This research aims to evaluate the effects of motor activities on pupils at primary education. The two samples of pupils were divided as follows: the first group, experimental group consisted of twenty-five students with the age between ten and twelve years old, thirteen boys and twelve girls, group which followed a specific program containing agonistic, playful and initiation training in sports games; and the second group, the control group, consisted of twenty-five students with the age between ten and twelve years old, fourteen boys and eleven girls, group that took the classical physical education and sports curriculum. The motor evaluation tests at which the students have been evaluated have been taken over from the national evaluation system: speed running on 50 m, 5x10 m relay race, resistance running, jumping, throw off the oina ball, abdominal force, back force, upper members force, and lower member force. The results showed that the pupils from the experimental group had better performances compared with those from the control group at the final test, indicating the effectiveness of the agonistic, playful and initiation programs in sports games. Differences in the final testing among student groups were significant in all motor tests (p <0.05). Conclusions have shown that the research hypothesis was valid, so we can say that inclusion of programs with agonistic, playful and initiation in sports games can influence in a good way the student’s motor performance at this age.
