The thesis is a theoretical and experimental approach of optimizating the learning process during the Physical Education lessons with middle-school pupils. Our studies demonstrated that the age of 11-12 years old is very favorable for morpho-functional and motric training development and also to the learning of the motilic skills and abilities. This stage of age coincides with sensitive time of coordination abilities development. In this way, the pupils we have studied have a pretty low level as regarding the development of the basic motilic capacities as a rule and especially for the coordination abilities.

This practice has demonstrated that using the moving games during the Physical Education lessons is a way to optimize the Physical Education in school, inclusive in the middle school. As regarding all this we had mentioned the fact that a vast variation of moving games gives us a solid base for the development of coordination abilities. In the same time, we elaborated and applied the methodology for the development of coordination abilities in the practice of Physical Education in school with the help of moving games.

The results of the basic pedagogic experiment have demonstrated that applying this methodology increased a lot the level of motilic training, it also have improved the indexes of coordination abilities development of the pupils from the experimental groups comparatively with those from other group. Inside the experimental groups the number of the absences without leave at the Physical Education lessons has diminished considerably and the annual mean of the pupils has increased, and this fact shows the pupils bigger interest for the Physical Education in school.

Materials of this research can be used for the elaboration of planning and control the documents in the teachers’ practice of Physical Education, but the results of this research can be applied with success during the lecture of “Physical Education Theory and Methodical” and “Moving games” for the students from high education institutes of Physical Culture.
