locomotor skills, involving the movement of the body from one location to another (e.g., running, jumping), and object-control skills, involving the manipulation of an object (e.g., catching, kicking) ( Lubans, Morgan, Cliff, Barnett, & Okely, 2010 ). FMS proficiency is associated with numerous health

display better object control skills than girls, evidence on gender differences in locomotor skills is inconclusive ( Barnett et al., 2016 ). Indeed, some studies show that girls outperform boys in their locomotor skills ( Hardy, King, Farrell, Macniven, & Howlett, 2010 ; LeGear et al., 2012 ; Liong

Surprisingly also, how does the locomotor

It is hypothesized that the Spanish version of the PMSC will fit a three-factor model (i.e., object control, locomotor and active play) and that boys will score higher than girls in perceived motor competence

). FMS are commonly divided into three categories: locomotor skills (the ability to propel the body through space), object control skills (the ability to propel or manipulate objects in space), and balance (the ability to maintain upright posture; Clark & Metcalfe, 2002 ; Ulrich, 2018 ). Learning FMS
