The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of skiing on the biomotoric characteristics of children with evaluating

tests of girls between the ages of eight and 14 before and after the season. The experimental group of this study was 15

girls who h ad just started skiing and the control group of 30 girls. In total, 45 volunteers joined the study. To follow the

development of the children in the study, the Bruininks biomotoric Oseretsky proficiency testing of engines, Second

Edition Short Form (BOT 2 brief) test: Fine Motor Precision, Fine Motor Integration, Manual Dexterity, Bilateral

Coordination, Balance, Running Speed and Agility, Upper Limb Coordination, and Strength was used and total scores

were measured. All measurements observed changes in the first test by applying the latest testing methods. The

Windows SPSS 17.0 statistical package program was used to analyze the data with Independent Sample t test to find
