Certain physical and psychological qualities are important for different sports.

Testing will help to identify the child’s predisposition to certain activities. Based on the results of the study, suitable sports will be selected for the child. The report with the results will be handed over to parents, and if necessary, will also be sent to e-mail.
A similar program “Choose Sport!” is implemented by the “Center for Innovative Sports Technologies and training of National Teams” of the Department of Sports of the City of Moscow. During testing, more than 50 different indicators are taken into account. As part of child testing, molecular genetic studies can be carried out on a child at the request of parents to create a genetic profile, which contributes to obtaining more accurate data on his predisposition to certain sports.
“Children are the future of Moscow sports. It is our younger generation that will represent Moscow in the sports arena in the future. Therefore, it is very important to choose the right sport for the child as early as possible in order to immediately start moving in the right direction,” the Department of Sports of the city of Moscow said.
