Improving of Physical Fitness through Physical Education in School Students
Lapousis X. George
Keywords: Cardiovascular health,  fi tness,  fi tnessgram test battery,  intervention program,  physical education,  school
It is well recognized that physical fi tness has several health outcomes in young students. Cardio respiratory fi tness levels are associated
with total adiposity, aerobic capacity with risk factors for cardiovascular disease and the muscular fi tness with speed and agility.
Fitnessgram is a test battery to assess the physical fi tness. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a school based intervention
program, to improve the levels of physical fi tness. The sample consisted of 141 students (61 boys and 80 girls) aged 12 and 13 years
old. One-mile run/walk test, the 90 degree push up test, the back saver sit and reach test, the trunk lift test and the curl up test and
Body Mass Index were used. Paired samples t tests were used to assess mean differences between initial and fi nal measurement.
There was not a signifi cant difference of the curl up test before the intervention program and at the end of the intervention program
t (140) =-1,43, p=0,18, for the push up test there was a signifi cant t(140)=-3,37, p=0,001, for the one-mile run/walk test there was a
signifi cant difference t(140)=5,67, p=0,000, for the back saver sit and reach, there was a signifi cant difference t(140)=-4,16, p=0,000,
for the trunk lift test there was a signifi cant difference t(140)=-5,28, p=0,000 and fi nally for the Body Mass Index there was not a
signifi cant difference t(140)=1,79, p=0,086. In conclusion school has an important role for the cardiovascular health, and there is a
need for development such programs inside as well as beyond school boundaries in the families and in society.

Keywords: Educational program,  video,  shooting skill,  basketball
This study aims to determine the effect of using videos in educational sessions to improve the shooting skill performance level
for secondary stage students (16-17) years in Mesteghanem – Algeria. Thus, the researcher adopted the empirical method using
pre- and post-measurements on a sample of 24 students divided into two groups: an empirical group (12 students) and a control group
(12 students) during the study year 2014/2015. As for the tests used, they are skill tests that measure performance in shooting skill
in basketball (shooting from stationary, shooting while jumping and peaceful shooting). After statistical treatment of initial fi ndings, the
researcher found that the educational program using video contributed to enhance shooting skill in basketball for secondary stage
students. The empirical sample depending on the educational program using video excelled over the controlling one depending on
traditional method in results of performing the skill of shooting in basketball.

Keywords: Effective self-learning in handball,  handball,  shooting while jumping,  hook pass overhead
Learning basic skills for each event is one of the most important conditions for successful progress in performance on condition that
it is based on correct scientifi c basics. This helps in quick learning, economic effort and movement. In addition, learning and good
practicing certain skills contributes directly and indirectly in learning other skills, especially in team sports as they include various skills
that may be similar in their paths. They include handball, which is considered one of the games in which the principle of transferring
learning effect during education stages of basic skills, which in turn contributes to accelerate learning and save time, effort and money
if used in a scientifi cally correct manner depending on learning transfer percentages.

Predictive Significance of Some Functional and Morphological Variables of Level of Performance in 100 m Medley Swimming for Young Swimmers
Maha Rasim Jarrad
Keywords: Swimming,  prediction,  morphology,  physiology,  palestine
This study aims to determine the relation between values of some functional and morphological variables with performance level in
the 100 m medley swimming for young swimmers. In addition, the study aims to determine the contribution percentage of the most
signifi cant functional and morphological variables with performance level in the 100 m medley swimming for young swimmers. This study
has been applied on a sample of (50) young swimmers. The researcher used the descriptive survey method by taking the necessary
measurements using devices appropriate to the nature of measurements and the study. Through measures of this study and results
obtained, the researcher found that there are signifi cant relations between each of the time the 100-meter medley and variables of
vital capacity, physical pattern and body mass index. Besides, the fi ndings showed that body mass index is the variable with the most
infl uential contribution at the duration of the 100m Medley where the percentage of contribution value was (93.2%). In light of that, the
equation to predict the period of 100-meter medley was reached for sample of the study with signifi cance of its variables.

Keywords: First strength,  forehand serve,  backhand serve,  tennis
Sport training settings study the relation between fi st strength and muscular strength (which is the basis of elements of physical
conditioning). It is the training that depends on muscular contraction, which in turn worked on developing strength of working muscles
in motor performance during motor performance from work or performance similar to movement or effectiveness in the same direction
of muscular work. Signifi cance of the study lies in determining the correlation between strength of forehand and backhand serving
fi st in tennis.
