The purpose is to explore relationships among moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA), sedentary behavior (SB), and actual gross motor competence (MC) and perceived motor competence (PMC) in young children. Data were collected in 101 children (M age = 4.9 ± 0.93 years). MVPA was measured with accelerometry. Gross MC was assessed with the Portuguese version of the Movement Assessment Battery for Children. PMC was evaluated with the Pictorial Scale of Perceived Competence and Social Acceptance for Young Children. Regressions were used to determine predictive relationships related to the following research questions: (a) Can gross MC predict perceived motor competence, (b) can actual and perceived gross MC predict MVPA, and (c) can actual and perceived gross MC predict SB? Results showed no association between gross MC and PMC and between these constructs and MVPA and SB. This lack of association in the early ages is probably due to the young children’s cognitive inability to make accurate self-judgments and evaluations. A child might have low levels of actual gross MC but perceive her- or himself as skillful.

more “detailed” Bruinicks–Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency-2 assessment instrument. As such, the purpose of this study was to examine the fine and gross motor competence of children with ASD, using the Bruinicks–Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency-2. Results support both the hypothesis of this study

In the last decade there has been growing evidence supporting a positive association between children’s gross motor competence and their physical activity, fitness, and weight status ( Barnett, Lai, et al., 2016 ; Lubans, Morgan, Cliff, Barnett, & Okely, 2010 ; Robinson et al., 2015 ). However

competence, and also any associations these variables may have with PA. As highlighted in the review by Barnett et al. ( 2016 ), PA is the most examined correlate of gross motor competence with many studies looking at the relationship between FMS and PA alone ( Barnett et al., 2016 ; Holfelder & Schott

without visual impairments ( Barnett et al., 2016 ). Motor competence, which includes gross and fine motor skills, is a known determinant of positive developmental trajectories for health in children without disabilities ( Robinson et al., 2015 ). For youth, gross motor competence often refers to goal
