The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of parental supporting role and their physical activity on fundamental movement skills (FMS) and physical activity in girls aged 9-11 years old. Statistical Society in this study was all of students in kerman's elementary public schools. The total sample consisted of 350 girls 9-11 years old and their parents. parents filled out social economic status (SES) questionnaire, the parenting support role questionnaire and Becke questionnaire to measured the level of physical activity and girls filled out the Physical Activity Questionnaire for Older Children (PAQ-C) (Kowalski et al, 2004). Just family that have SES low entered to study (300 students) because SES medium and high was very few (9%). sampling selected by stage floor cluster, from 5 geographic area in kerman. then examine fundamental movement skills with gross motor development-3 (TGMD-3) Consists of two subtests locomotion skills and object control skills (Ulrich 2000). SPSS23 and AMOS23 used for calculate data. structural equation and analysis of variance (ANOVA) used for inferential statistics. We found that parents physical activity effect on fundamental movement skills, such as locomotor (father and mother in work, sport and leisure time: 0.11 ,0.11, 0.13, 0.16, 0.12, 0.12) and object control (father and mother in work, sport and leisure time: 0.19, 0.23, 0.20, 0.14, 0.12, 0.19) in girls 9 – 11 years old. Parents physical activity effect on her doghther physical activity. physical activity effect on locomotor (0.19) and object control (0.14). Result showed that parenting support role (father, mother, both) have'nt any effect on fundamental movement skills (p value>0.05). our investigates shows parental physical activity can improve fundamental movement in girls.
