During the training process, the development of coordinative abilities represents a priority from the first stage of training. Coordinative abilities, as well as speed, are genetically determined; therefore the possibility of improving them is lower for athletes who do not have these innate abilities. Training coordinative abilities at the proper time is crucial in what concerns future development capacity. Developing coordinative abilities to a higher level influences learning and perfecting new motor acts and their stability over time, promotes an efficient execution of motor acts and actions, in various conditions, supports better use of the other conditional abilities, encourages restructuring movements in high performance training phases and improving basic and applied motor skills.
