Physical Fitness in Brazilian Students from 10 to 15 years-old at Capao Bonito - SP
This research study was managed by Marco Aurelio Bugni, a junior/high school teacher and Volleyball coach with a group of local students and athletes. The objectives of the study were:
Identify the profile of physical fitness in students from 10 to 15 years-old;
Compares the growth and development curves between boys and girls;
Compares the results with the original from Sao Caetano do Sul CELAFISCS
Were used 360 subjects being 30 per sex and age. The results showed differences already found in other studies, where the girls showed an height maturation peak earlier than boys, although in neuromotors variables, they(girls) lose in almost all tests.
The comparing between Capao Bonito and Sao Caetano do Sul presented few statistics significant differences, pointing to similar development between the cities.
The first research was achieved in 1995 and one is being now (FEB/97), so we'd rather finished it first and then give more information about new results and conclusions. If you wanna the complete 1995'Research just tell us.
