The aim of this study is to determine the motoric parameters of pre-school gymnasts and investigate the relations between them. 30 gymnasts participated in a research at the age of 7.23 ± 1.50. In the research data regarding resting pulse rate, blood pressure, height, weight, flamingo balance test, plate tapping test, standing long jump, shuttle movement, sit and reach flexibility test, hand dynamometer, hanging with bent arm and 10x5 m running were evaluated. Descriptive statistics were

Pearson's correlation coefficient is calculated to study the direction and strength of the linear relation between the variables with normal distribution and Spearman Rank correlation coefficient is calculated for those who are not normally distributed. In this study the relations between long jump and 10x5 m, plate tapping test and long jump, flamingo balance performance and long jump, flamingo balance performance and plate tapping test also plate tapping test and sit and reach are investigated. An inverse correlation is found between long jump and 10x5 m and also between long jump and plate tapping test. It is concluded that there is an inverse relation between flamingo balance test with plate tapping test and plate tapping test with sit and reach flexibility test. Same directional relationship is only determined between long jump with flamingo balance test.
