Systematic review showed that motor competency may be directly correlated with the enhancement of long-term health outcomes in children and adolescents (DeMeester et al., 2016). In addition, children with higher levels of perceived motor competence (PMC) are often more likely to participate in physical activities (Stodden et al., 2008). A total of 49 preschoolers, 23 girls and 26 boys participated in this study. Results show a positive correlation between PMC and AMC in FMS skills among preschoolers.
