Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The marked decrease in the practice of backyard games of movement constitutes a significant loss of motor habits that influences the sedentary lifestyle of today's children. Numerous studies show in them a progressive decrease in motor skills due to both coordinative and conditional factors. Furthermore, the time devoted to recreational motor activity has decreased and in the moments of free time sedentary games are increasing at the expense of motor sports. The causes of this situation are different and we believe to be: 1) the advent of electronic games, by now intriguing and interesting in children more than movement games in addition to being less strenuous; 2) the lack of safe and protected outdoor spaces as the old "courtyards" now serve as a parking lot for cars. The children are therefore directed towards static games for the room because the open spaces are dangerous; 3) in the school system children are not adequately educated in movement activities and it is believed that the games should only be used for moments of recreation.
