Abstract


The aim of the study is to examine the relationship between children’s 50 m freestyle swimming performances and motor performances. There were 32 swimmers (male = 21, female = 11), who had been swimming for at least one and a half year, participated in the study. The motor performances of the participating swimmers were determined through the Dordel Koch Test (DKT) and 50 m swimming performances via the stopwatch. The Spearman Correlation Analysis was used to determine the relationship between children’s motor performances and the swimming performances of 50 m. As a result of the statistical analysis, it was determined that the performance categories of DKT sub-dimensions were DKTshuttle, DKTpush-up and DKTbalance performances of the categories in which both girls and boys were the best. It was determined that male swimmers would perform DKT6min running and female swimmers would have a positive effect on the 50 m freestyle swimming performance of DKTsideward jump performances (p <0.01, p <0.05). In addition, it was determined that all the swimmers had a positive effect on the 50 m freestyle swimming performances of the DKT sideward jump, DKT6min running and DKTflexibilty performance (p <0.01, p <0.05). As a result, it can be stated that DKT6min running, which is the demonstration of aerobic performance, increased DKTflexibility and DKTsideward jump performance will contribute to 50m swimming performance.. Moreover, it can be suggested that the performance development of the upper extremity (DKTshuttle and DKTpush-up), which is required for the branch in the performance, is categorized as performance.
