate the possible influences of some sporting performance on the control of static balance. Precisely were examined postural performance of 3 groups of children between 11 and 13 years, of which 2 groups practicing different sports at a competitive level (basketball and swimming) and a third group who practice non-competitive sports activities.
