Abstract

The aim of the study is to contribute to the widening of knowledge concerning the motor abilities among the female students of Outdoor Activities at the PF and Occupational Therapy at the FZS. For our research, two questions have been asked. First, what is the difference in the level of motor abilities between the female students of the above mentioned specializations and second, what is the level of motor abilities of the students of Occupational Therapy, i.e. college students, compared to general population? The results showed that in all the measured tests, the sample of Outdoor Activities reveals higher averages and apart from flexibility, also higher medians. It has also been demonstrated, that again apart from flexibility, it proves a statistical significance at the 0,01 level in favour of the Outdoor Activities. The presumption, that the students of Occupational Therapy will have a higher level of motor abilities than the general population was not confirmed.
