game performance evaluation
The present study evaluated the game performance of basketball and soccer classified as goal game in the ball game for children in upper elementary school, and examined whether there are some differences in the evaluation of the ball game performance. Participants were ₃₄ children who are fifth graders at the elementary school. They played games of basketball and soccer for ₁₀ minutes for each game. Their ball game performance was evaluated for each ball game using the game performance evaluation method （GPAI）. Results showed a gender difference in GPAI （SEI） of football, GPAI （SEI） of basketball was significantly higher than GPAI （SEI） of football, and GPAI of basketball was significantly related to GPAI of football. It suggested that the performances required in basketball and soccer classified into goal games are equivalent, and that the support of the instructor for the performance improvement is also similar. It is expected that teaching girls with a focus on enhancing their football skills would lead to their higher game performance.
