Children are not only confined to learning, but in many cases replacing their mother or father in the exercise of duties, becoming a source of workforce. In such situations, the optional aspect of the child is diminished at maximum in certain periods, the free time of a child or adolescent being considerably diminished; moreover, the time spent on school education is also diminished. Also, children must be taught to develop both their intellectual abilities and their physical strength, development being the result of the effort. These qualit ies and abilit ies can be achieved through the use of extracurricular sport activities, which can guide them, influence their development and make them easier and more beautiful the main objective - preparing the child for life.

The applicative value of the research is the broad possibilities of applying and implementing in the educational practice of the primary cycle of extracurricular activities that will contribute to the stimulation of pupils personality, to their physical and intellectual development, and not least to their civic and patriotic education.
