Currently, in the field of Physical Education, it is essential to insert a physical assessment or test, because through them it is possible to diagnose different aspects, assess variables related to motor, social, affective, cognitive and other issues. One of the means found to identify the level of Motor Coordination was the German KTK test (Körperkoordination Test fürKinder) proposed by Kiphard and Schilling. Objective: To assess Global Motor Coordination through the KTK test, in adolescents aged 12 to 13 years old, of both sexes, from a sports initiation team to handball in the city of Nanuque-MG. Methodology: From a population of 101 athletes enrolled in the handball sports school, 51 students were selected who will fit in the age group of the study. It is worth mentioning that the 51 students chosen correspond to 100% of the population with this age group. The KTK test was used to assess global motor coordination, where the diagnosis is made through the results of the Very Weak, Weak, Regular, Good and Very Good coefficient. For data analysis, descriptive statistics and graphs were used bar. Results: The results obtained through the KTK test, showed that the majority presented the MUIO BOM result, with a total of 42 (82%) athletes, being 25 (60%) boys and 17 (40%) girls totaling 82% of those evaluated. Conclusion: It was concluded that with the elaboration of this research, the level of Global Motor Coordination of adolescents from 12 to 13 years old, of this handball team in the city of Nanuque / MG, the Very Good coefficient, showing that they have a sufficient state for sports and daily practice without impairing motor development in this age group of early adolescence.
