The phenomenon of the
children’s growth in

characteristic to the sex and the age within the analyzed interval.
Using the height and the body weight indexes as indicators of the
growing process, the study emphasized that there is an accelerated
growth period both for boy and girls between the ages of 12-14. The
girls display a development corresponding to their age, with an optimal
report between the growth in height and weight, while, for the boys,
the growth in weight is excessive comparing to the one in height. This
phenomenon lasts for the entire observed age
anthropometry, sport education.
