In this paper we established a correlation between volleyball players and fencers regarding the mental flexibility and it’s role in efficiency in performing tehnical-tactical actions. In order to find this correlation we applied the Kraepellin test for the mental flexibility and a specific motor testing meant to determine the efficiency of technical-tactical performances. According to the test values registered, the actual training approach determines a stagnation in the evolution of technical-tactical structures, as an example, volleyball players prove stability in solving working tasks, but lack flexibility and as a following stage of the research, we propose the implementation of patterns based on global learning of technical-tactical actions, developing players’ reasoning and creativity in solving working tasks.

Key words:

sport performance, athletes, movement intelligence, mental tests.
