Abstract Background Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) are the building block for the development of the core competencies(e.g., catch, kick, run). FMS has been shown to the basic foundation for future sports and physical activity skills. Recent studies show that FMS is on low-level proficiency across all ages and males are more competent than females globally. No studies have investigated the competencies of FMS in Indian Children. Methodology:Due to time constraints, two volunteering primary schools were selected through convenient sampling and included. 476 children of parent volunteers were included in the study. FMS competency was assessed using FMS manual which is proved for its validity and reliability in children across the globe. The FMS manual advocates eleven skills - run, kick, vertical jump, ball bounce, punt, dodge, leap, overhand throw, forehand strike, two hand side arm strike. Participant performed each skill for three trials, and mastery was checked with 6 – 8 criteria for each skill fulfilled. Data analysis was done using chi-square and descriptive statistics in SPSS version 16.0.Results & Discussion:476 children (204 girls) completed the pertained skills allowed. 22% were age group 5-6, 30 were of 8 – 9 ages, 44% were between 10 and above. Only There was a significant difference between males and females. Males were more competent than females.Conclusion We conclude that Indian Children exhibits poor proficiency of fundamental movement skills in spite of the skill nature whether locomotor or object handling. We recommend FMS teaching shall be a part of Indian Curriculum.
