Abstract

The study focuses on measuring the body height of first year, second year and third year UST students and some sportsmen of national teams in the male category. Besides this, a measurement of their parents’ body height has been calculated, respectively their mothers and fathers of these students and quality sportsmen. The evaluation of body height is achieved with standard measurement, which is done with tools available at every sport environment.127 male students are considered in this study, with their own approval, whom are from sport categories: soccer, athletics, basketball, volleyball and other sports. Simultaneously, measurements were taken for the body height index from 254 parents, 127 fathers and 127 mothers of the same students.All these data have been undergoing statistical processing through regressive analysis, concluding with regression equations. By measuring the body height of the UST students and some sportsmen of national teams, and that of their parents it was possible to evaluate the statistical parameters, arithmetic mean, quadratic standard deviation, the coefficient of variation, safety intervals, in order to reach a statistical relationship between them and given the statistical relationships, to present the regression equation, which can help us to predict the body height of children when they are systematically involved in sports.
